ISMM Continues to Grow
The company is expanding its services for customers, creating new jobs, investing in the expansion
of space and machinery, and looking for other acquisition opportunities.
Mr. Cváček, you recently announced the opening
of a new powder coating plant in Město
Albrechtice. What specifically led your company
to the idea of building this?
The main reason was the expansion of existing powder
coating capacities, which has long been of great
interest among our customers. Although we already
have this technology at the plant in Štítina, and there is
already a smaller powder coating plant at the plant in
Albrechtice, we still had the need to paint some larger
products externally. Thanks to the new coating plant,
which allows us to paint parts up to seven meters long,
we can limit all outsourcing of this technology and will
paint our products in-house. In the long term, we are
able to realize certain savings while at the same time we
now have complete control over the final quality of our
How many jobs will ISMM create through this plant?
Two-shift operations are planned; five new jobs will be
created on each shift, so we will hire ten new workers
in total. From our point of view, this is an advantage of
locating the new technology in the Město Albrechtice,
because the local labor market is not so depleted
compared to the plants in Jistebník or Štítina, and we
manage to find new employees relatively easily.
In the year since our last interview, you managed to
make an investment worth 35 million CZK. What
investments are you planning in the near term, say in
the next two years?
Currently, for example, we expanded the machinery of
our other company ISMM & Jan Bacho in Dívčí Hrad,
namely a new CNC lathe and two press brakes and
the new investment reached 8 million crowns. As for
the flagship engineering company ISMM, in May we
started the construction of a new welding plant and
primary production hall in Štítína, this investment is
planned for around 30 million crowns. The hall should
be in full operation next spring. Independently of these
events, we also constantly monitor the market situation
and look for a suitable acquisition opportunity to expand
the portfolio of ISMM Group companies.
Mr. Cváček, thank you for the interview.
