Home About Products & Services

History and Background

Established in 1980, Alaska Rubber and Supply, Inc. moved to its current location in 1981 and in 2006 became 100% employee owned. In December 2009, we opened a branch in Wasilla and also purchased Alaska Rubber and Rigging, Inc. in Fairbanks which gave us expanded capabilities and coverage in the state. All of our locations have the manpower to serve you. There are currently more than 50 full-time employees within the Alaska Rubber Group.

All of our locations are retail and wholesale distributors of hose, fittings and related products and serve markets such as the oil, construction, mining, fishing and also government agencies. Our Wasilla branch includes our Fluid Power Division, with hydraulic component sales and repair. The Fairbanks branch houses the Rigging Division which manufactures and tests custom wire rope assemblies, and supplies all other rigging associated products.

The longevity and experience of our staff is vital in providing the highest level of customer service. We take pride in our work and do our very best to find solutions to problems unique to Alaska’s climate and logistical challenges.

With 44,000 square feet of warehouse space, our Anchorage location has more inventory on hand than any other hose shop in the state. This branch has the ability to crimp all kinds of hose, from 1/8” brake lines to 6” petroleum transfer hoses. The testing department has its own bay dedicated to hydrostatic testing and certification of any hose of any size, from city water pressure to 24,000 PSI water blast hose.
