We are growing consistently since 1978.
Producing tooling and the auxiliary equipment for TOFAŞ services have been started with the establishing of Erkalıp in 1972. Ermetal started to manufacturing parts for serial life with the beginning of 1981 by “steering lower shaft” production of 131 Project. Another meaning of this manufacturing is also the localization of this part. It was very important if to localize considering the manufacturing capabilities at that time. This part is still on production as a spare part.
In the meantime Ermetal had increased its business volume by producing hand brake lever, cardan shafts and various sheet metal parts for TOFAŞ. In later years, the steering shaft systems have been manufactured for Palio and Albea models of Fiat and finally New Doblo Steering Column localized co-operating with RHODES.
