In 1990, Pumori Company was established to produce import-substituting clamping tools for modern CNC machine tools.

Pumori enters the metalworking market

The founder was Ilya Kolka, a talented design engineer with great managerial skills. With his ardent commitment, the small company has developed into a corporation, which is known both in Russia and abroad. For many years, Mr. Kolka held leading positions in the corporation. At the same time, he continues his designing activities and is the author of a number of innovative clamping tool designs.

See Mr. Kolka’s interview [in Russian] where he speaks about Pumori’s establishment history and shares his views on the future of the Corporation.
