Nemrod was founded in Barcelona in 1935 as a toy factory. In 1941, it began manufacturing diving gear, a sector in which the brand continues to be a leader. In 1959, a company called Seamless Rubber began distributing in the U.S., where the "Made in Spain" label for rubber manufacturers was synonymous with high quality. The German Metzeler (technical rubber and polyurethanes), a minor shareholder in Nemrod, increased its stake to 100% in 1981. At the end of the 1980s, the factory was moved to the U.S.
Our "parent" company ACIMSA was owned by Nemrod-Metzeler in Madrid.
