It manufactures forged parts for fluid transport, high-precision cylinders, gear production, bearing rings and high-pressure tanks for pneumatic applications.

Samtech's plant is located on a 39,800 square meter site, where it currently has a 5,500 square meter plant with 8 hot forging lines of 3,000 tons for shaft and 1,200 tons for closed die.

The current expansion includes 4,600 square meters of land. Its main customers are J-TEKT, NSK and Mazda.
