We don’t just manufacture parts. The products we create using our slush molded or dipped rubber processes have helped solve problems throughout the automotive industry. Our winter wiper hoods, steering column seals, gear shift boots and two-shot grommets were all developed in response to challenges our customers brought to us related to quality, performance, time or financial budgets and technical requirements. Our solutions have helped our customers remain competitive in a challenging marketplace. We produce a wide variety of parts for OEM, Tier One automotive suppliers and the automotive aftermarket industry. Midwest Rubber has a global reach – our parts and components are included 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.
