In 2020, the traditional manufacturer of rubberized textiles and rubber products celebrated its 70th anniversary. The portfolio of the GUMOTEX Group is currently based on two main segments: rubber-based products and parts for the automotive industry.
The GUMOTEX traditional production programme – the rubber products segment accounts for about 1/3 of sales and includes mainly the production of specialized mattresses for modern electronically controlled beds, the production of inflatable boats, specialized rubber mixtures, technical coated fabrics and products for integrated rescue systems, such as inflatable tents and flood barriers.
Production for the automotive segment has been a significant growth factor for GUMOTEX in the last few years and currently accounts for approximately 2/3 of its sales. The main products are seat fillings made of polyurethane foams, head restraints, complete sun visors, shock absorbers and other vehicle interior parts based on expanded polypropylene, moulded plastic parts and rubber, textile and plastic car carpets. Recently, GUMOTEX has started production of the basic material - expanded polypropylene. The situation in the automotive industry has been quite turbulent in the last two years - fluctuating supply orders, chip shortages, multiple increases in input prices. GUMOTEX has managed to maintain its position in most items and agree with customers on continued cooperation.
The GUMOTEX Group has a holding structure into individual subsidiaries based on the transformation carried out in 2019. The GUMOTEX Group manufactures its products in Břeclav, Jaroměř, Třebíč and Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. In total, the Group employs around 1,300 people.
