new structure of finished goods division
Coldwater, Ohio (October 18, 2019) – DRI RUBBER, the global leader in reprocessed rubber compounds and the number one producer of Fiber-reinforced Rubber Compounds (FRC®), proudly announces that they have acquired LRP SOLUTIONS (aka Linear Rubber Products), a company specializing in manufacturing and selling Agricultural Matting for animal comfort.
The purchase of LRP SOLUTIONS, currently based in Kenosha, WI, further impacts DRI RUBBER’s focus on improving the rubber industry’s environmental footprint by expanding their sustainable, finished rubber goods division. The combination of LRP SOLUTIONS’ expertise in the matting world, aligned with DRI RUBBER’s extensive technical knowledge will provide improved quality and performance to customers. DRI RUBBER can integrate their fiber-reinforcement technology and materials (FRC®), while uniting the portfolios from both companies to offer a wider scope of products to the commercial, industrial, and agricultural markets. Currently they offer the largest molded mats for equine use, durable slat mats with a patent-pending fastening system, and a variety of commercial and industrial matting solutions.
DRI RUBBER will leverage LRP SOLUTIONS’ existing brand identity and website, as part of their newly restructured finished goods division. DRI RUBBER is in the process of unifying their website and product offering with LRP SOLUTIONS current catalog. While the transition will take place over the next several months, clients will continue to receive the same high-quality products and service which they have come to expect. In other words, both DRI RUBBER and LRP SOLUTIONS have embraced the mantra of “business as usual”.
LRP SOLUTIONS, which will continue to operate under that name, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of DRI RUBBER USA. Effective November 1, 2019, all business will be consolidated to DRI RUBBER’s USA Division in Coldwater, OH.
