OUR PAST

Since 1972, Rubber & Accessories, Inc. (R&A) has been the leading distributor of Hose, Conveyor Belt and Sheet Rubber throughout the Southeastern United States. Two prime locations, excellent customer service, unmatched inventory and outstanding reliability propelled R&A to be THE Hose & Belting Resource. Founders, Harry Robb, Jr. & Buzz Hooper, opened R&A with a 4,500 sq. ft. space in 1972. Both men knew the value of hard work, dedication, and customer service, and were determined that their company, first and foremost, would be known for giving customer’s their moneys worth. When R&A first opened, Mr. Robb & Mr. Hooper ran the company inside and out, from assembling conveyor belts and hoses, to conducting sales. R&A rapidly expanded to over 70,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space within a decade. Customers quickly gravitated to the company’s core values of ETHICS, SERVICE & RELIABILITY. Customers knew when they called R&A, they would be taken care of and that R&A would even go the extra mile to ensure your conveyor belts go on without a hitch, your hoses complete the task they were meant to, and most importantly, that your business stayed fully operational. With exceptional fabrication capabilities, they were able to customize each order and if needed, same-day shipping was available in most instances. An R&A customer deserved the best and could count on the fact that they were offered nothing less. The company and it's team would take the time to learn about you, your business and your equipment, giving every situation full attention to better serve and exceed customer expectations.
