PIONEER SPIRIT
INNOVATIVE CHARACTER

WE HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN THAT THERE IS NO POINT IN BEING THE FIRST IF YOU DO NOT KEEP MOOVING FORWARD

In line with this philosophy, in 1983 we specialised in the design, manufacture and marketing of rubber belts for the continuous transport of solid materials, and chose to work close to clients, developing quality solutions that match their requirements.

In our laboratory we develop specific mixtures for each client, depending on their needs and preferences. Our quality team examines each conveyor belt before it leaves our facilities to ensure client satisfaction.

KAUMAN IN THE WORLD

Kauman products are present in over fifty countries worldwide, and are the best example of the company’s commitment to quality and versatility, two of its key values along with the personalised support that Kauman provides to its clients.

We are aware of the new challenges of the international market, which is why we work hard to maintain the trust of our clients around the globe.
