This building started out as the Akron Maderight Tire & Rubber Works in 1920. The name of the company was changed to the Trumbull Tire and Rubber Works. The company was out of business by 1921. The building was foreclosed on and taken by the Union Savings & Trust Company in 1922.

The building, afterwards, became the Pullman Couch Company, that made the Pullman Couch, somewhat popular in days gone by. The Pullman Couch Company was headquartered in Chicago, but had this factory in Newton Falls. It is unknown when the Pullman Couch Company ceased operations here.

Today, this building is used by the Luxaire Cushion Company and has ten employees. Luxaire has used this facility since 1946.

In years past the Luxaire Cushion Co. was served by the New York Central Railroad which delivered foam rubber to the plant.
