The company website outlines that apart

from the basic values for quality, care and in-

tegrity of the products, their aim is to always

remain an ethical and social responsible com-

pany. For the continual improvement of their

community and environment, they focus on the

Svemek also explains that it considers the

Environmental policy as one of the fundamen-

tal aspects on which the company operates. It

is constantly dedicated to finding new and bet-

ter technological solutions, improvements and

savings concerning material and energy re-

sources. For this reason the company has in-

corporated a Solatube day lighting system,

which allows natural daylight in through solar

specters placed on the roof above the neces-

Tehnoproduct is established in 1990 as a

production firm for rubber and metal. In the be-

ginning, the production line entailed produc-

tion of rubber parts, but in small quantities,

however, over time the product list increased.

Along with the increase in the production, Teh-

noproduct sensed the need of becoming verti-

cally integrated. To elaborate on this, it began

to produce its own molds (needed for produc-

ing a certain part, which by then was out-

sourced), and afterwards it began to produce

its own rubber mixture (the raw material need-

ed for a product to be manufactured). The

products are characterized with a quality that

satisfies the needs of the buyer in terms of en-

durance, functionality, and durability, explains

the company.

The mentioned products are used in the

transport i.e. transportation belts, vehicles,

food industry, hydraulics and pneumatics. Te-

hnoproduct’s production plant is situated in the

industrial area of Gevgelija encompassing a

space of 7300 sq. m, out of which 1400 are

administration and production buildings, 500

sq. m warehouse, 200 parking lot, 650 sq. m

yard, 500 sq. m park and the rest is left for

future needs.
