In the late '90s Doug Marinkovic moved the family business from Europe to sunny South Africa, when many were doing the reverse.

Car Part Manufacturer LMB Euroseals is one of 20 finalists in 2017 Sage Small Business Awards with 702.

The company relocated from Europe to South Africa in 1997 as a part of a family owned and run business which dates back to 1953.

They are constantly developing new items, increasing local content and offering the highest price to quality ratio on the market. For local skills, they have in-house training as well as management to employee one on one mentoring.

Doug Marinkovic is the COO of LMB Euroseals, he spoke to Bruce Whitfield, standing in for Xolani Gwala

Some components are still manufactured in our plant in Europe, some imported, but vast majority is manufactured here in South Africa.

Doug Marinkovic, COO of LMB Euroseals

We have invested heavily in the manufacturing plants here, testing laboratory, automated processes which allow us to compete on the global stage.
