When Olrich’s Gummiservice closed down its production in Hamar in 1979/1980, a company was founded. Gum-Tek As, which was to continue parts of the production. These were molded products – rubberization of equipment for the fishing fleet – coating of steel wheels and the like. as well as repair of all types of tires.
The development went in the direction of retreading bus-truck tires, and at most approx. 20,000 pictures tires per. year. The competition in this market was very fierce, and at the end of 1989 it was decided to run a controlled liquidation of the company. At the same time, Rub-Tech As was established, and this company purchased the equipment needed to run and pure technical rubber production without car tires.
The company rented premises in Hamar and started up in November 1989 with 5 employees. Businesses are a family business, and have been in the family since 1999.
