Another anniversary: 25 years Pollmann Czech Republic

At the end of September, we celebrated what started 25 years ago in Jindřichův Hradec (Neuhaus). The date was June 6, 1992 when the new production location started operations 60 km from the company’s headquarters in Waldviertel in Lower Austria. At that time, we produced sub-modules for mechanical odometers. Final assembly took place in Karlstein/Austria, and from there, they were delivered to the automotive industry.

Since then, a lot has changed in terms of technology. Initially conceived as an extended workbench 25 years ago, Pollmann CZ enjoys a high degree of autonomy today with in-house capabilities in plastics processing and assembly as well as maintenance for the Tool Shop and Automation and Robotics areas. The same applies to the younger generation. Following the successful “dual training” model at the Karlstein headquarters, the location has had its own apprenticeship program for many years. Today, 26 injection machines are in operation here. And we are just now adding additional large equipment and two injection molding machines with a clamping force of 650t each. To keep up with this growth, we purchased and remodeled the entire adjacent Motor Jikov Strojírenská a.s. property in 2014. This increased the production area to 15,800m2.

From the very beginning, Managing Director Václav Kršík has been instrumental to the success of the location. He is very proud of the company’s excellent reputation as a fair and sustainable employer who cares deeply about the people in this region. At the end of 2017, he will retire after a long and successful career.

In January 2018, Soňa Nováková and Michael Hauer will take over the management in Jindřichův Hradec. Both are looking forward to their new responsibilities: “We want to continue the successful development of Pollmann in the Czech Republic. With our outstanding team of committed and top-trained employees we will certainly be able to do so.”

Today, Pollmann Czech Republic is the largest employer in the region with more than 500 employees and €33 million in sales.

 

In January 2018, Soňa Nováková and Michael Hauer will take over the management in Jindřichův Hradec and continue the successful development of Pollmann.
