A. Vogt GmbH & Co. KG has existed since 1946 and is based in the German town of Arnsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia. The company has been family-owned for three generations. Our product portfolio consists of standardised moulded rubber parts as well as customer-specific moulded rubber parts made of all common elastomers.
Well-known manufacturers in the automotive and electrical industries rely on GUMMIVOGT products, as do many other customers, especially in plant construction and mechanical engineering.
Our company has its own in-house mould, tool and plant construction department. This makes us extremely flexible for customer-specific production requirements and consistently ensures the highest quality of all products.
Thanks to our production model - Made in Germany - under one roof - we always have an overview of all production steps. Our raw material suppliers are obliged to comply with all legal requirements and regulations, including updating them, and inform us as downstream users about relevant changes.

END-OF-LIFE VEHICLE DIRECTIVE, IMDS AND GADSL
Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council
Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament on end-of-life vehicles regulates the recycling of motor vehicles within the European Union (EU). It contains, among other things, substance bans applicable from 1 July 2003, for example for heavy metals and chromium (VI).
The materials used in our products are communicated, archived and managed within the IMDS system. Automobile manufacturers and their suppliers can thus fulfil their obligations arising from national and international norms, standards, laws and regulations. The IMDS data will be provided as part of the Initial Sample Test Report or PSW (Part Submission Warrant) reports.
