New Management for 4D Rubber

7th May 2015

New Management for 4D Rubber


Four D Rubber Company has been sold to a management team lead by experienced entrepreneur and rubber industry expert, Richard Gogerty. The deal was supported by funding from Santander’s Breakthrough Programme and Finance Birmingham.

Four D was formed in 1964 and has a proprietary process for the continuous casting of high specification latex sheeting. This has many applications but in recent years, the business has become a leader in its chosen markets of health, dental and medical, fashion and industrial. There is further exciting potential in these sectors going forward.

The business has a global customer base with over half of sales for export customers. It has production facilities both in the UK and at its Sri Lankan subsidiary, Quality Latex Products Ltd with around 115 employees across the two locations. Further jobs are expected to be created in the Midlands as the business grows.

The management team going forward will consist of Richard Gogerty, the new Managing Director, along with existing Technical Director John Britton and Financial Director Asher Lambert.

“Four D is an exceptional business with products and capabilities that are virtually unique. We have seen good international growth in demand for our materials in recent years, particularly from health and medical customers. Our aim is to continue and accelerate this growth with the right focus.”- Richard Gogerty CEO
