Rubberlite expands capacity for cellular rubber conversion

Huntington, WV – Rubberlite, Inc. has added a new multi-purpose building to the Huntington, West Virginia campus, expanding the total footprint of the organization in West Virginia to nearly 500,000 square feet. The new facility will provide additional capacity for the conversion of cellular rubber and plastic products and the manufacture of custom-engineered polyurethane foams.
“Our organization has experienced tremendous growth since our launch in 1986. We continually review our operations, processes and technologies. This addition will allow us to not only increase capacity but also improve quality and offer a broader range of products and services to our customer base,” said Brad Mayo, President of Rubberlite, Inc.
The new 52,000-square-foot facility will initially house new technologies and equipment purposefully designed to streamline material flow and increase manufacturing efficiencies of the company’s diverse product lines. With the addition of the new facility, Rubberlite’s campus now encompasses nearly 500,000 square feet spread over an entire city block in downtown Huntington, West Virginia.
The construction project was led by Riedel-Wilks Building Structures, Inc., a local firm that specializes in commercial and light industrial building projects. “We have partnered with Riedel-Wilks on many projects and find that their vision for quality reflects ours. The fact that they are local is a true benefit for us and our region. We are proud to invest in our community and its people,” said Mayo.
