Our history ...

Founded in a small village between West Sussex and Hampshire, from where its name derived, SBR has been prominent in the manufacture of industrial rubber since the 1970s.

After a move to Waterlooville, Hampshire in 1995, we have registered and built lasting relationships with key customers.  We have become a trusted partner to global and British aerospace, MoD, DoD and the healthcare market among other industry sectors.

Since 2016, we have been part of The West Group Ltd (TWG). TWG are a privately owned company specialising in the design and supply of fluid components to medical and scientific markets.  The acquisition of Southbourne Rubber sets it in good stead to continue as a major contributor to these supply chains.

Our history is very much part of our present helping to form our development as a company.  We have grown significantly over recent years and our production capability has developed.

Industry recognised quality ...

SBR hold the highest certification including AS9100D.  This standard is required by the aerospace industry to satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements.

The quality of our products and services is at the forefront of our business, manufacturing processes, materials and team.  As such we have achieved standards to meet the demands of the customers and markets we supply.  This pivotal area of our business is continually reviewed to ensure we meet the requirements of our ever-growing customer base.

Commercial realities often demand more is delivered for less.  Trading pressures dictate completion times are kept to a minimum.  SBR will deliver enterprise and expertise without compromising quality.
