As well as rubber masks for the military, Avon Rubber is also a world-leader in the dairy business, under its Milkrite brand. The company produces liners and tubing required for milking cows in a modern age. These tubes need to be replaced to prevent milk contamination and the farmer is notified by Avon Rubber when this needs to happen, quite often every 3-4 weeks.
Once arriving back in the Avon Rubber factory clusters are taken apart and put into bins to be cleaned. They are then sent back out to the farmers.
