Rubbermaid History

Rubbermaid was founded as Wooster Rubber by 9 businessmen in 1920 in Wooster, Ohio.  The company originally produced toy balloons.

In 1933, James Caldwell received a patent on his red rubber dustpan design.  This was the first product in the Rubbermaid line.

In 1934, Rubbermaid and Wooster Rubber merged and took the Rubbermaid name.

During World War II, the company ceased making household items and helped with the war efforts.

In 1947, the company introduces a line of automotive products.

In 1955, the company goes public.

In 1999, Rubbermaid and Newell merged to form Newell Rubbermaid.

In 2003, the company headquarters was moved from Wooster, Ohio to Atlanta, Georgia.  Over 1200 jobs were lost at the Ohio plant.

Today, the Newell Rubbermaid umbrella includes a diverse array of companies including Sharpie, Graco and Calphalon.

waning to buy large amounts of Rubbermaid totes for resale how do I get them opening a small store


Kaye Lynn Arenz July 13, 2017 at 11:06 am

I placed an order online for a 40-pc set of Easy Find with lids, SKU 1777169, order #2954349 on June 22nd. As of today, it has still not been shipped and delivered. I called on 7/7 and was told it was “hung up” and I was given case #13721473. When I called back to day, I was told it was expedited and should be received in another week. I am not happy at all, as this was a birthday present and lord knows THAT date has passed by. When I told the customer rep I was not happy, she said sorry and did not offer to make any amends. Trust me – I will not order online from your company again. I would appreciate some renumeration.

Rubbermaid used to make a container that I love and can’t find anywhere. The dimensions are roughly 6″ square by 1½” high. They are perfect for my husband’s lunchbox sandwiches and for storing leftovers. Do you still make them? If not, please, please, please bring them back!!! Thank you.

In April 2017 I purchased a 90 gallon deck box. It is defective. The hinges broke, the sides detached, lid oesn’t fit and the lid straps broke. I went to customer service and am fed up with lip service. They only care about are photos and a series of codes inside. I have told them I can’t find them and above all, I’m confines to a wheel chair and have very limited hand movement. They don’t care. Well I’m fed up. No one stands behind your product. Even if its junk. They won’t even come see what it looks like. Can you help.

I am emailing you to inform you that I have had two spray mops and both have broken. Now, if I had paid ten or twenty dollars I might say the heck with it but I have paid thirty dollars both times and the product is worthless. The last one was a “Reveal”.

I am still in need of a spray mop but I am going to another company and hope I have better luck. Sorry, but I felt you should know.

everythingrubbermaid01 is a seller on Ebay. They collect sales tax from out of state buyers by telling the buyers that they MUST collect sales tax from any state in which they have a “facility”. They are collecting these taxes illegally because everythingrubbermaid01 has ONE retail store in Wooster, Ohio from which it sells Rubbermaid products direct to the consumer at that location, and via internet sales, Ebay sales, etc. (Google “everythingrubbermaid” and you will see what I saw… all roads lead back to this ONE location.)
I just wanted you to know, this business is not legally able to collect out of state sales taxes just because they have “Rubbermaid” in their name, UNLESS they are a “company store” owned by Rubbermaid. If that is the case, please let me know ASAP. Thank you.

Recently had to purchase new sink mats, drainer and drain board. Disappointed in limited color choices. New drain board is flimsy, not sloped enough and does not fit over sink lip so water runs all over counter. It is now in a closet and I’m using the old one, even though it does not match. New silverware basket does not have divider in it. Large open area on one end of dish drainer and coffee cups slip through. Liked old designs much better and they worked well for years!

Maybe at some point you all at Rubbermaid can engineer a sticker for your products that doesn’t leave 10 tons of glue behind and most of the sticker.

We enjoy your coolers!! Would there be any body that could look at my “cooler design “and build me (one) ? We would like Rubbermaid to build this for us!! Please contact email to build the cooler we want. Thank you……….

I just opened a box of 18 piece set of easy find lids7k39 to find that there was only one medium lid in the box. I had been using another of these sets and was missing the same two lids which I jus assumed had been lost when using it to send holiday leftovers with family members but after discovering tuhe same two lids missing in a brand new just opened sealed box I feel that it may have never been packaged with the set. I woul appreciate receiving four replacement lids.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I’m ranting/venting…I purchased a trash can for my kitchen. I thought I was getting a product made in the USA but I was lied to by Wal-Mart because on the website it states MADE IN AMERICA. I received my trash can and it sucked! Rubbermaid made this piece of crap. The lid wouldn’t fit, my husband had to heat up the lid, melt it, and reform it to make it fit the hinge so it would open when I stepped on the lever. RUBBERMAID I EXPECTED MORE FROM YOU. I have been happy with products from your company but this just pissed me off. It wasn’t made in the USA it was designed in the USA and assembled in CHINA.
I even called Rubbermaid customer service and they treated me like crap, their customer service sucks!

To: Mr. William Burke,
Chief Operating Officer

‘ have one of your large outdoor storage sheds which was purchased a few year ago.

Problem is that the Left Side Panel has “warped” or “buckled” and the Left Door hooks that lock with the ports of the Left Side Panel, do not hook upand shut the whole Left Side. As a result there is a three (3) gap from the Top (Roof) Panel to the bottom Floor Panel.

Rats and other vermin are destroying every yard products we store in the Shed.

Could you send us a replacement Left Side Panel and a Left Door.

The Left Side Panel has the Number 046J and the Left Door has the Number 046D.

The shed itself is a huge investment. We paid something life $500. It is a lot more at
Home Depot and at OSH here in West Los Angeles.They will not do a damn thing to
help us. They have pushed us to write to you, the company, to resolve the problem.

Please help.

Thank You Ray Buonadies

I bought a medical kitchen garbage can and I love it. However when I tried to remove the label it left the glue it was stuck on with. I have tried soapy water but didn’t want to use anything else. Could you please tell me how to get this off. I spent $39.00 for a can that I don’t to use. I need help. I have never in many years had any trouble with the many many things I have bought from Rubbermaid.
Please help me.
