Who are we?

HGF is a successful and expanding producer of rubber products. We have a clear objective – to continue growing profitably. We will achieve this primarily through new business relationships and by working more with existing customers.

We supply TPE and rubber products in our six business areas, Automotive, Industrial Products, Marine & Offshore, Mining & Construction, Sealing and Sports. HGF is headquartered in Halmstad, Sweden, located between Gothenburg and Malmö on the Swedish west coast. In Latvia, we also have an additional production unit that mainly produces products for the automotive industry.

To achieve our vision of becoming a "world-class rubber company", HGF introduced HGF Production Systems, HPS, in 2006, based on lean production principles. Lean has its origins in the Toyota Production System and is described as a philosophy, a way of thinking and a series of methods that are highly topical in business today. HGF embraced the principles and adapted them to its activities, which has resulted in numerous awards, including the following:

  • 2015 - Winner of Green Excellence Award (Riga Ministry of Environmental Protection)
