A bit of History. A Rubber Products Maker (includes TENNIS AND SQUASH BALLS) before World War 2 when
ball making ceased . War work taking over. 1947 saw J Price developing antivibration units (PD mounts)for the Admiralty (Navy),(MOD), for ships
engines,compressors and generators.
These rubber units are still produced by us, and other manufacturers. Used throughout NATO and by ship builders,machine makers and others.
Early 1900's, Joseph Price,starting working life as an engineer moved to the John Bull rubber company on
development of rubber tyres, which were in their infancy.
Later moving to Firestone’s tyre factory.
Meeting an owner of a rubber company, he was persuaded to
run a factory in Box,Wiltshire, developing tyres,tennis balls,squash balls and rubber products.
1939,war time....ball production ceased, switching to making, tyres and rubber components for armoured vehicles, tanks etc.
In 1947 he registered J Price(Bath), later absorbing
the Box business that had ran into difficulties.
Derek, his son, joined the business in 1947 and still developing balls and other rubber products.
Derek’s daughter Louise joined the company over 10 years ago and has been taking over the running of the business. Together they have built and moved into a new factory to take Price into the next 100 years! Exciting times!
