“I needed a rubber and gasket company that was reliable and provided quick service, and my work contacts throughout Hampton Roads recommended Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket (CBRG) in Norfolk.

 

“We count on them for hoses, flanges, gaskets, and custom water jet needs.

 

“Having a rubber and gasket company like CBRG as an ally means my company can count on quality items in a timely manner so we can get our jobs done right the first time!

 

“Our clients benefit because having little to no delay in getting our parts from CBRG speeds up our job cycle which enhances productivity and prevents delays.  CBRG is an immense help to us, as most of our customers need their job done ‘yesterday.’

 

“The best quality about the Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket company is the ‘can do’ willingness of everyone in their facility to provide quality parts and service.

 

“Their contribution plays an important part in our success.”

“I called my gasket supplier near Richmond with a high priority need for a heat exchanger head gasket and did not hear back from them.  Nothing!    I was under tremendous pressure from our plant manager to have the heat exchanger back on line ASAP.

 

“I found Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket (CBR&G) in the Yellow Pages and called them. Within two hours, Geoff Long came out to the plant site, took all the measurements for very difficult gaskets to manufacture, and had them delivered faster than our previous supplier.”

“They are now the gasket company for all my gasket needs plus chemical, steam and stainless steel braided hoses and their hardware up to 1500psi.  Their top-notch water jet cutting operation means I have little to no waiting times for the hundreds of hose coupling gaskets I need.

 

“Geoff often visits our site to recommend new products and in-house innovations that may benefit our plant.

 

“Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket is and has been a dedicated service to our many needs, which helps our plant in quick turnaround gasket and hose problem solutions. Their experience and commitment to professionalism keeps my plant coming back for their services.”

"Thirty-three years ago I started working with Capital Concrete in Norfolk.  We were using Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket then, and we are still using them today.

 

"They are supportive, knowledgeable and satisfy all our needs when it comes to conveyor belts, fittings, gaskets, hopper boots, chute boots, hoses and more.

 

"They have never given us a reason to go elsewhere for our rubber and gasket needs.  And, all of their employees are great people to work with."

"I wish to personally thank Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket for helping us with a last minute holiday weekend job request to fabricate two gaskets.  We realized on Saturday that we had the incorrect gaskets as our Technical Representative was putting the rudder seals together at BAE. 

 

"I called Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket and they responded without hesitation.  Geoff Long said ‘he would find a way to support us,’ as he understood the importance of our project.  Even though Geoff was attending a wedding that Saturday, he went to the shop and cut the gaskets, which were very large -- in excess of 47 inches -- and took a fair amount of time to complete.

 

"With Geoff’s help, our job suffered only a minor delay.  Such a problem could easily put our great OEM reputation in jeopardy, but Geoff was able to help us keep that intact.

 

"The Wartsila Team really appreciates the efforts of Chesapeake Bay Rubber & Gasket and their ‘Above and Beyond’ performance!  Geoff’s efforts put your company well beyond any of your competitors’ ability to support in time of crisis!  And, to have a company open doors on a Saturday at the start of a three-day weekend is remarkable."

“Chesapeake Bay Rubber and Gasket (CBRG) earned our trust long ago and continue to have it today due to the quality and workmanship of all fabricated items, as well as the material they have on hand and immediately available.  They have been a long-standing vendor for our company. 

 

“The quality of their materials is top-notch, and they QC all fabricated materials being shipped/delivered therefore eliminating non-conformance issues.
