GOMMA Line, same knowledge, new factory
GOMMA Line Company was registered in Kragujevac on January 16th, 2007 as a limited liability company for the production of rubber based automotive products.
The activities of GOMMA Line Company are: the production of extruded sealing rubber profiles, brake hoses and hydraulic clutch hoses, technical rubber products for the automotive industry and design and manufactuing of molds for plastics and rubber.
Due to the increased need for extrusion dies and injection molds for rubber, and the possibilities for the placement of these tools and tools for injected plastic on the market, and also the need for tool maintenance for Fiat Automobiles Serbia and their suppliers, we made the strategic decision, in Novenber 2012, to implement new activities in the company – the production of tools and tool maintenance services.
Since its establishment, the Company has recorded exceptional business results and rapid growth. From year to year turnover has increased, from € 31,000 in 2007 to € 7,000,000 in 2017. Currently GOMMA Line is the leading exporter with domestic origin capital in the category of small and medium-sized enterprises, and its monthly export value is more than € 300,000.
The market orientation of the company in the past has focused on the CIS: the Russian Federation, Belarus, Uzbekistan and Ukraine. Almost 95% of the total production is exported to these markets as original equipment in vehicles.
GOMMA Line is a locally owned company which is a supplier of the factory ‘Fiat Automobiles Serbia’, through the company Sigit to which we supply rubber run channel guides for side door sliding glass.
In 2012 GOMMA Line certified its quality management system for suppliers in the automotive industry (OEM) according to the requirements of standard ISO/TS 16949:2009. The ISO 9001:2008 standard was implemented from the very beginning of the company. In 2013 we have completed certification to the ISO 14001 standard.
We successfully completed the qualification of GOMMA Line as a manufacturer of parts for the initial assembly of Renault/Nissan group’s vehicles, which allows us to export and expand our product range for Renault – AvtoVAZ, Russia, and to start talking with other producers who belong to the Renault/Nissan group.
All audits made by major customers GAZ and UAZ, have been successfully realised, with no observed nonconformities.
