Based in Uitenhage, South Africa, Rubber & Associated Manufacturers, or ram, was started in 1981. It manufactures a range of high-quality automotive hoses, belts (including fan belts, poly-v belts and timing belts) and accessories for the automotive after-sales market.


In 1983, Goodyear South Africa appointed ram as its sole distributor. It went on to buy the company, in 1991.


In 2014, ram partnered with Continental to increase its range of products and services.


The company's products, which are distributed across Africa, are tested in actual service conditions and comply with strict OEM standards. In addition, the ram factory in Uitenhage is listed by BVQI Belgium as compliant with the international standards ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001 and OSHAS 1800.


ram's radiator hoses comply with the SAE 20R1 DI standard wall specifications and are designed to withstand temperatures ranging from -40° C to over 125° C. For durability, they're made of black EPDM rubber, reinforced with two-ply synthetic rubber and with a protective outer finish.


At Masterparts, we're proud to stock a range of ram radiator hoses.
