Weir Linatex® and Midwest Rubber

Weir Linatex® + MWR = Stronger Together

How did Midwest Rubber become a dedicated partner for Linatex squeegees?

In 1978, Midwest Rubber's Founder, Chuck Anderson, was fascinated by the abrasion-resistant Linatex material his conveyor belt customers were using in tough environments. Recognizing its potential as a superior squeegee material for floor scrubbers, Anderson partnered with *Linatex Co., who was seeking diversification beyond mining. Together, they developed a squeegee using Linatex® rubber and conducted extensive field testing. The material's durability, tear resistance, and exceptional water pick-up impressed everyone involved. Today, Linatex remains renowned as the top choice for squeegees in the floorcare industry.

Weir Mineral's Linatex has been a great partner to Midwest Rubber for over 45 years. Our strong relationship and success in the floorcare industry is truly a testament to mutual trust, innovation, and a shared vision. We look forward to many more."
