Foundry history


Despite the high increase in natural gas and electricity prices caused by the war in Ukraine, we tried to implement all planned investments and keep production in full operation.

  • We invested more than 7.5 million CZK in the recovery of waste heat from our main smelter. This heat will be used for the heating of the foundry production hall and workshop.
  • We purchased a new continuous mixer with a capacity of 60 t/h for the manual mould
  • We purchased a modern shotblast machine with internal dimensions of 2500x3500 mm with five shot-blasting wheels, power of each wheel is 30 kW.
  • We have a new bridge scale with a load capacity of up to 60 tons.
  • We cast 14.877 tons in 2022.
