Arco factory

When, in 1890, the Leyland And Birmingham Rubber Company needed somewhere to distribute industrial asbestos and rubber supplies, they looked at Hull and thought that's the place for us. So was formed the Asbestos and Rubber Company or Arco. Nowadays they make over 22000 products with  a wide range of safety gear and industrial clothing and are a world wide company. You can find out what good guys they are at their very own website here.
