About Red Barn

North West Rubber Ltd., (NWR) was founded in 1968 in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada.

In the late ’60’s and early ’70’s, the company picked up scrap tires and buffings from the local area, ground them up, and manufactured rubber mats. Many of these mats were sold into Equine and Dairy applications.

Initially, we only recycled rubber from British Columbia, but over the years, we grew by expanding our recycling reach into the US and further east in Canada. Today, we are one of the largest rubber mat manufacturers in the world. We recycle rubber from several states and Provinces. We own and operate manufacturing facilities in British Columbia, Ontario and Beijing. We distribute our products all over the world.

We have spent over four decades working alongside our customers to gain a better understanding of their needs, and to figure out how to improve the products that we manufacture for them. Although we have made some mistakes along the way, we have always stood behind what we have sold, and have continually worked to improve our products to ensure that we are delivering the best value possible to our customers.

Today, Red Barn, our Agricultural Product Trademark, has become synonymous with quality and reliability within the Equine, Dairy, and Horse Trailer Industries. We are convinced that our products provide more value for our customers than any other product on the market.

NWR was founded on the principles of hard work, honesty, determination, environmental stewardship, and ensuring that we do everything possible to take care of our customers. And while the business has grown and changed significantly over the years, the core values and principles that we espouse today remain unchanged.
