Defence

A trusted partner in the Defence supply chain.

Derby Rubber has built an enviable reputation as a trusted partner for the development and supply of rubber and composite products in a diverse range of applications across land, sea and weapon systems settings. We deliver long-term value for defence projects through careful compound and product design. This is backed by ISO 9001 accredited quality systems and traceability.

Defence operations in Australia and around the globe are frequently undertaken where weather and environmental conditions are amongst the harshest on the planet. Derby Rubber provides essential components of the highest quality to protect people, equipment and infrastructure against those elements. Those components themselves are tough enough to withstand these extreme conditions, over the long-term.

Our uniquely formulated rubber compounds are stable, highly durable, and UV- and oil-resistant. It’s why the defence industry regularly trusts Derby Rubber to help deliver outcomes that meet their needs. Areas such as reliable sound isolation, protection against dust and water ingress, enhanced vibration control, and dependable seals in extreme environmental and military engagement conditions.

We are 100% Australian owned, with strategic commitments to growth and ongoing investment in new technologies, Industry 4.0 and R&D. In addition, our robust local supply chain helps to deliver greater efficiency and reduce wait-times or down-time when components need to be replaced. We regularly work with defence engineers and specialists to develop unique solutions for the myriad of challenges that the industry encounters as new innovations and processes are tested and adopted to meet sovereign capability goals. Being in business for over 55 years means Derby Rubber is the long term supply partner for the defence industry.
