Western Rubber & Manufacturing (WRAM) was founded in 1977 as a custom rubber design and manufacturing plant for the oilfield industry. Located on the outskirts of downtown Houston, Texas, our product line consisted mainly of pistons and oilfield replacement stripper rubbers.


Over the following years, WRAM acquired employees familiar with conventional-style drilling swivels for the water well industry. WRAM quickly expanded its product line to include swivels and replacement parts catered to on-land oilfield and water well drilling markets, as well as many different types of downhole sealing equipment.


With the expansion of WRAM's product line, employee growth and customer demand, in 2006 WRAM relocated to a 19,000 square-foot manufacturing facility just north of Houston in Conroe, TX. WRAM's product line continued to grow to offer products for the horizontal-drilling, irrigation, mining, and construction industries.

Today, WRAM's swivel manufacturing line includes units in many different types of configurations, such as rotating heads, side-inlets, mud/rotary and air drilling units for water well drilling, and large-I.D. swivels for reverse-circulation drilling applications.


WRAM proudly offers many different types of downhole sealing equipment. From a complete line of K-Packers to seal between screen and casing, Well Packers and Shale Traps (formation packers) to seal between casing and annulus, and Pipe Wipers to clean drill rod - all of which are offered in a wide range of sizes and installation styles.

With our rubber molding facility, multiple-CNC equipped machine shop, in-house engineering staff and our dedicated and knowledgeable employees with expertise reaching as far back as the company's inception - while working together - WRAM has found no task too difficult to accomplish.

Since 1977, from Houston to Conroe, a quaint number of products offered, to a vast catalog of drilling equipment to accommodate today's driller - our focus has remained the same since the beginning - to provide the highest quality product at a fair market price while maintaining the technical support, customer service and product availability that is required in today's drilling and well development markets.


We know it takes a strong individual in the field. And we know you need drilling tools that are even stronger. At Western Rubber & Mfg.


This is Quality. Built in.
