VANCOUVER, June 8, 2018 /CNW/ – North West Rubber Ltd, a leading manufacturer and distributor of recycled rubber solutions in North America, is pleased to announce that it will be opening a recycled rubber mat manufacturing facility in Houston, Texas in 2019. “There are several factors which drew us to the south-central US: it gives us the ability to better serve our customers in geographic proximity to this location, it allows us to develop new markets that we have not serviced in the past, and it mitigates some of the risks associated with changing regulations in the Ontario market where we operate another one of our facilities. This is an exciting new chapter in our company’s 50 year story!” said President & Chief Executive Officer, Leighton Friesen. The company will not announce the level of output or number of jobs which will be created until it has fully assessed the changing dynamics in the other markets in which it operates.
