innovation and design


At Tomma, our driving force is about helping you design products that outshine anything done before – giving you the competitive edge over your customers, win new business, design inspiring spaces and above all, turn your vision into a highly functional, easy-to-use, superior quality reality. We listen to your needs, then design, develop and manufacture the ideal product that will deliver the best results for your application. In a lot of instances, not only do we achieve this, but we take it one step further – giving you the products to design beyond existing limitations.

And this is how we achieve it.


1. Listen

There is a saying about why we have two ears and only one mouth - so we can listen twice as much as we speak. And this is at very heart of our business. It’s in our DNA. Listening to you, our customer, is paramount. And really listening. And then instead of talking back at you with what we think, we ask questions. Lots and lots of questions. All of this to make sure we completely understand not just what you are trying to achieve – but help you work on what you may not even have thought of yet. Establishing a solid enjoyable working environment with deep levels of communication and insight is the first step to bringing your vision to life.

2. Custom Design

Our leading world-class engineering and design team are, at heart, inventors. We have patented loads of world leading products and we are passionate about working with you to bring your ideas to life. It doesn’t matter whether you are an architect, a builder, a door or window manufacturer, or even a developer – we work across multiple industries to design unique, innovative products that are based around solving problems that you might not even know you have. Don’t let existing hardware technology prevent you from imagining new possibilities. From developing large scale design solutions down to the simplest little application that will make every day easier, we are highly experienced and driven to designing unique product concepts that are specifically tailored for your applications and environments.

3. Development

These unique concepts are then further developed to ensure premium customer satisfaction is achieved. With over 100 years combined experience at Tomma in innovative product design, we don’t rest on our laurels. It’s in our DNA to continually develop, challenge and test everything we do to ensure that you receive the best possible quality products available. Tomorrow’s hardware today.

4. Prototyping

Using the latest 3D printing technologies, we can provide highly detailed prototypes, along with 3D drawings and simulations to illustrate detailed product designs prior to tooling.

5. Quality & Testing

We pride ourselves on product quality and reliability. Pre-production samples are inspected to ensure all material and dimension specifications are met. Tomma’s range of testing includes:

  • Cyclic Testing

  • Performance Testing

  • AAMA Testing

6. Supply

All inward and outward goods at Tomma are continuously inspected throughout our quality control systems to ensure a consistent high quality product is provided to our customers. We guarantee it.

7. Satisfaction Guarantee

We believe that you are more than just a customer. And what we offer is more than just a piece of hardware. We pride ourselves on building strong, lasting relationships with our partners. We know how to listen, how to understand and how to “get” what it is that you are trying to achieve. Your success becomes our success.  Your competitive edge, becomes our competitive edge. Because it is what you can’t see, that makes Tomma really stand out.
