Triangle Rubber Plant

The Triangle Rubber Company opened the Russo-American Rubber Plant on the Obvodny Canal (1860). Until the end of the nineteenth century, the plant had a monopoly on rubber production in Russia. In the late nineteenth century, it became the world’s largest producer of rubber products. The factory was renamed the Triangle Rubber Plant (1908), State Rubber Plant No. 1 (1918) and Red Triangle Plant (1922). It developed ways to produce synthetic India rubber (1932) and pressurised rubber processing (1938). Products ranging from wellington boots to high-altitude cameras were sold in seventy-three towns in Russia and abroad.
