RDAbbott Educates Television Audiences about the Rubber Industry

In this five-minute video documentary filmed by the Viewpoint Project, RDAbbott reviews the past, present, and future of the rubber industry.

The Viewpoint Project is comprised of an experienced team of creative professionals who produce educational content exclusively for Public Television stations. RDAbbott was selected to participate because of its passion for education and extensive knowledge and firsthand experience with rubber formulation and fabrication.

To participate in the Viewpoint series, featured guests must submit details about their educational mission and its specific industry relevance. The goal of the series is to provide unique and innovative educational content by featuring influential industry professionals and groundbreaking organizations.

This documentary highlights RDAbbott’s facilities, personnel, and equipment, and includes commentary from Keith Thomas, CEO; Jerry McCall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing; Rick Ziebell, Vice President of Technology and Technical Fellow; and Gerardo Ramirez, Jr., a former intern of RDAbbott who is currently working as a Mechanisms Manufacturing Engineer for Space X.

Their commentaries accentuate a few applications and markets where rubber is essential. Markets like transportation, aerospace, construction, and healthcare, where corresponding applications are improving fuel efficiencies, reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and contributing to medical breakthroughs.

“Rubber has made a profound impact on all our lives, from the way we walk to the way we communicate, and the way we travel. It has touched every aspect of our lives and brought tremendous value and tremendous quality,” shared Jerry McCall during the filming. He goes on to share how “…rubber is so much more than tires or door mats. It is a high-tech, limitless industry that is full of opportunities.”

Starting May 2022, this Viewpoint episode will start airing between longer-form programming on Public Television stations across the United States.
