Palmetto, Inc. is a subsidiary of Greene, Tweed and is among the world’s leaders in the production of packings—die formed, braided and sheet. "Palmetto", the companies registered trade name for its packing, was chosen in 1892, as the bark on a Palm Tree resembles braided packing.
With more than 130 years of experience of providing innovative solutions to new and demanding problems to a wide variety of industries, Palmetto continues to develop new products that solve the ever changing demands of today’s manufacturing plants. As machinery-operating temperatures soar and pressures and speeds increase, Palmetto continues to develop new packing materials to stay ahead of the changes. Palmetto’s internally-lubricated packing has been used for more than 100 years in demanding applications.
