History

Established in 1965, Australian Rubber & Plastics is an Australian owned and operated company. Originally trading as Rubber Auto Supplies from a small factory in Sydney's inner west, this small family business was solely committed to compression moulding of rubber components for the automotive aftermarket. This business has grown considerably and forms part of the much larger ARP Group of companies.
