Barnet Glass (1849-1918), was a rubber importer and manufacturer of rubber garments and accessories with a factory in Melbourne. In 1894, an office was opened in London and a branch factory, the Pioneer Rubber Company in Adelaide. In 1899, the Pioneer Rubber Factory of Australia was opened at Kensington, Melbourne. In October 1900, Glass converted his business into a company, Barnet Glass & Sons Proprietary Limited. In 1905, the company was bought by the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Company of Australasia Limited.
Barnet Glass then built a factory and plant in Footscray, and began work as Glass & Co. In 1908 the firm was converted into a public company, Barnet Glass Rubber Company Limited. As well as manufacturing rubber, the company were agents for Michelin tyres. By 1918 Glass had branches in every Australian State and in New Zealand. In 1929 Barnet Glass Rubber Company Limited also merged with the Dunlop Rubber Company. Barnet Glass Co. manufactured and traded as a separate organization until 1937, when its manufacturing activities at Footscray were transferred to the Dunlop factories.
