Parts

Our parts department specializes in used hard to find parts for Hoffman and New Yorker pressing machines. We realize that the machines made today are not the same quality as the machines made years ago. Rather than discard your old machine, repair it. We have a full inventory everything from pedals, springs, linkage pieces, shock absorbers, press bucks, to air cylinders, and valves for older air machines.

Don’t let a mechanic tell you that parts are no longer available. We probably have what you are looking for.

In addition to our used press parts inventory, we also have an extensive inventory of Fulton boiler parts. We have burners, controls, gas trains and other parts. We can build conversion burners to convert your boiler from oil to gas or gas to oil.

Service

Break Downs cost you money - Our in-house service department features factory trained technicians, in stocked-parts vans, covering the tri-state area daily. Since down time costs you money, we do our best to accommodate same day emergency service to get you back up and running quickly. Our vans are stocked with the most common boiler parts for Fulton, Columbia, Lattner, Reimers and Sussman boiler. We also stock parts for most steam presses, Cissell products, and other items such as irons, hoses, valves and traps. In addition to our local service technicians, we have developed a nation-wide network of technicians to help us across the country servicing the equipment we sell.

The best way to avoid an emergency service call, is to schedule a preventative maintenance call. Most boiler manufacturers recommend opening the pressure vessel 2x per year. We make our boiler inspection appointments first call, so you can minimize your down time. We also perform state/insurance inspections with your inspector. At the point of the boiler inspection, our mechanic can also go over your pressing equipment and make any repairs or adjustments while he is there instead of paying a second time to come back for another issue.

"Joe and Company have been an essential resource in getting our business off the ground and growing.  After contacting 10 other plumbing outfits that didn't know 'return from supply' when it came to steam, Joe and his team gave us the most economical pricing and flexibility in completing the job.  We have used them exclusively for our steam and maintenance needs ever since."

"The Company, its Representatives, Services and Equipment are by far the most accommodating I have dealt with in my 42 years in the Alteration Business. When it comes to Expertise, Joe Seickel and his Team of experts are first rate.

Whether you are for purchasing new or rebuilt equipment, purchasing parts or servicing equipment you already have in your business, this is the Company to enlist. Installation is one of the Hallmarks of this Company. In my experience Seickel and Sons has been an excellent partner in the design and installation of all equipment for an Alteration Workroom.

The Service technicians are the finest, reliable, prompt and knowledgeable."

Terry Nahlik

"I have been in the Dry Cleaning business for almost 50 years. Before I found Seickel and Sons, it was always hit or miss when I would need either a piece of equipment or a honest repair. I never completely trusted most companies. They would often send repair men who knew less than I did and I often felt the salesmen were less than honest.

Since finding Seickel and Sons, I have complete confidence. Whether it is a new piece of equipment, a boiler inspection or some repair, they have wonderful mechanics.  They always fix my problems completely. If I need a piece of equipment they have it and are fair in
their pricing.

I only use Seickel and Sons now because I have such confidence in them."

Vick Heard

Flair Cleaners

“Extremely pleased with the quality of service that Seickel & Sons had provided over the years. Always appreciate and delighted by the quality of services, responsiveness and professionalism in business.

Keep up the good work! Thank you so much, and I will be looking forward to an excellent continuing business relationship.
