About J.J. Short Associates, Inc.

Our company was founded by John, Sr. and his wife Mary Ann Short in 1977, as a manufacturer of custom rubber products. Mr. Short was a graduate of Hobart College majoring in Chemistry and Math. He learned the rubber trade while working for Garlock, Inc. and as a partner in Chamberlin Rubber Company, where he was primarily responsible for developing that company's molded-rubber division. The company's initial focus was to produce specialty molded rubber products, rubber covered rolls and rubber-to-metal and rubber-to-plastic parts for the film processing and graphic arts industries. Mr. Short along with engineers at Eastman Kodak Company, perfected the manufacturing methodology of molding the "soft-touch" spool tire covering the film-bearing portion of processing rollers that facilitate the processing of films with little or no process-attributable damage. With a solid foundation of loyal customers, the Shorts along with a family of hardworking co-workers grew the company throughout the last three decades.

Today we continue in the production of rubber components and products for industries such as communication systems, packaging, electronics manufacturing services (EMS), graphic art and print equipment, furniture manufacturing, food processing, beverage, and medical equipment to name a few.
