Flexible production structure for optimal solutions

Components can be produced in any region thanks to the worldwide Sumitomo Riko network. The Decize site features an extensive production structure that guarantees high quality in optimised processes:
  • More than 50 presses for rubber and rubber-metal components
  • Extruders
  • Manufacturing systems for rubber and fabric carcasses
  • Special coating and bonding methods for corrosion protection
  • State-of-the-art mixing plant for the production of elastomer compounds for the Sumitomo Riko Group
