site has been created as a free service for those who worked in the North
British Rubber Company (in 1966 it became Uniroyal Ltd part of Uniroyal
Inc). The Rubber workers made it the place it was with dedication
and skills not seen today. A good example of the skills were the tool and
die makers for extrusions who had it right decades before today’s
technology took over. Sales, Production, and Development Management and
the Financial Controllers worked hard and did their part.
These resourceful people included Directors Rubber Workers, Salesman,
Managers, Chemists, Engineers, Accountants, and many other business
disciplines which are too numerous to list here.
These lucky people are now mainly retired and living in various parts of the
world. It is hoped that this web site will offer a trip down memory lane
and facilitate communication between these people, their friends and
North British Rubber Company formed in 1856 was the first Rubber Company
in Scotland and the Second in the United Kingdom.
