Since 1941, Kirkhill Inc, has been a prime Manufacturer of rubber plumbing repair parts.
During the 1980's, Kirkhill Inc. began focusing most of its resources on pursuing the
retail plumbing market, at the expense of its wholesale and OEM customers. In July 1996,
several former employees of Kirkhill Inc. formed a new company, Kirkhill Manufacturing
Company ("KMC"), and purchased the rubber products manufacturing division and
equipment of Kirkhill Inc. Kirkhill Inc. remained as a packager and distributor of retail
hardware products until filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on February 21, 1997. There was
never any shared ownership or relationship of any kind between Kirkhill Inc. and KMC,
except both companies shared the name Kirkhill.
Another company has recently purchased the remaining assets of Kirkhill Inc. and at some point may begin selling products under the Kirkhill Inc. name. To avoid any confusion or future conflicts between KMC and Kirkhill Inc., Kirkhill Manufacturing Company plans to formally change its name to KMC Rubber Products. KMC continues to manufacture a full line of plumbing repair parts in our 100,000 sq ft factory located in Downey, California.
The employees of KMC are focusing all our efforts on manufacturing high quality, competitively priced products for the OEM and wholesale markets. Our goal is to re-establish our product brands and reputation as THE primary source for rubber products throughout the industry. We currently supply OEM parts to most major plumbing product manufacturers and are continuing to develop new products for this market. We are committed to providing a high degree of service, on time deliveries, and an above 95% fill rate on wholesale orders. For your convenience, our customer service desk is staffed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST. (9 a.m. - 9 p.m. EST)
