A brief History of Cascade Rubber Products

We became a manufacturer to fill a niche in molding custom rubber irrigation gaskets in the mid 1970's. Within a few years, we became involved with working with Nike (BRS sports at the time) to produce outsoles for their high end running shoes.

We continued to diversify our customer base and began working with a large microwave tower manufacturer to produce a rubber guide cushion and boot using a specialized material that could withstand 30+ years of exposure to heat, cold and UV while still performing to the original specifications.

We also became the sole rubber manufacturer for the worlds largest lift truck attachment manufacturer where we have vulcanized a quality NR to over 200,000 large aluminum plates over the past 30 years.

In the mid 1980's, we became an important rubber manufacturer to a large local foundry that provides 100,000's of critical locking pins to the construction, mining and dredging industries. We have been a certified single source supplier to them since 1994.

We also supply rubber vulcanized parts to valve industries, food handling component industries, hiking boot companies, sound control systems and many more.

Cascade Rubber - Quality Policy

We partner with our customers to conform to the quality programs and standards they request. We offer 100% inspection if necessary and a 1 year warranty if appropriate. In the vary rare case of a field reject, we replace the part and perform a complete Root Cause and Corrective Action analysis so that this issue is not repeated.

With respect to pricing, we have a mix of large presses that ensures we can offer the most competitive pricing.

Customer Testimonials


I would like to personally thank you and your team for the extraordinary effort put forth to allow us to ship an order of 25 carton clamps on a very short turn around. Our customer made a mistake in the specification of their order and, as a result, we were building the wrong configuration. As always, Cascade Rubber was prepared to meet the challenge. You should be very proud of the level of commitment within your organization to satisfy customers. We value the partnership that has developed over the years and look forward to continued success together in the future.

Thanks Again,
Tim Nagel, Plant Manager, Cascade Corporation - Portland, OR
