1998 - Again, new production grounds of 16000 m2 are bought to sustain the constant growth.
2002 - GOMAX products have become the preferential choice of many global AC/R OEM’s, who recognize not only the technical but also secondary advantages of GOMAX products such as quiet and smooth operation eliminating vibration noises in units.
2003 - Introduction of Ecology hoses for sewer cleaning applications. Among the most important characteristics is the hose’s increased lifetime thanks to the introduction of a revolutionary bonding system.
2004/2005 - Sales of hoses for hydraulic and industrial applications in constant strong growth, needing further investments.
2006 - Launch of the divisions TO HYDRAULIC and TO INDUSTRIAL, widening of the range to more than 40 hose families.
2007 - Important further investments in state of the art braiding machinery to increase capacity by 30% to 13 million meters per annum. Transfer Oil hose products are sold to over 55 countries on 5 continents.
2008 - TO HYDRAULIC – TO INDUSTRIAL range of products is widened up to 50 hose families, for total 280 hose products, 110 of them all new. Also the GOMAX range has been significantly widened, introduction also a new professional crimping set, confirming Transfer Oil leading position in this market.
2012 - The GOMAX® division developed a new QUADRA™ flexible hose to exceed the new specification EN 1736:2008 that regulates the performance of the flexible hoses in air conditioning and refrigeration units. Tests results for all GOMAX® QUADRA™ flexible hoses, when calculated according to EN 1736:2008, achieves CLASS 1 that is the most stringent permeability category today recognized by the market.
2012 - Construction of a new 5100 square meter (16,732 squared foot) annexe plant specifically designed as an integral continuation of the main building.
2012 - Construction of a photovoltaic / solar powered system capable of generating one-fifth of the factory’s annual power consumption.
2013 - Launch of the division TO UHP - Thermoplastic multi-spiral hoses for ultra high pressure applications such as water cutting, UHP tube cleaning, surface preparation, paint removal, hydro demolition, waterblasting, bolt tensioning.
2013 - ISO14001 certification of Transfer Oil’s environmental management system as one of the first in this industry.
2015 - Approval and certification of its Occupational Health and Safety Management System in accordance with the British Standard OHSAS 18001.
