Rubberlite, Inc. is a recognized leader in the manufacturing of custom engineered polyurethane foam and is one of North America´s largest converters of cellular rubber and plastic products. A privately owned company founded in 1986, Rubberlite serves a diverse market that includes footwear, medical, industrial, orthopedic, automotive, electronics and aerospace industries.

As the economic climate continues to evolve, Rubberlite remains consistent in its aggressive pursuit of continuous improvement by allocating resources to training and product processing. As a result, funds from the Governor’s Guaranteed Work Force Program have provided Rubberlite the opportunity to train technical employees responsible for qualifying a new lamination line, as well as develop the Enterprise Resource Planning software training program to extend its service capabilities.

With funding from the Governor’s Guaranteed Work Force Program, Rubberlite expedited the qualification process of a state-of-the-art lamination line and has since introduced new products with improved lead times and quality assurance. The financial assistance also was vital in the creation of a structured team-based initiative, which resulted in customized programming of the company’s business-process management software system, as well as the development of a formal internal training program.
“Rubberlite is extremely pleased with the partnership we have developed with WorkForce West Virginia and the staff of the Governor’s Guaranteed Work Force Program. Resources such as these allow Rubberlite and other companies in West Virginia a competitive advantage in today’s global economy.”
