Past

Castle Mill Works was the headquarters of the North British Rubber Company, once the city’s largest industrial operation and a major rubber goods producer within the British Empire.

From the start, the North British Rubber Company had a reputation for design and innovation as well as manufacturing.

From hot water bottles to air balloon fabric, the North British Rubber Company’s diverse range of products was exported worldwide.

The North British Rubber Company was more than a business, ‘the Rubber’ was a way of life for many of its workers who lived locally.
