Tinex has been operating since 1990. It found its market niche in marketing bearings, seals and linear and drive technologies. The company achieved a turning point when it signed an agreement with FAG, an established German manufacturer of bearings, and an exclusive agreement for the entire Slovenian market with Freudenberg, a well-known manufacturer of seals.
Soon thereafter, we signed an agreement with INA, a leading manufacturer of needle roller bearings and cylindrical roller bearings as well as linear motion systems, the Merkel company (now merged with Freudenberg), the leading European manufacturer of sealing strings, the KGM company, a manufacturer of bearing balls, and the Ziller company, a manufacturer of special metal rings for sealing all types of bearings.
Our long experience and market research have enabled us to understand the needs of the Slovenian market. We successfully meet our customer's requirements through a wide range of products and staff who are trained in various fields related to our business operations.
In 2000, the company moved to new a business premises in Šenčur. Five years later, the company Tinex industrijska diagnostika, a company for industrial diagnostics, was co-founded. In 2011, the linear centre was made where we have possibility of cutting linear components and belts. This year, we will expanded our offer with production of turned seals according to Merkel Xpress franchise.
