The New York Belting & Packing Company, Ltd. was founded in 1846 (incorporated June 15, 1856) by Henry F. Durant and John H. Cheever in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Its industry was mechanical rubber goods and its headquarters were in New York City, New York. The company became a part of the Mechanical Rubber Company following its inception in late 1898. That firm in turn was acquired by the newly-formed Rubber Goods Manufacturing Company in 1899. Rubber Goods Mfg. and its subsidiaries were acquired by the United States Rubber Company in 1905. In January 1958, the company's operations were consolidated with U. S. Rubber's mechanical goods division.
