Rubalon Komandit Şti. was the first plant which produced nylon zippers in Turkey when established in Çankaya, izmir in 1963. Ruhrman, a German patent, one of the two patents for polyester zipper in the world, was used in production. The zippers were presented to the market bearing the mark of Rubalon.
The name of the company was changed to Ruba Fermuar San A.Ş. in 1975 when the plant moved
to its new grounds in Pınarbaşı. Meantime, the production of Ruhrman nylon type 5 closed end and open end zippers were started. First production of spiral type zippers began with type 5 in 1981. This was soon followed by type 4 in 1982. From 1985 on there was a boom in the production of type 5, type 4 and type 3 with cord. The company started manufacturing metal zippers, types 4 and 5, in 1990. Production of moulded zippers types 6 and 3, open end type 4 metal, invisible zipper type 3 and type 3 spiral zipper with welded stops were all achieved in 1996-1997.
