Kremenchukgumotechnika Private owned Ukrainian technical rubber plant Established in 1987 Built from nothing, without initial capital investments
Ukraine Ukraine, territorially located in the southeast part of Central Europe, is related to those countries where high qualification level of workers combines with very low level of salaries. Power and raw materials also have incomparably smaller cost, than in West- European countries.
Ukraine At the same time, Ukraine makes airplanes and launch vehicles, ships and locomotives, lorries and autobuses, cars and motorcycles, computer and electronic equipment, precision instruments and agricultural machines, TV and wireless apparatuses, chemistry and textiles. Practically all parts of economy are presented in Ukraine.

Example of outcome 22 000 pcs in one shift, 500 000 pcs in a month from one molding machine. Price of one rubber-metal oil-seal with spring – $0,08.
Rubber mixing Rubber compounds are mixed in our rubber compounding shop. Every rubber batch goes to laboratory for physical testing. We can develop a compound for customer requirement or seal application.
Competitiveness All processes of oil-seals fabrication, including production of tooling and metal parts, are concentrated inside the factory That allows us to control the quality of manufactured products at all production phases, considerably makes cheaper the cost price and let us quickly produce tooling for new products. Our technical team can help you in design development and in material selection. Finished products will be manufactured precisely under your requirements specification.
Tooling Shop We have own tool shop on the area of 1100 square meters.
Tooling Shop At our toolroom base we produce press tools (compound die) for manufacturing of metal inserts, moulds, special tools, technological devices and automatons.
Design department Design department, equipped with 2D & 3D CAD/CAM systems, is situated on the second floor of tool shop.
Tooling Shop Our engineers work in close interconnection with technologists that allows us to produce tooling for rubber-metal products in shortest terms.
Tooling Shop The complete cycle of internal moldmaking includes heat treatment (furnacing) and chromium (Cr) coating.
Tooling Shop When production of rubber-metal products - everything, that is necessary for us from the client - his requirements specification.
Aims of Tooling Shop Presence of own tool production facility allows us to develop new articles in shortest terms and to maintain all manufactured tooling in proper condition.
Quality policy We think that high quality of manufactured products - a necessary condition of our companys competitive strength, its success activity and growth. There are many factories in CIS countries, which produce rubber products, but quality has only a few. Only high quality but not low price, based on low quality, can guarantee long-run mutually beneficial relationship with clients. Therefore, the quality of work became normal for us. Even in most hard periods of our evolution we didnt betray to above principles.
Ukrainian certification Laboratory facilities include: Laboratory two roll mill for development of compounds Hardness testers, IRHD, Shore A Rheometer for cure testing of compounds Tensometer for measurement of tensile, modulus and elongation at break Compression set equipment Cell ageing ovens and laboratory general purpose ovens Gehmen low temperature testing Stand for an operating time and leakproofness of oil-seals Equipment for the control of seals cross-section Equipment for determination of bond strength of rubber with metal on brake-off Equipment for controlling of an axial force of springs Device for determination of pressure of working ridge with a spring on the shaft Solvent and oil resistance can also be measured using a range of test fluids. Our laboratory is accredited by bodies of State Standard of Ukraine for right to grant the certificate of conformity UkrSEPRO.
International certification Preparation for certification by ISO 9000 is in progress now. At the same time we consider that quality system should exist not only on paper, but to functionate really, building up streamlined system for the whole of enterprise, which will allow us to move forward and expand - to get profit from its implementation. Infrastructure and equipment, planning and controlling systems, procedures of interaction with customers and suppliers – all this is need first of all to us, as to enterprise, which manufactures quality products, offering full service to buyers: from drawing to mass serial production of rubber- metal articles. We are building such system now. When it will be formed completely - our foreign partner will define, to which agency he trusts to perform an audit.
Price policy Our factory is situated on industrial estate – in 7th kilometers from one of the leading industrial centers of the country - city of Kremenchuk in which are manufacturing lorries and passenger cars, wheel disks, road machines, railway vehicles, the electrotechnical equipment, chemicals and petroleum derivatives, carbon black, steel & die castings, tooling, concrete ties, etc. The industrial baseline of the city's factories has allowed to bring together at our factory skilled technicians: chemists, technologists, engineers, designers, tool makers, etc. It is difficult in the World to find specialists with such high level of qualification, which labor would have so low fee. For example, the salary of the qualified Ukrainian worker amounts $350. It is possible to find hundreds of similar instances in a difference between local and world prices. As a result - we offer to the buyer oil-seals cheaper than European prices, saving at the same time high level of quality and sufficient profitableness of production.
2006year program New lands buying. Building new shop with several sections under one roof: rubber edge finishing (trimming), oil-seals springs producing, oil-seals assembling, inspection and packing. New laboratory placement inside the main administrative building. Foundation a section of small automated machines 400x400 with ejectors - to have an ability to process not very big orders too. By results of cooperation with European partners – to begin ISO 9000 audit phase.
