The Company 

Rubbersolutions was founded in 1997 when the South Pacific Tyres company outsourced the supply of rubber based adhesives, tyre paints and spruce. As the quality of the adhesives is critical in manufacture of new tyres and retreads, the new operation had to meet the tyre company's stringent requirements.

In more recent times the company has branched out into other products, including crumb rubber (powder and chips) made from used tyres, and contract filling of adhesives into metal and plastic laminate tubes.
Rubbersolutions are specialists at sourcing bulk rubber requirements.

The people

Steve Matthews and Andrew Melbourne have a combined 65 years of experience in the Rubber and Tyre Business, and between them cover nearly all aspects of  rubber processing and logistics.
