Beginnings and evolution of the company
Brasov is proud of its constant and prolonged tanners guild who are mentioned in various documents as early as the twelfth century. Black Street or Swargasz was first mentioned in 1464, over 40 tanneries having workshops here.
Several hundred years later, the craft was still alive, boosted by the industrial revolution that awakened throughout Europe. By merging several small workshops, three tanneries stood out in Brasov in the early twentieth century: the vegetable tannery of the MIESS brothers and two mineral tanneries for soft leather owned by the Scherg brothers.
The evolution of the Brasov tanneries continued with the nationalization in 1948 when the company AURORA was born, renamed in 1952 into TIMPURI NOI (NEW TIMES). This new company united the MIESS and Scherg factories, hence small workshops for leather processing gradually disappeared.
Several decades later, the free market allowed the separation for one new company from the former factory TIMPURI NOI (NEW TIMES) and so in January 1991 SC TAMIV S.A. was established..
In 1993 TAMIV S.A. became a privately owned company operating in Brasov until 2009, when the production activity was taken over by SC TAMIV BUSINESS LTD and was moved to the industrial area Ghimbav.
Investments and Development
Between 1991 and 1998, developing a long-term vision has facilitated a series of investments in modern equipment, which led to increased product quality.
These changes have enabled the growth of exports, the products being appreciated by foreign markets. Thus, much of the production could be exported to countries such as Germany, Austria, Italy, Moldova, Greece etc.
In the present, TAMIV owns its own laboratory for the physicochemical analysis, needed for the product analysis by standard methods.
The raw material is supplied by the suppliers accepted by TAMIV so that the requirement of markets, both the internal and external, can be fully satisfied.
The company size, the development and the investments so far and, therefore the product quality makes us a strategic player and a reliable partner for companies working in related fields.
