Rubber for the Agricultural Industry
Our role in the agricultural industry
Agriculture is one of the primary sectors of industry we do business with. The industry alone equates to 28% of the planet’s workforce. This is around 874 million hardworking people involved in delivering 9.4 million tonnes in crop production every year. It’s important to support this industry as we want to help them accomplish their goal in delivering sustenance to the world’s population. We appreciate the sense of urgency that has been developing in this sector courtesy of climate change and we’re fully behind assisting with any sustainable practices.
A large amount of their machinery requires rubber to maintain and protect their equipment. We’ve been supplying the agricultural rubber components to this industry for many years. These products are usually seals, gaskets, extrusions, sheet, strip, matting and a Walker Rubber exclusive, our rollaway bank ladders.
How Walker Rubber can help you
In the global economy, food costs are rising and with this comes increased pressure on agricultural performance. You may need a company to design and produce replacements for existing parts, that may be hard to source or, in some cases, obsolete. We have the experience and expertise as a rubber manufacturer to deliver this.
Agricultural rubber needs to be robust, long lasting, and resistant to dust, contaminants and moisture. Your new or replacement rubber components need to be durable against the harshest conditions, long-term exposure, and stresses.
Our experience shows that we can help you with the ever-evolving sector that is agriculture to help build a brighter future.
