All About AWAB LLC

Formed in 2001, AWAB LLC grew out of Parker Merrick Company, a fastener distributor in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. During the mid 1980s Parker Merrick began the importation and distribution of Swedish all-316-stainless hose clamps after one of the principles was introduced to them at the Hallberg-Rassy plant in Ellös, Sweden. In 1990 the Swedish manufacturers AWAB and ABA merged, and Western Hemisphere production of the AWAB 316SS clamp was moved to Illinois.

AWAB LLC continues to provide the best hose clamps available, to distributors and OEMs, with impeccable service and, in most cases, same-day order shipment. With deep roots in the marine industry and excellent partners in the Industrial MRO field, we look forward to expanding and meeting the challenges of other markets.
