Progress: On the road to success
Že-Ma joinery factory started working in 1996 as a small workshop with only two employees. Years of effort, hard work and investment in production established ŽE-MA as a recognizable name in the industry.
In November 1996, Mr. Josip Rajaković established a manufacturing company called ŽE-MA Locksmith Workshop. He came up with the name by combining the first two letters of the name of his children, Željka and Matija.
He started his business out of a garage, by repairing various iron objects and performing similar minor locksmith work. After hiring his first employee, he started manufacturing metal garage doors, different types of balcony railings and metal construction. A few years later, PVC joinery appeared on the market, which gave birth to an idea of manufacturing PVC and, later, ALU joinery. He started producing PVC joinery in an old wine cellar with 7 employees, and by 2006 he built and opened a new production hall, purchased a modern CNC production line for manufacturing PVC and ALU joinery and hired additional around 15 employees.
To complete the production process, he started manufacturing ISO glass in early 2010. Through years of work and effort, he gradually developed a large modern manufacturing facility which now extends to 4000 m² of indoor space and 10000 m² of outdoor space. The factory is equipped with two computer-controlled lines for producing PVC joinery, CNC machinery for production of ALU joinery, CNC machinery for production of ISO glass and has 62 employees. After 20 years of successful business, ŽE-MA has developed into a company that remains family-owned to this day.
Our product range includes PVC joinery made of certified German profiles aluplast® and ALU joinery from a renowned manufacturer FEAL®. Modernization of production significantly increased both production capacity and quality, as well as reduced delivery times. In addition to the above, ŽE-MA offers stainless steel and blacksmith products.
We are present on the markets covering whole Croatia and our products can be found on the demanding foreign markets of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, etc.
Josip Rajaković and his family has made many sacrifices and investments from their own balance sheet to ensure successful, responsible and quality work. They had for years been committed to improving their business and profession, as well as promoting craftsmanship as a whole. As a result, he was awarded with the Golden Statue of the Zagreb Chamber of Crafts in 2011 for achieved business results, innovation and promotion of craftsmanship.
