A Slovenian company producing exhaust systems for all kinds of motor vehicles (cars, lorries, trucks, combined and military vehicles, construction machinery, generators, forklifts, tractors etc.), is now looking to expand into new markets and is looking for distribution agreements with potential partners, as well as manufacturing and subcontracting agreements. Company manufactures and installs exhaust pipes at the request of each party.
A Slovenian company is producing exhaust systems for cars, all-terrain vehicles, caravans (campers), trucks up to 20 tons of weight, and also for combined and military vehicles, construction machinery, generators, forklifts, tractors, etc. They manufacture and install exhaust pipes at the request of each party. Besides offering conventional exhaust systems they also offer sports exhaust systems and decorative pipes of various shapes on the closure of the exhaust system.
Exhaust system production is an important part of the automotive industry and is crucial for the faultless technical operation of a vehicle. The Slovenian family-owned company realized the market was in need of replacement exhaust systems. Therefore, in 1976 they opened a small industrial workshop that eventually developed into a successful SME dealing with the production and service of exhaust systems. While the company has a 40-year tradition of experience in their field, they are continually striving towards expansion and modernizing their processes, as indicated by obtaining the international quality certificates ISO 9002 in 1996 and, later, ISO 9001/2000.
In addition to the production of exhaust mufflers and pipes, company offers every solution with diesel particulate filters (DPF/FAP). They offer cleaning, rebuilding and they also sell new filters with homologations and guarantee.
The company has many wholesale customers in Slovenia and they export their products throughout Europe, all the way to Ukraine and Israel, as well Australia and Nigeria all of which amounts to 80% of their market.
The Slovenian SME is looking for distribution partners that will sell products to end customers - owners of motor vehicles. Ideal companies would be the one coming from the automotive industry and with possible experience in exhaust systems.
They are also looking for manufacturing agreement and subcontracting agreement with foreign companies looking for exhaust systems manufacturers in terms of offering their production capacities to other manufacturers on contractors.
Company products are constructed with sheet metal and pipes that offer excellent durability due to a galvanic application of corrosion resistant aluminium on both sides. Partition walls in the mufflers are at least 1.8 millimetres thick. The principal product processing takes place on computer-controlled production lines. All pipes and carriers are machine-shaped with numeric control. Inner pipes produced on the basis of the latest technology don’t have holes on critical points like welded joints, for example. The flexible pipes of their exhaust systems are reinforced, so they absorb stress and compensate for possible faults in the assembly process, which also guarantees better durability.
Research of new materials and constant improvement of production processes are two decisive features of the company. All products are manufactured in accordance with precisely defined quality and technical standards, and are approved to the most current European standards governing noise and return pressure. Range of products allows one to choose finished sets or individual parts. Company mufflers are always compatible with all automotive equipment and are, in comparison to original replacement parts, more economical, while providing the same or even superior quality.
The production process includes high quality materials, as the company is obliged to do so by, among other things, granted certificates and standards.
Knowledge of the market, understanding and consumer-consciousness have always been important factors of the company’s success.
The company was granted Euro type-approvals for exhaust systems according to the E 59 norm and Slovenian Quality (SQ) certificate, i.e. the green mark of Slovenian quality for sports exhaust systems.
Thanks to an extremely high level of production automation, company is able to manufacture up to 2700 silencers per day.
The company has over 130 wholesale customers in Slovenia alone.
The company seeks spare parts distributors in the automotive field for promotion and sales of exhaust system and their accessories to the end customers- owners of motor vehicles.
The ideal candidates should be companies specializing in the field of automotive industry. They should be familiar with the industry in the country that they are based in.
Company is also looking for manufacturing agreement under which the company offers to manufacture certain products. The aim of this type of cooperation is to establish a partnership in the frame of which the Slovenian company offers its production capacities to a company which has developed an exhaust system product and is looking for a manufacturer.
The other possible way to cooperate is subcontracting under which the company is offering to become a subcontractor, i.e. it is willing to produce exhaust systems. In the frame of this type of cooperation the company is looking for contractors interested to assign some of the obligations to the Slovenian company.
