The Hygenic Corp.
The Hygenic Corp. focuses on creating efficiencies in its manufacturing process to reduce waste and provide a quick turn-around of its custom-built rubber components. Founded in 1925 by Walter Keith as a manufacturer of vulcanized rubber dentures, the Akron, Ohio-based company has grown today into a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing, sales and marketing of synthetic and natural latex rubber sheeting and tubing.
“Our customers rely on us to understand the properties of rubber and recommend the best solution for them,” Vice President Lisa Koval says. “We don’t make products – we make the components for other company’s products. Because of that, we are really diverse in the markets and industries we serve.”
