Stant has announced a yearlong celebration of 120 years of excellence and innovation.

“Throughout the coming year, Stant Corporation will proudly celebrate 120 years of providing best-to-market products to our valued customers,” said Gary Masse, the company’s CEO. “As we mark this major milestone, we not only honor the accomplishments of the past, but renew our focus on the future with a continued commitment to leadership and innovation.”

Founded in 1898 in Connersville, IN, the George Stant Machine Works Company quickly gained a reputation in the emerging automotive industry for quality engine repair.

Following World War I, Stant Machine Company Inc. began designing and manufacturing auto parts, including the two-piece radiator cap. This unique product innovation ensured proper alignment of the radiator ornament and the external motor-meter temperature gauge. By the 1910s, Stant had also become a leading supplier of high quality hood ornaments. Today, Stant Corporation has evolved into the foremost global supplier of vapor management systems, fuel delivery systems, thermal management systems, and engineering services, and holds over 150 patents for technology and innovation.
