OTC Super Brands LLC was originally formed in 1980 as OTC Distributors by William (Bill) Jubb. Our founder, started his career as a school teacher in Buffalo, New York. Bill taught for 6 years prior to accepting a position with a pharmaceutical company. He moved to California in 1974 after accepting a Senior Leadership Position within the company.
Wanting to be independent, Bill started his company and founded OTC Distributors in 1980. OTC originally shipped orders out of his garage, but the company quickly grew too large. OTC acquired commercial property in San Jose, where it distributed thousands of name brands products to independent and chain drug and grocery stores.
Bill was a creative and dynamic individual. Over the years, he developed innovative and unique products under the "Super Brands" label. Our #1 product is Super 31 ear plugs. When Super 31's were launched, all other earplug manufacturers packaged product in carded packages. Once opened, products packaged in cardboard cards are exposed to elements such as dirt, liquids and other contaminants. Our Super 31 Earplugs keeps our ear plugs clean and provide a convenient storage solution. Consumers loved this feature and also loved the pillow-soft, comfort shaped earplugs. All other companies copied our packaging concept , but fortunately, we gained a loyal customer following. We appreciate our customers who made us #1.
Earplugs are just one of many products. Over the years, OTC Distributors acquired many other "single-item" manufacturers products. These all became part of the OTC Super Brands LLC family of products. Please see our products pages for other offerings.
Sadly, Bill passed away this year. He is survived by his family. Our current President, Bill Jr. grew up in the retail industry. He started as a warehouse clerk at 16 years old. Bill Jr, was inspired by his Father's success and wanted to give back and serve our Country. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and proudly served 4 years honorably. Bill Jr. joined OTC after his enlistment. We are a disabled veteran owned enterprise.
OTC Super Brands will remain committed to offering the best products for years to come. Thank you for visiting our website.
