GRT Rubber Technologies, a manufacturer of engineered rubber products, acquired Valley Rubber, a manufacturer of custom rubber solutions for mining and industrial applications.

GRT manufactures a line of conveyor belt products and primarily sells through distributors, focusing on the aggregate industry. Valley Rubber provides auxiliary components that control transfer points and dust suppression, addressing end user issues and selling directly into the aggregate and mining markets.

“Our team is thrilled to be partnering with a fellow Southern rubber manufacturing company,” says David Brown, CEO of GRT. “Valley Rubber is respected in the industry, and their well-defined culture and operational excellence aligns with our values. Valley’s expertise in the aggregate and mining industries will provide us with more access and material exposure to our current and new markets.”

GRT expects the partnership to allow it to expand its international footprint.

“We could not ask for a better partner than GRT, and our team is excited about the synergies that will be created by combining complementary products and solutions,” says Cronan Connell, CEO of Valley Rubber. “GRT’s involvement in markets like agriculture, where transfer points and dust suppression are crucial, will provide new exposure for our company. Together, we will be stronger to the benefit of our employees, customers, and business partners.”
