Rubbermaid was founded in the year 1920. The company has been operational for almost 99 years now. The former name of the company was Wooster Rubber Company. The company’s original main aim was to manufacture toy balloons. In the year 1933, James R Caldwell along with his wife had received a patent for the blue rubber dustpan, and therefore the company’s line of rubber kitchen products was then named as Rubbermaid. A year later, a person named Horatio Ebert identified Rubbermaid products at a departmental store and therefore believed that the products could very much help the struggling company, that was Wooster Rubber. The same year, the company merged with Rubbermaid and named the two companies like the Wooster Company. The new group started to manufacture new kitchen products under the brand name Rubbermaid.
During WWII, in the year 1942, the company's household business was almost eliminated, but still, the company was able to convert itself to military manufacturing. The company also started to make automotive accessories as well, beginning in the year 1947. In the year 1955, the company offered its first IPO or Initial Public Offering and converted itself to a limited public entity as well. Then in the year 1957, the company had changed its name to Rubbermaid as well. In the year 1981, the company had taken over Con-Tact plastic coverings. In the year 1999, the company was acquired by Newell for about $6 billion. The name of the company was then changed to Newell Rubbermaid. The company also moved out of Wooster in the year 2003 and settled in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Eight hundred fifty manufacturing jobs were eliminated, and even around more than 400 office jobs were shifted to other locations as well. The company had become a part of the Newell Brands, after the company was taken over by Jarden, via an amalgamation. The headquarters of the company is based in 3 Glenlake Parkway. The name of the place is Atlanta, while the name of the state is Georgia, USA. The pin code of the area is 30328.
