Schuyler Rubber, Marine Fender Firm, Receives Recycling Award

Schuyler Rubber Company, Inc., Woodinville, Wash., which custom designs and builds rubber fender products for the marine industry, has received the "Outstanding Achievement in Market Development Award" for the second consecutive year from the Washington Department of Ecology.

The company designs, manufactures and markets marine and industrial laminated rubber products from recycled truck tires. During 1990, Schuyler utilized 4,350,000 pounds of recycled laminated rubber. The Washington-based firm's tendering systems are used aboard vessels ranging from tugs, barges and pushboats to trawlers, supply vessels and workboats. Other applications for Schuyler's laminated rubber fenders include shoreside facilities, such as ports, docks and marinas, and offshore platforms and rigs.

According to owners Greg Armfield and Dennis Kerber, the company's products are economical, durable, and ecologically sound alternative to virgin rubber.

Founded in 1950 by the late Fred Schuyler, Schuyler Rubber continues to expand its product line and customer base in the private and public sectors.
