914 RUBBER WAS STARTED BY NECESSITY

When we were kids in the 80's there was always a VW, 912 or a 914 that Mark was driving and working on. So it was natural that when his oldest son Michael turned 15, that they went looking for a 914 as a father son project for his first car. We they started trying to restore it they quickly found out that there very few quality parts available for the cars.

THE COMMUNITY NEEDED THE SUPPORT

 Michael found a community of 914 owners on 914world.com so he set up a profile (Mikey914) and started asking the community for advice on locating the parts that he was looking for. At the time Mark was working for a company that was doing architectural aluminum a railing systems. (and building up his hours as a commercial pilot) When he was asked by the community if he could figure out a replacement for a seal that was No Longer Available, he produced the first product. The response from the community was overwhelming and 914 Rubber was born.

FROM A HOBBY TO A "REAL BUSINESS"

11 Years after that 1st part things had really started taking off. Marks Day Job was as a pilot for a regional airlines and keeping up with the parts business out of his garage and all of his friends garages and shops was becoming a full time job of its own. He asked his brother Matt to come  on-board and help take the company to the next level.
