the plant here and invest in the Moravian-Silesian Region.
In conversations during the first summit, Mr Vyncke paid
us sincere compliments but also mentioned the drawbacks
in the region which obviously do not help the enterprise here.
“We started our enterprise in the former Czechoslovakia
in the late 1980s. This region is rich in natural beauty as well
as educated people. However, there’s a serious handicap
in infrastructures, mainly the lack of airlines to Europe.
Yet I do believe in its prosperous future,” said Mr Dieter
facilitating the production and implementation of projects
We also appreciate the potential of secondary engineering
schools and of the VSB–Technical University of Ostrava,
which educate and produce high-quality staff. These
factors have altogether helped our company become the
greatest foreign branch whose number of employees and
range of competences make it fully comparable to the
Flemish central premises of Vyncke.
Our premises in Chlebovice have been developed into
a Vyncke showroom, where we meet our customers
to demonstrate the brilliance of our solutions, the skills
of our engineers, and the quality of our production.
This was also one of the reasons why we organized two
international summits here in autumn, hosting other
companies of the Vyncke group, our joint venture partners
and collaborating businesses from all over the world.
The co-owner, Mr Dieter Vyncke, said that the
company had never regretted the decision to locate
Vyncke is a family company with a tradition and social
responsibility. How do you connect responsibility and
As the Vyncke family, we do our best wherever we go
as concerns respecting local habits, and treating our
neighbours, local business partners and region in general
with good manners. “This is why the plant in Frýdek-Místek
is not just a branch of a Belgian company, but of a local
family business with Flemish origin,” says Petr Salvet.
We support various charitable and social events in our
district. Primarily we cooperate with Spirála, whose
employees look after our grounds. Spirála employs people
with mental disabilities and helps them recover from
serious mental illnesses. Spirála provides social services
and sheltered jobs in maintaining greenery but also
in catering, sewing, and cafés.
We have developed cooperation with Spirála in other
fields: we often contact them so that their catering and
sewing workshop may provide for our company events. We
support their activities via financial and donations in kind.
Our cooperation has already become a true partnership.
The primary aims of the Spirála public benefit society also
include the de-stigmatization of mental illness, promoting
a positive image of people with a history of a mental illness
via the high-quality services offered by Spirála to the wider
public. Spirála has very natural ways of demonstrating that
people with health issues can work for the good of society
and enjoy their jobs. It is the specific environment they may
need to work well. Vyncke company offers them a great
opportunity, excellent background and atmosphere
of complete trust.
Thank you for the interview.
