Hastings Manufacturing was born into the automotive industry in 1915. By 1923 our focus became dedicated to the design and manufacture of piston rings. In 1956 we invented the Flex-Vent® oil control ring, which quickly became the international standard for most engine applications, and was made famous in the aftermarket by our legendary “Tough Guy” character. In the 1980s the Flex-Vent oil control ring became the choice of OEMs worldwide and is still specified in today’s engines. Not to be satisfied with dominating oil ring technology, Hastings offers the broadest selection of steel and cast iron compression rings in the marketplace. Today, with plans in place to improve upon our products and manufacturing efficiencies, the future looks even brighter for Hastings and our customers.
