How It All Started

In 1947, a For Sale ad caught Sid Furth’s eye of a business for sale that distributed rubber goods and hoses. Being the shrewd business man he was, Sid snapped it up and opened the company as Durable Rubber Products. As the company grew, it got away from its roots of cutting rubber hoses to length and reselling them. Customers started asking for these rubber products with glue on them. From there the concept of Twin Stick was born. .

With his and his partner Tom Zyck’s vision the company grew. Since rubber hosing was no longer a part of the product offering it was time for a name change. Since they didn’t want to lose all name recognition of Durable Rubber Products, the new name of Duraco was adopted in 1977. The company then grew and began expanding its customer base, becoming a leader in the Appliance and Point-Of-Purchase markets. New Products, such as film tapes, were introduced and Duraco grew even faster.

This success led to the sale from the Furth Family to Filtrona (Essentra) in 2007. From there the company expanded even further, expanding it’s reach internationally. Then in 2019, it’s continued success led to OpenGate Capital purchasing the company and returning it to it’s proper name of Duraco.
