While others do it all, we put our all into one thing.
At Hastings Manufacturing, we’ve mastered the engineering and craftsmanship of piston rings for engines. We don’t manufacture other engine components for a reason—it would only take our attention away from what we do best.
Decade after decade, we’ve refined and advanced piston ring design. The result is 25,000 SKUs made to deliver longer-lasting performance, better economy, and unsurpassed confidence.
Service You Can Count On.
Being focused on piston rings alone helps us understand our product better—and it also helps us understand our customers better. Our engineers can recommend one of the over 15,000 existing ring designs currently manufactured, many of them for diesel applications. We also offer superior tech support, attentive bilingual customer service, and online ordering—all backed by an award-winning inventory management system that ensures timely and reliable delivery across Europe.
