For over 50 years, North West Rubber has operated as a leading manufacturer of recycled rubber flooring solutions throughout North America and globally. With manufacturing facilities in Canada, the United States and China, NWR’s proudly serves the Agriculture, Automotive, Recreational Flooring, Commercial Flooring, Playground, Pet, Construction, Industrial, Traffic Safety, Marine, Solar, Manufacturing, and Landscaping markets with its rubber products.
NWR has been protecting the environment by recycling well over a billion pounds of scrap tire rubber into useful products since 1968. We partner with governments, industry stewardship groups, and other environmentally conscious organizations across North America to reduce the number of scrap tires that are landfilled or incinerated. NWR’s commitment to true Environmental Responsibility even when recycling wasn’t looked at favourably, is what it stands for and will continue to stand for in the years to come.
Founded in a barn rented from the CP Rail company in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada, NWR began using recycled materials to make rubber mats for equine and farming industries. Its innovative, proprietary vulcanization process allows NWR to produce higher quality, more durable and non-porous recycled rubber products than its competitors, most of whom use polyurethane to bind recycled crumb rubber together.
This superior manufacturing process and resulting high-quality, vulcanized recycled rubber has enabled NWR to expand its business into premium flooring solutions designed specifically for the demands of high-traffic, commercial spaces including ice rinks, sports complexes and professional gyms and heavyduty rubber solutions for the automotive sector.
NWR was founded on the principles of hard work, honesty, determination, environmental stewardship, and ensuring that we do everything possible to take care of our customers. And while the business has grown and changed significantly over the years, the core values and principles that we espouse today remain unchanged.
