The Anton Family incorporated Rahco Rubber as a molder of miniature, high precision rubber components for phonograph needles and cartridge assemblies in 1972. Since then, we’ve outgrown our modest 5,000 square foot facility and expanded into a modern 60,000 square foot space in Des Plaines, IL just minutes from O’Hare Airport. While we are proud of the way our company has evolved over the past 50 years, we recognize that our success would not have been possible had it not been for the strength of our customer relationships and a healthy obsession with delivering best in class quality products. For a closer look at Rahco, please enjoy the video below.
