Rubbernek has been supplying Fluid Power Fittings to OEM’s globally for over 50 years, the amassed experienced gained over this time is invaluable to our customers and has been recognised by Cummins with this awarded status.

Congratulation to Phil Grindrod who has recently retired from RFL after long service manufacturing our hydraulic and fluid power fittings.

Below is a photo of Phil on his last day stood in front of one of our new Ø52mm capacity sliding head machines.

Phil's planned retirement prompted the recruitment in 2015 of another apprentice to strengthen the Rubbernek team and to ensure the continuity of skills transfer.

Phil's knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed.

Good luck in your retirement Phil from all at Rubbernek Fittings Ltd!


Rubbernek are pleased to announce the signing of significant investment deal to purchase six new CNC turning centres to include additional 52mm capacity sliding head lathes.

Multiple axis sub-spindle manufacturing allows one hit machining with benefits of improved quality, reduced set up time, shorted lead times and competitively prices products. These machines will be used to manufacture complex non-standard hydraulic fittings and fluid power adaptors in one operation and set up.

For more information on what these machines can do you for you please contact our sales team.
