The U.S. rubber industry appears to be moving in the right direction, as several companies are expanding their production facilities.
For example, R.T. Vanderbilt Company, a Connecticut firm that distributes chemicals and minerals used primarily in the rubber industry, is currently reorganizing its operations. Crain Communications reports that the company also anticipates it will finish a new $30 million production facility in the summer of 2013.
"These changes…will provide new opportunities for us to demonstrate our commitments to providing unequaled value in our products and services," R.T. Vanderbilt COO Roger Price told the news source.
Goodyear Tire & Rubber is among the companies that could seek more rubber industry professionals to add to its workforce. The Times-Leader notes that Goodyear officials recruited veterans and military spouses during a job fair on January 9, 2013. The event allowed company administrators to evaluate qualified candidates and expand its team.
New hires can help rubber industry companies like Goodyear boost their profits. In fact, these qualified professionals could spark additional interest in the U.S. rubber sector, as more consumers could be attracted to firms that provide consistent, quality support.
