European Quality

Our steel wire ropes and connectors are well known for their quality all over the region and in our new facility we will be drawing wire

Quality has been the most important word for the UNIS USHA Company ever since it was established. The factory has already produced steel wire ropes and slings for 35 years and regional buyers look first to this manufacturer for them. The company also takes pride in its accredited laboratory for mechanical and chemical testing, boasting state-of-the-art equipment, certified by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance, a London certification body.

Mr Mandić you are the regional leader in manufacturing stainless steel cable. To which markets do you intend to expand?

– Our factory’s products are found on the markets of Serbia, B-H, Montenegro and, to a lesser extent, Macedonia and Croatia. Our future goal is to increase our presence on the Croatian and Macedonian markets, but we are also negotiating with some Austrian and Slovenian companies with regard to entering their markets.
