Learn where it all began and see how far Rubber Fab has come in product selection and innovation
Rubber Fab Technologies Group was founded in 1995 by Robert DuPont, Sr. and Patrick Parisi (former owners of Sani-Tech®) in a farm house in Andover, NJ and the hose shop was in a barn on the property. Rubber Fab’s first product that went to market was the Smart Gasket® and the business has been growing ever since!
In 2008, Rubber Fab outgrew the Andover property where we started and searched for a new place to house our growing business, expanding hose shop and massive gasket inventory. We found a suitable building in Sparta, NJ. Now, 8 years later, Rubber Fab has taken over the whole building. We have expanded the business to include an o-ring division, a clean room for product testing, and more room for creating new & innovative products.
April 2016 we became part of the Garlock family of companies in an acquisition with parent company EnPro Industries. Headquartered in Palmyra, NY, The Garlock family of companies is acknowledged as the global leader in high-performance fluid sealing and pipeline protection products for industry and infrastructure.
