Examples of customization and innovation

A project of Ruma in development, a nice example of close cooperation with our customers

We enjoy taking on the challenge of helping our customers develop innovative production processes, solve problems or provide solutions in case of a highly specific challenge. For example, we have recently used our knowledge and capabilities to solve a problem for a textile industry client.


The product this customer works with previously contained an ingredient that needed to be replaced while maintaining performance specs due to stringent health requirements. This particular ingredient contains specific properties which were required to keep the production process running smoothly and could not easily be replaced.


Our laboratory has developed a new compound suitable for use in the textile industry that contains no components classified as harmful to health. All tests at Ruma’s laboratory have been completed and have gone well.

At our client’s premises, the newly developed compound is currently being extensively tested in practice so that, after the client’s approval, it can be put into use.

Ruma contributes to the sustainability of the energy market

The connectors supplied by Ruma Rubber are an example of a customized collaboration. Here, the entire process of arriving at the production of connectors was developed in consultation with the client. Now Ruma supplies a wide range of high voltage connectors for a range between 50kV and 550kV in series production.

Water-swelling elastomers

Ruma Products’ water-swelling elastomers is another great example of innovation. These products were introduced to the market in 2001 for the oil & gas industry.


Today, our water-swelling elastomers are used worldwide to optimize well production. We produce Swellable Packers at our locations in Hoogeveen and Dubai. The development is ongoing. Click here for currently available applications.
