As a brand, Rubbermaid began in the 1920s under the name Wooster Rubber. The initial company focused on creating toy balloons. However, in the 1930s, the brand began to expand. The first alternative product made by Rubbermaid was a patented rubber dust pan. The company soon added other kitchen supplies to its lineup, all under the name Rubbermaid. After various business mergers, Rubbermaid products became increasing popular and well known, allowing the company to expand its product selection and diversify its focus. In the 1950s, Rubbermaid began to produce plastic items, which have continued to be strong sellers for the company even into the modern era.
