Nearly 100 Years of Making Grease
A. E. Huberd founded his shoe grease company in McMinnville Oregon in 1921. In his workshop, A. E. concocted a beeswax and pine-tar formula that he introduced to logging camps and sold to lumberjacks. The lumbermen throughout the region helped Mr. Huberd improve his formula, build his customer base, and establish a thriving manufacturing company. Huberd's products are made much the same way today.
Carrying on the Tradition
Huberd Shoe Grease products continue to be handcrafted in small batches with the original equipment from1944. Every tray of every item in Huberd's product line is poured, stacked, lidded, capped and boxed by hand ensuring consistency and quality. The small dedicated team at Huberd's continue to ensure that each batch is measured and blended exactly as A.E. Huberd had intended for your leather products. The attention to ingredient and blending detail guarantees a consistent product ensuring your leather is preserved and protected while carrying on the tradition of a family run business.
