Born out of the multifaceted Smith Oil Corporation, founded in the early 1900’s, Smith Industrial Rubber and Plastics as it is known today began as an automotive parts wholesale division of Smith Oil after WWII. Initially selling Goodyear tires, belts, and hoses under the TBA Division moniker, customer demand quickly led to the formation of the Industrial Rubber Products division. Smith Industrial Rubber rapidly became a large distributor of Goodyear Industrial Products to a variety of regional customers.
The Industrial Rubber Products division was acquired by the Dearborn Rubber Corporation in 1976, establishing Smith Industrial Rubber and Plastics, and today is a privately owned company. In the time since its official formation, Smith has remained a leader in the field of industrial rubber fabrication and distribution, serving all markets from farming to aerospace.
We take pride in our products and work hard to provide you a path from manufacture to final hose testing to ensure you get the best possible hoses and fittings.
