History of Teknia Uhersky Brod, plc.
History of Teknia Uhersky Brod, plc. dates back to 1992, when the predecessor of our company – KASTEK, public limited company – was established. The activities of KASTEK company focused on production of plastic shoemaker’s components.
In 1993 the company changed its legal form and it was registered in the Commercial Register as a limited liability company. A year after it was established, in 1993, the company expanded the range of products and started producing technical mouldings.
In 1998 production of technical mouldings moved to a new production facility in Rybářská street in Uhersky Brod. This production facility in Rybářská street has been the company site up to the present.
Shoemaker’s part of the production was completely separated from the production of technical mouldings in 1999.
The year 2003 was a significant one for the company. New hall for surface finishes and assemblies was opened and the operation was launched. Technologies in production were expanded, as well as supplies and production of the company on the market.
