About Us

Uzer Makina is a well-established Turkish company that has been serving the tire industry for over 45 years. The company collaborates with leading tire manufacturers to offer products such as tire curing presses, tire curing molds, and other tire curing equipment. In recent years, the company has expanded its product range by acquiring Uzun Hidrolik, a leader in the hydraulic sector. This acquisition has allowed Uzer Makina to add hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic blocks, and custom-designed hydraulic machines to its product portfolio.

In addition to its commitment to product quality, Uzer Makina fulfills its responsibilities in environmental, occupational health and safety, information security, and hydraulic industry leadership by holding ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 45001, and ISO 3438-2 certifications. The company is dedicated to sustainability and adheres to strict ethical codes, ensuring its operations are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable. It also follows robust health and safety standards to ensure the well-being of its employees and visitors to its facilities.

Uzer Makina operates four production facilities in Kocaeli, and a sales office in Florida to serve its customers. Furthermore, the company holds the international patent for the Surface Column Hydraulic Tire Curing Press, which was designed and manufactured by its own engineers in 2007.

Uzer Makina prioritizes customer satisfaction, high-quality products, modern manufacturing facilities, expert engineering staff, and a wide range of products, allowing it to maintain a leading position in the tire and hydraulic industries.

Additionally, Uzer Makina produces segmented molds using aluminum casting or 5-Axis CNC technology with a carving method. The company leverages the latest software technologies for CAD and CAM design. This software technology allows for error-free transfer of solid model data into the CAM system, providing continuous improvement in the product development process.
