Rubber Heart Spring 2023 News

11 Mar 2023

Can you believe it? Rubber Heart is now three years old!

It feels like a very long time ago that we first visited Southern Manufacturing in Farnborough where in 2020, we made our first tentative steps into our new venture as Rubber Heart. That’s where we would meet the amazing team at AMI Marketing for Manufacturing, who not only became our website and SEO partner but also fast friends, and we were delighted to catch up with them again at this year’s show last month.

Since then, we’ve experienced our fair share of ups and downs, like everyone else in the world. But through it all, we’ve kept our heads down and continued to work hard, building our client base and forming new relationships (albeit mostly through Teams calls!). Even after so many years in the rubber industry, it has still been truly inspiring to be reminded of just how many talented, passionate and dedicated people choose to be part of it, constantly pushing the limits of rubber science and technology to make better performing and more sustainable elastomer materials and products.

As we celebrate this milestone for Rubber Heart, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported and encouraged us along the way. Your belief in us has kept us motivated to keep dreaming, thinking, and talking about all things rubber, so we can continue to provide the best possible services to our amazing partners and clients around the world!

Now Spring is here in the UK (even though it’s snowing outside!), we’re excited to announce that we’ll be attending several industry events over the next few months. We can’t wait to catch up with old friends and make new ones so be sure to check out what’s in store and join us for a rubber-filled adventure!
