about eco rubber

Mission Statement

“Eco Rubber’s mission is to manufacture, apply and distribute waterproofing products and services of the highest quality, technologically advanced and environmentally friendly, backed by superior client service and respect for all people we work with.”

Vision Statement

Eco Rubber™ strives to be the leader in, and preferred supplier of eco-friendly waterproofing solutions, with no compromise on either quality or services

introduction

Eco Rubber™ is an established, proudly South African, waterproofing manufacturer with its origins firmly rooted in the rugged Eastern Cape. Imported European products proved ineffective in harsh African conditions and the need for a product specifically developed for the rigorous climate was identified.

Eco Rubber™ accepted the challenge and meticulously developed a resilient brand of waterproofing that far exceeded the demands of the regional environment. A home-grown product range durable enough to withstand local and international requirements. The particular issues of durability, ease of application, flexibility, surface coverage and environmental friendliness were all successfully addressed and the Eco Rubber™ waterproofing product range was launched.

Our initial focus soon shifted from application to retail as the product proved itself and demand for our revolutionary waterproofing grew. Eco Rubber™ DIY Kits, introduced to the trade in 2016, are now available in more than 300 retail outlets nationwide. The company’s planned expansion continued with the introduction of over 40 national Agencies and 2 international representatives to date.

Commitment to our core values and vision, hard work and dedication has resulted in the substantial growth of Eco Rubber™. Increased production output at the manufacturing plant in Port Elizabeth required a larger factory and an increased compliment of agents, retailers and personnel meant a recent move to bigger premises for the Head Office in Jeffreys Bay.
