EMKA’s locks, hinges, and seals are what both experts and customers alike associate with the company – after all, the company is the world’s market leader in these areas. But since the acquisition of Bekto Precisa in Goražde / Bosnia-Herzegovina, EMKA has become one of the largest mould makers in Europe. We provide exclusive insights into two factories, where more than 700 employees producing 900 moulds per year for internationally known companies. Meanwhile, Goražde has become one of the largest EMKA locations worldwide. More than 150 colleagues are directly employed in mould making, 46 engineers work in development, design and CNC programming. Above all, the appearance and infrastructure on-site have changed significantly, as the original plant was completely rebuilt only 5 km away from the previous location.

In addition, EMKA bought a large plant for mould making, so that today 55,000 m2 are available for production and development. Both plants are located within close proximity. The employees can rely on more than 100 state-of-the-art machines.

Whether zinc die casting, aluminium die casting, stainless steel investment casting or plastic injection moulding: on the one hand, the wide range of machinery enables the production of own products in the catalogue programme; on the other hand, EMKA sees itself as a bilateral development partner of its customers.

Thus, EMKA is able to produce prototypes, first samples, and pilot series as well as large series up to complex assemblies from all mentioned materials in job order production. Among the end-users of this resource strength are well-known industry giants such as Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, and Fischer Sports (Ski), who can have up to 900 moulds and the resulting products manufactured by EMKA every year.
