History

About

DuBose Strapping has ties to the strapping industry dating back to the late 1960’s. DuBose is a 3rd generation family-owned company headquartered in Clinton, NC with facilities in Crawfordsville, IN. We manufacture steel and plastic strapping involving automated strapping machines, a variety of strapping materials, hand application tools and accessories.

DuBose Strapping owes its origins to Charles Holden DuBose, Sr and the lumber mill he started in the 1940’s. He used steel strapping to secure his lumber loads and soon began re-selling his used straps to other lumber mills. Realizing this need in his industry, Charles Sr. purchased his own steel strapping line to manufacture steel strapping for his use and to sell to other lumber mills.
