Randy and Craig Rubin, developers of stain proof upholstery fabric 'Crypton', will receive the JVS Business Leadership Award on June 11.

“The Rubins won the award for developing a stylish and stain-proof upholstery fabric for restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other public spaces,” a press release from JVS Business informed.

“Crypton began as a solution to a big problem in the design world, as when a designer wanted to create beautiful patterns in places like restaurants, hotels, etc, they would vinylise the fabric,” Randy Rubin said.

“This was done in order to protect it from inevitable spills and stains, but the vinyl would delaminate and it was as well hot and sticky,” Randy added.

In 1993, the Rubins went to work developing a fabric that was both stylish and stain-proof, by taking inspiration from an item commonly found on store shelves and created an innovative solution.

“I was in a Walgreen’s drugstore and saw a huge pile of disposable diapers; that was the magic moment,” Craig Rubin said.

“If it was possible to create something that liquid could not penetrate and yet be breathable, then there must be a way to create a stain-resistant decorative upholstery fabric,” Craig too added.

“JVS is proud to recognize the Rubins for their success and innovation,” Josh Eichenhorn, JVS board member said.

“Just as important, their company has an enviable standard of excellence in employee relations and providing opportunities for employees to advance in the company,” he too added.

The Rubins have set-up patented high-tech textiles and environmentally-responsible manufacturing facilities and employ over 100 employees. (AR)
