Slovenský plynárenský priemysel

The brand MATADOR was established in 1905. At that time, the company’s portfolio focused on products made from rubber. The true success story however, began after 1950, when the tyre production plant in Púchov was built. Within the next 50 years we established the position of one of the largest and most innovative tyre producers in the CEE region. The year 2007, was particularly notable as a milestone in the company’s history. The rubber division of the business was divested to the joint-venture partner Continental AG. This was obviously a hard step to take, since we had to leave behind one of the most important and most successful chapters in the company’s history.

Driven by our firmly established values we started to write a new success story. The shareholders started to transform the company from a leading tyre producer to a first class TIER 1 supplier. With the establishment of MATADOR Automotive Vráble in 2005, the business focus shifted towards automotive serial production. A year later, we joined forces with the company AUFEER DESIGN and increased our competencies in the field of design and development.

In just 10 years, we have managed to become the largest family owned Slovak TIER 1 supplier. Nowadays, the MATADOR Group is a well-established CEE automotive supplier located in three countries across Europe. Thanks to our vast portfolio of services as well as our technological capabilities, we have been able to claim a firm position on the market. We believe that by hard work, dedication and innovative thinking we are able to become the first choice for customers worldwide.
