About Us

75+ Years of Global Rubber and Plastics Design and Manufacturing Excellence

Minnesota Rubber and Plastics is a world leader in the material compound development, engineering design and manufacturing of custom molded elastomeric and thermoplastic components and assemblies. Our global reputation for producing “the tough parts,” is matched by our commitment to quality, product performance and service support.

It is likely you come in contact with our parts in your daily life without even knowing it. From the faucet in your home, transmission in your car or the medical device that may have saved your life, Minnesota Rubber and Plastics provides the critical sealing components to make these products perform the way you expect. We take pride in this everyday.

Let Us Be Your Rubber and Plastics Expert

We have an advantage over many rubber and plastics manufacturers because we place a great deal of emphasis on research and development. Our technical support staff provides the resources to design, formulate, develop and test materials and parts.

What’s more, we are uniquely positioned to offer both rubber and plastic combination parts, including sub-assemblies. This allows us to provide greater development and production efficiencies, thereby reducing development time and minimizing both short and long term costs.

From prototyping to final production, our state-of-the-art design engineering services provide timely answers to difficult design issues. Our CAD/CAM and FEA systems allow us to offer design alternatives quickly and precisely while our tool development and secondary press operations are second to none. Finally, prior to committing to production, our prototyping services provide you with production quality sample parts for final testing.

A Global Network on Your Side

Across our worldwide operations, we demonstrate a commitment to excellence and performance by offering our customers greater value and quality in the products we sell. This commitment is fulfilled by the dedicated work force, including chemists, engineers and supporting technical personnel, working within our R&D centers and manufacturing facilities. Our global resources provide comprehensive service, support and sourcing options.
