All equipment for the production and processing of wooden or other pellets is made by experienced craftsmen from the Austrian-Czech borderland. The workmanship of local craftsmen, technicians and engineers is one of a very long tradition.
Austro-Hungarian Empire and Industrial Revolution
During the industrial revolution in the 19th century a large amount of important industrial factories of the Austro-Hungarian Empire were concentrated in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. Craftsmen skills, their hard-work and good knowledge of languages ensured stability and international competitiveness for the Austro-Hungarian Emperor. Many large factories as well as some small local craftsmen were even among the Emperor’s exclusive suppliers of goods to the king’s court.
In 1918, after World War I, the Austro-Hungarian Empire disappeared from the world map and it became clear that over 70% of all strategic factories and industrial centres of pre-war Austria were located in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia.
Moreover, the new generation of craftsmen started to appear basing their skills on the traditions and hard work of their fathers and grandfathers. Some of them became well known industrialists thanks to their diligence and craft skills…
In the city of Zlin a shoemaker named Tomas Bata built a huge shoemaking empire that has its branches in dozens of countries throughout the world and it successfully operates down to this day. Ferdinand Porsche from town of Reichenberg (Liberec) is renowned as an automobile designer. Porsche and Hans Ledwinka (chief designer at Tatra automobiles) are the authors of the legendary Volkswagen Beetle car.
Tradition coupled with Czech craftsmanship is most important to us too. Our equipment for pellet production and processing is protected by many patents and has been awarded many prizes. We are proud of the high quality of our products and we also feel the obligation to continue in the tradition of our predecessors. In the Czech Republic, there is a saying that the local people can cope even with hard time thanks to their “golden Czech hands”.
Even though this is a hyperbole, from the times of the Austria-Hungarian traditional craftsmen from Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, they are still aware that their long-term success can only be ensured in the same way as in the past – by their hard work and by honestly made machines and equipment that are of excellent quality.
