Gummiwerk KRAIBURG GmbH & Co. KG is a company of KRAIBURG Holding GmbH & Co. KG.
As a leading solution provider with a focus on Europe, we develop, produce and sell technical rubber compounds of the highest quality – since 1947.
We offer a wider variety of compounds than any other European manufacturer. Our rubber compounds are used as semi-finished products in diverse applications, such as the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, the food industry, oil and gas production, roller production and in the products of numerous manufacturers of molded rubber components. Our goal is the optimal synergy of the compound formulation, raw materials and the requirements of our customers. The requirements placed on the finished parts with regard to compliance with chemical or physical standards are just as important as the processing method. Whether injection molding, extrusion or on presses – the compound is optimized specifically with respect to all relevant factors. These high-quality compounds are based on standard elastomers such as NR, EPDM, NBR or CM, as well as fluor- and silicone elastomers.

After many years of experience in that field the Bulgarian subsidiary was reorganized in 2007 to include the production of technical rubber compounds. This production plant focuses primarily on the markets in Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Hungary and Greece. But projects have also been implemented in Germany, Austria and countries of the Middle East.
The quality of our products is extremely important in our daily processes, which is why we introduced the quality system ISO 9001 at the very beginning.Please klick here to download our current ISO 9001:2015 certifikat.

70 years of tradition and modernity.
The history of Gummiwerk KRAIBURG started on 10/22/1947. In that year, Friedrich Schmidt senior began producing rubber compounds in Kraiburg-Hart, using rather limited resources and operating under very difficult conditions. While the beginnings of the company are rather humble, a solid foundation was laid for the future success of the KRAIBURG Group.
Thanks to the tireless work and commitment of the founder’s sons Peter and Fritz A. Schmidt, sales and production increased year on year.For more information on the history and the milestones of KRAIBURG, please visit the website of KRAIBURG Holding (mother company of Gummiwerk KRAIBURG).
Prepared for the future through sustainability.
We strive to use the natural resources for our production processes, products and services in a responsible manner and with as little environmental impact as possible. Sustainability is firmly established in KRAIBURG’s business processes and our goal is to continuously reduce the consumption of raw materials through optimization of our processes. We adhere to this principle also in the design and modernization of buildings and the machine park, and in the manufacture of products and their processing by our customers. KRAIBURG is aware of its entrepreneurial and social responsibility toward its employees, customers and business partners at all times, and also toward the social environment. Because sustainable action is the only way to prepare for the future.
Six factors characterize KRAIBURG’s requirement for sustainability:
Products and innovations
KRAIBURG continuously strives to meet the constantly changing demands of the market with creativity and innovations. Through a high degree of initiative and direct cooperation with partners and customers, we develop new solutions that are used in products of the future.
A decisive factor for our success is our workforce, consisting of more than 400 highly qualified employees. Our organizational and management structure gives all employees the freedom to think and act independently. Individual knowledge and creativity – courage to pursue unconventional ideas and many years of practical experience enable joint, well-founded decisions.The extensive cooperation between all departments is an important basis for us in this respect.
Highly motivated and experienced
The individual has always played an important part in our family owned company. Many of our employees have been with us for more than 10, 15, 20 or even 30 years. That means you benefit from highly motivated and experienced staff who will support you in numerous projects over the course of time.
We fulfill our goal of offering the best possible quality through the high standard of our daily work and the continuous improvement of our results. KRAIBURG ensures this not only with numerous certifications and test methods; the experience of our employees and their high level of technical commitment and knowledge are important factors that contribute to the outstanding “KRAIBURG quality”.
Our customers expect individual, efficient and personal service. We are committed to the goal of offering “outstanding service among Europe’s compound manufacturers” – a goal we pursue both internally and externally. That puts us in a position to develop long-term cooperative relationships with our customers.
Ecological responsibility has many facets at KRAIBURG. Since 2014, KRAIBURG has been certified according to the ISO 50001 energy management system. This allows us to develop previously unused energy efficiency potentials, and to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gases (such as CO2 emissions). The energy management system makes an important contribution to protecting the environment.
Environmental protection is a cornerstone of corporate policy at KRAIBURG.
This is achieved on the one hand by reducing waste, emissions and the use of resources in production, and on the other hand by preventing toxic or environmentally harmful raw materials already during development of the compounds.
At KRAIBURG, we live the philosophy of our company culture: As an innovative Bavarian company we stand for reliability and environmental awareness. Management creates clarity with respect to the direction and goals of our activities. It assists employees in developing their potential and enables them to take responsibility for their actions. We respect and help each other. Friendly relationships based on mutual respect strengthen the trustful cooperation to internal and external partners. We like our work and act for the benefit of all partners of KRAIBURG. By fulfilling our daily tasks, we gain recognition and self-confidence. The long-term commitment of employees to KRAIBURG reflects the good work climate at our Company.
