Since our establishment in 1973, our core business has been the processing of rubber and polyurethane materials to produce customer bespoke products such as rubber and polyurethane mouldings, rubber and polyurethane covered rollers, rubber extrusions, rubber fabrications, sheet cut gaskets and rubber linings (see our services).
In addition to our trade work we have developed a range of own brand components that can be found in use in various applications around the world including the agricultural, offshore and transport industries (see our products).
Our long term vision is to be one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of Rubber and Polyurethane components. To achieve this goal we continuously work to acquire and sustain the resources necessary to manufacture bespoke solutions for our customer’s specific requirements. In addition we actively seek to design, develop and manufacture Clifton Rubber branded components that will fulfil our customer’s needs in specific industries.
