A History of Innovation in the Rubber and Plastics Industry since 1985

Gulf Rubber was founded in 1980 as a trading operation to supply molded rubber components. It soon became clear our customers were searching for more than just rubber – they needed a reliable, long-term partner to provide custom precision solutions and cutting-edge design that sped up production and saved them money.

In 1985, we built a state-of-the-art R&D facility, bringing a culture of innovation, quality, and service to life. For the past 37 years, we have been the single trusted global source for design and manufacturing of precision engineered rubber and plastics components.

Custom Design Capability

Using DFMA (design for manufacture and assembly), we can help duplicate parts, improve existing parts, or develop new ones. In partnership with you, products are developed, tested, and delivered to streamline production and simplify your supply chain, often resulting in lower cost products and quicker delivery time.
