ProSeal: Helping Industry Succeed Since 1987

At Pro-Seal, we believe in American industry. We’ve been supporting that industry since 1987, when we first took off as a fluid sealing distributor for some of the hardest working men and machines in the Midwest. Since then, we’ve expanded our product offerings and our operating areas from our Michigan beginnings to cover the Great Lakes Region, all of Alaska and just about everywhere in between. Now, we’re a one-stop shop for pumping systems, mechanical seals, industrial lubricants, and engineered solutions.

More than anything, we pride ourselves on the collective 200 years our hands-on team brings to each and every solution, big or small. We pay the same attention to bead blasting a cartridge seal as we do to purposefully designing, building, and installing environmental control systems for mechanical seals. We delight in matching customers with perfect prefab pumping systems, training personnel, and consulting with new industrial partners on the right equipment for the right job. Ultimately, we love watching industries rise, make, succeed, and thrive with as much or as little of our help as they require. So, how can ProSeal help you today? Give us a call and let’s find out together.

Robert Schmitt

Pump Sales and Service Managing Director

Rob joined ProSeal in September of 2003 and launched ProSeal’s pump sales and service department with the goal of becoming the region’s top distributor of pumps and most capable pump and rotating equipment repair center.

Rob’s career began as a floor sweep at a municipal pump repair shop in Pontiac, MI in 1985. He has held nearly every position that exists in an industrial distribution and repair company including machinist, mechanic, field service technician, project manager and finally sales and management.

In 1995, Rob moved into industrial and commercial pump sales as a Division Manager for a very large, multi-disciplined industrial distribution company in Livonia, MI. His group grew sales more than seven fold during the first four years, eventually employing 10 people in sales and service. Rob was recognized with a “Salesman of the Year” award from one of his principal manufacturers. A dedication to both sales and service remained a hallmark of his organization.

In 2003, Mr. Schmitt reconnected with long-time business associate Bruce McCartney to create the most comprehensive pump and seal repair facility in the region. Rob’s primary area of responsibility is oversight of the pump distribution and service efforts at ProSeal Service Group in the Midwest and Alaska. This is accomplished through direct contact with the customers along with networking through the other ProSeal salesman.

Rob has dedicated his entire professional life to pumps and rotating equipment. He attended Oakland Community College in the business management program with additional classes in electrical and mechanical engineering. Rob has held numerous positions on distributor councils and continues to attend trainings to stay current on industry developments.
