Rubber Solutions for the Automotive Industry
For more than 60 years, Midwest Rubber has been the preeminent supplier of high-quality automotive parts.
Being based in Michigan for six decades, Midwest Rubber has a lot of knowledge about the automotive world. We know that satisfying our customers means holding ourselves to a superior standard and delivering nothing less than the highest quality in our components for cars and trucks. Recently receiving the IATF certification affirms that our work meets a global standard.
Our lineup of products includes automotive rubber seals, wiper hoods, steering column seals, gear shift boots and two-shot grommets. These were all developed in response to needs that our customers brought to us after encountering obstacles in quality, performance, and the restraints of budget and technology. At Midwest Rubber, our work goes beyond just manufacturing parts: we create solutions that empower our clients and we see things through to the end to ensure complete satisfaction.
To meet the wide range of needs that our customers present, we employ a number of methods, like our slush molded and dipped rubber processes. These flexible techniques allow us to create individualized products that meet our clients’ specific needs. Today, our parts and components can be found in vehicles made by Ford Motor Company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and General Motors.Contact Us
Cable Grommet >
Our two-shot grommets are competitively priced, but more importantly, they also deliver on quality, performance and technical requirements. Most manufacturers can’t promise that.
Gear Shift Boots >
We created a shift boot with the beautiful look and durable performance of leather, but not the hefty price tag. In fact, our material was proven to perform better than leather, and we saved our customer $1 million during the first year of production.
Leg Rest >
Through careful analysis, our engineering team identified what was causing pieces of our customer's product to fail in the field, and created a solution to get the product back on track.
Steering Column Seals >
Our engineering team developed an adaptable seal that was able to meet increasingly stringent assembly requirements and helped our customer remain competitive in an ever-changing environment.
Vibration Isolators >
We developed a customized, permanent rubber bonding process to lessen vibration, reducing stress on important equipment. Our customer was satisfied with the solution, and it has been used across many types of machinery.
