INSULATION MATERIAL FACTORY FIM Kanjiža, seated in Kanjiža, Serbia was founded in 1979 and it was the first factory of this kind built on the basis of domestic knowledge, equipment and technology.

For production of insulation material we use high-quality bitumen from some well-known refineries of the region which makes possible manufacturing of membranes and masses for waterproofing of highest quality.

The company’s main production program consists of bitumen-based materials for waterproofing, i.e. membranes for waterproofing and waterproofing masses.

With annual production exceeding 6 million m2 of membranes and 4 million kg of waterproofing masses, our factory has become the most famous manufacturer in the region within a relatively short time period. Expansion on foreign markets has always been our goal set on part of the company’s management as from the very beginning. Even during the test production phase, FIM marketed its goods to Italy, Austria, Germany, Iraq and Belgium. In 2006 we expanded this range of countries with new customers in Australia, Hungary, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, etc.

Development of products and technical & technological innovations providing a basis for current production of more than 100 products have resulted from the development work of the factory’s engineers. FIM Kanjiža disposes of a modern laboratory and has been pursuing successful cooperation with scientific institutions and other producers of waterproofing materials for many years. Reconstruction and modernization of technological lines has been implemented fully utilizing all possible resources and opportunities. Improvements are continuously being made for purpose of keeping production on the European level. Recently, in addition to production of membranes and masses for waterproofing, we have acquired production of the road bitumen FIM – PmB.

The actual production program is expanded by a new group of products for thermal insulation. Significant investments in equipment were made in 2004 and manufacturing of thermal insulating material – EPS plates according to the top technology was launched. Its annual production capacity amounts to 150.000 mł at 15-30 kg/mł styropore density.

The above figures clearly show commitment on part of FIM to achievement of high quality and wide range of products by continuous investments in development and modernization of its production.

In this respect FIM is unique in this branch of production as evidenced by many buildings made by utilizing its insulation material. FIM applies effective Quality Management System fulfilling requirements of ISO 9001:2000 standard as certified by BSI Company from Great Britain.

During 2005 another substantial change occurred in work and business operations of the Insulation Material Factory. NIS – The Serbian Oil Industry, as the majority owner, rendered a decision on trading of its shares. Other shareholders of FIM also joined this initiative. A famous group TEGOLA CANADESE, including its members GENERAL MEMBRANE, ISOLTEMA, TEGOLA CANADESE and TEMA purchased app. 90% of FIM’s shares by takeover bid whereby it became the Company’s majority owner. The privatization carried out meant a big step in the company’s development which, thereby, became a member of a worldwide grouping in this area of production. Perspectives for further development of the whole scope of activities of FIM were opened.


A structural reorganization of the company has been made in the first place for purpose of getting the company’s business operations closer to the world standards. Increase in work productivity per worker and efforts aimed at full utilization of installed facilities have become the main goal of the development strategy.

After implementation of the reorganization, significant investments are planned, primarily for further modernization of technical and technological process. For purpose of continuous fulfillment of all needs and requirements of our customers, expansion of storage capacities, as well as modernization and rationalization of loading and unloading of goods is planned. In addition to permanent investments in the production process, we emphasize improvement of work conditions and work environment not only in production, but also in accompanying activities.
