Genuinely caring for customers for more than a century
In 1892, William A. Vail had an idea for a company. He began by producing rubber railroad ties and horseshoes in Chicago, Illinois. As times changed, his entrepreneurial dream evolved into one of the most respected roll cover manufacturers in America. Today Vail Rubber Works operates from three locations: two in St. Joseph, Michigan - our Langley headquarters and the M-139 Surface Technology Center that specializes in HVOF coatings. There is also a Vail service center in Axis, Alabama. Each location solves the toughest roll cover problems with innovation, attention to detail and genuine concern for your success. That's how our previous generations did business. That's the legacy we continue to pass on.
