• Another Rubber Company Closes

    Buckhorn Rubber closed the doors on their facility in Hannibal, MO at the end of 2017. Buckhorn was purchased by a Chinese company, Zhongding Sealing Parts back in 2009. A large portion of the business Buckhorn was molding has been moved to another Zhongding manufacturing plant, Michigan Rubber Products in Cadillac, MI.

    Custom Rubber Corp. has a history of working with companies who's supply chain is disrupted through plant closures or whose suppliers have a change in philosophy that doesn't align.

    If you are looking for a new, made-in-the-USA source for your molded rubber products - a company that's American owned, contact Custom Rubber Corp. to discuss how we can help. Custom Rubber Corp. has equipment that's compatible with the equipment at both Buckhorn Rubber and at Michigan Rubber Products. Located in Cleveland, OH, Custom Rubber Corp. is logistically convenient to the same customer base that worked with Buckhorn Rubber and is currently working with Michigan Rubber.
