Our Story, Envirotech's History

Envirotech Extrusion, Inc., located in Richmond, Indiana, is an industry leader in the field of recycled extruded thermoplastic rubber. Since incorporating in October 1995, Envirotech has turned over 30,000,000 lbs. of recycled tire rubber into sheet products that are being used in many applications from automotive parts to dairy aisle runners to fitness equipment mats …..the list goes on and on!


At the time of incorporation in 1995, Envirotech Extrusion leased the building and two extruders from the former owner, saving jobs for 30 employees and supplying mud flaps and horse trailer wall liner to two loyal customers. In 1997, the Energy & Recycling Office (ERO) of the Indiana Department of Commerce (IDOC) granted us a $500,000 interest-free loan through the Recycling Market Development Program. This loan made it possible to purchase the equipment that had previously been leased and covered the expense of upgrading the equipment. Then, in 2000, the Recycling Promotion and Assistance Fund (RPAF) Loan granted another loan of a half-million dollars for the addition of a 20,000 square foot building and installation of two more extrusion lines.





In the intervening years, many new customers and applications have been added. With a well-trained and dedicated group of employees, a loyal customer base and dependable vendors, we have enjoyed steady growth every year. The successes Envirotech Extrusion, Inc. has achieved have been built on the combination of a quality product at a fair and reasonable price delivered on-time with prompt and courteous customer service.
