Established over 35 years ago, we developed Tubtrugs®, the first two-handled, super-strong flexible tub brand that is known and loved globally.
Trubtugs, trogtubs, tribtops, rugtubs…we’ve heard ‘em all. But there is a story behind the name Tubtrugs®.
After developing the beloved two-handled flexible tub, we didn’t know what to call it! And how do you sell a product without a name?
Everyone knows what a "tub" is, and our super-flexible, ultra-durable use-it-for-everything container obviously fit that description. However, our tub was more than just a "tub", so we left it to our milkman, Bigfinger. Yep, you read that right.
Bigfinger (called that because his hands are like a bunch of bananas) made a delivery as we were wrestling with this naming conundrum and gave us the word "trug". A trug is a shallow basket made of slats of wood used in England gardens. With a little glue and elbow-grease we fit the two words together, and voila! — Tubtrugs®!
