Industrial Rubber Ltd is an independent company based in the South of England with a purpose built modern facility and has been operating in this market since 1975.
The Company operates in two distinct market sectors.
A leading independent UK component manufacturer of Rubber / Sponge Mouldings, specialising in Custom Moulding using injection, compression and transfer compression.
A market leader in the Road Marking industry, manufacturing and marketing its Light Dome road stud and ancillaries. Light Dome manufactures a depressible rubber road stud supplied with the base.
Currently over 80 employees.
Able to produce items from 1 gram to 20 kilos in weight from any rubber polymer, using any one of our comprehesive range of presses, many of which are injection, compression and compression vacuum presses.
In addition, developments include partnerships with Chinese companies to substantially reduce costs as well as maintain high quality and deliveries.
The Company operates in an environment where quality of product, competitiveness and service levels are all-important.
It is ISO 9001 approved and offers FMEA and SPC facilities.
The company can best be described as operating in a very large jobbing environment rather than a component manufacturer in limited market sections. However, a certain amount of our business is geared towards the high-volume automotive and white goods markets and where Just-In-Time is a cornerstone of those industries.
Flexibility in market sectors provides the Company with a great deal of resilience to the highs and lows of any one market, allowing customers to benefit from the broad range of technical solutions.
We look to enter a supply partnership with our customers geared towards providing design (product and tooling), along with material compound specifications and other considerations such as cost-down objectives. There is a team of technicians specifically briefed with these objectives in mind.
We understand the importance of levels of response in all aspects. Late deliveries can result in, at worse, to down-stream production disruption at a customer plant, and at best, to excessive inventory levels. Either way, we would not retain our broad customer base very long if we were not committed to a high level of delivery and service.
We have worked hard at reducing lead times in the knowledge that this reduces inventory levels. We have a dedicated Customer Support Team and every customer is given a specific contact person. That person responsible for the interests of the customer within Industrial Rubber Ltd.
