INDIANAPOLIS—JB Enterprises Parts Detailing L.L.C., which provides custom adhesive coatings services for rubber and metal bonding applications, has joined the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers.
The Elyria, Ohio-based company specializes in the small- to medium-volume range markets and serves a wide number of sectors within the rubber industry, the ARPM said.
JB Enterprises, founded in 2009, has a staff with 15 years of experience in the rubber molding industry. Its water-based adhesives and custom coatings for rubber molders provide an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional solvent-based products, the firm said.
Owner Jeremy Belshaw said he knows ARPM President Charlie Braun and Executive Director Troy Nix, as well as other individuals and companies that are members of the association. "I tend to stick with who I know," he said.
Belshaw said the networking opportunities, company tours and benchmarking activities are among the services that make membership in the organization valuable.
The ARPM, made up of manufacturers and suppliers in the non-tire rubber industry, has been operating since 2010. It has more than 40 member companies.
