Polyrit started its way in the early eighties, manufacturing, shoe soles.
Without compromising and cutting corners, the factory manufactured thousands and thousands of differently designed shoe soles using molds created by Polyrit, according to fashion trends of the period.
Since polyurethane has proved itself as a suitable component for shoe soles, many shoe manufacturers showed great interest in the success of this material, it whetted Polyrit’s appetite to utilize the material for other products.
In later years new molds for additional items replaced the models for soles. In the nineties, Polyrit manufactured office furniture, and by the beginning of the 21st-century, Polyrit began producing articles for the heavy vehicle industry: backrests and handles for seats. Of course, Polyrit made internal and external parts for “Freightliner,” later, Daimler, that was one of Polyrit’s leading customers.
