It all began in 1947 when a young man name Sid Furth stumbled upon a ‘For Sale’ advertisement for a local business that distributed rubber goods and hoses. Being an insightful businessman, he thought about how to capitalize on the opportunity by building the current product offering. Furth fulfilled his vision by making the purchase and called his new company, Durable Rubber Products. As business picked up and the company began to grow it started to get away from its roots of distributing rubber good products and began cutting rubber hoses to desired lengths to sell. Soon after his customers began asking if he could place a glue on the rubber products so they could adhere the rubber pieces to different applications. Listening to the voice of his customers and fulfilling their needs was top priority. He took his customers request into consideration and soon began working on the development of what is known as the famous Twin Stick® today.
