Tekno Kaucuk has been operating in the Automotive sector, White Goods, Aviation, Defense Industry and Railway sectors since 1959. Tekno Kaucuk has four factories in Turkey, including its central factory in the Gebze Organized Industrial Zone (OBS), and produces rubber technical parts, primarily anti-vibration products, with three facilities in which it cooperates in Mexico and India. We have become a solution partner for our customers by developing products within our R&D Center.

Within the scope of our Defense Industry activities, we created the Tekno-Stop brand vibration and shock absorber (TDS) product family as part of the National Ship (MILGEM) Project, Turkey's first self-designed warship. These products are a rubber-metal and wire-rope type damper family used for shock and vibration insulation in underwater platforms, surface combat platforms and other marine and land applications. In line with the demands of our customers, TDS selection and shock absorption analysis are performed with our experienced engineering staff and software. Expert technical support service is also provided. In addition, thanks to our project-based product development capability, we are able to offer tailor-made solutions to our business partners. The product family containing our TDSs can be accessed at www.tekno-stop.com. Tekno-Stop brand TDSs are used in the equipping of a total of 55 ships within the scope of 12 different combat ship projects, including PN MILGEM, which was built for the Pakistan Navy.
