Working together means winning together

NIRA has been operating for more than 50 years to guarantee to its customers the EXCELLENCE in all ways, from the first contact to the supply of rubber items according to requested specifications.

The product range is wide and from time to time widens even more to meet different customers’ requirements. If an item in rubber alone is not sufficient, NIRA also proposes multi-component solutions manufactured by means of co-moulding or assembly with metals and thermoplastic materials.

NIRA is one of the market leaders in Europe; it manufactures and distributes products, which have many applications in sectors like automotive, power tools, home appliances, HVAC, hydraulics, building, industrial, pneumatics, off-road vehicles, and earth-moving machinery.

Our excellence is recognised by our customers, who reward us with their trust and their loyalty. NIRA has recently won an award reserved for the most solid, dynamic and reliable Italian companies on the national market.
