In the beginning of 2019, I can predict that this year will mark the beginning of a significant development of the company. Last year, we grew by 11.6%, however, I believe that the growth will continue in even a faster pace in the near future. We have stabilized our production in all three production facilities and we have strengthened our business interests particularly in Asia. We are staring to use a new generation of design software Air Tailor, which pushes the designing process of textile diffusers to yet another level. This fact as well as several other innovations fills me with optimism. I would like to thank our customers and business partners for their continuous support.

2017 a fost un an destul de complicat pentru noi, cu cateva schimbari importante. Impreuna cu partenerii locali am deschisdoua fabrici noi in China si Mexic si - pentru prima data in istoria noastra - o parte din productie s-a mutat din Hlinsko. Inceputurile au fost dificile in ambele locatii deoarece nu acceptam compromisuri la calitate. Uriaza crestere a cererilor pentru produsele noastre a fost o mare provocare si termenele de livrare au fost deseori prea lungi. Am inceput noul an hotarati sa nu mai permitem asta. Ne-am marit considerabil capacitatea de productie in Hlinsko si fabricile subsidiare opereaza acum la capacitate normala. Chiar daca am pierdut multe comenzi din cauza termenului de livrare cifra de afaceri a crescut cu 16%. Avem peste 180 de angajati in 3 fabrici si suntem pregatiti pentru noile provocari. Lucram la proiecte tot mai complexe si asta e o mare satisfactie. Tubulatura textila continua sa fie cea mai buna solutie de distributie a aerului.

2017 Asian Distributor Conference
On the 19th and 20th September, Prihoda s.r.o. organized first oficial meeting of asian distributors in its daugter company Suzhou Prihoda. Participants were 20 people from China, Philippines, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Iran, Russia and headquarters in Czechia. They presented interesting mix of marketing and technical topics. The meeting brought an excellent interaction and networking among the group, while factory tour strengthens mutual trust between Chinese manufacturing plant and its customers.

After the recent opening of the manufacturing plant in China, we are announcing the opening of a sister company in Mexico. The increased demand for our products has made us broaden our capacities. The new plant in Mexico will supply our demanding customers primarily from North and South America. This way, we will shorten delivery times and also alleviate the burden of the parent company in the Czech Republic, which is important for our European clients. The first orders in Irapuato have already been fulfilled.

We are proud to announce the establishment of our production plant in China. The newly established subsidiary Prihoda Suzhou will provide us with the necessary production capacity and conditions for further expansion into the markets in Asia.
Our sophisticated quality management system ensure that the quality of our products is the same, regardless of whether they are made in the EU or in China.
This step is fully in line with the company philosophy, i.e. to be close to our customers and provide them with a fast and competent service.
The year 2016 was unequivocally the most successful in our 22-year history. We achieved a turnover increase of 20% and acquired over 6300 new orders. We used 867 thousand m2 of fabric from which we manufactured a total of 360 km of ducting and diffusers. The number of employees grew to 146; they all work at our four buildings in Hlinsko. After purchasing the technology needed, we began using custom-colored fabrics under the name “Prihoda Art.” We perfected the flat SquAireTex diffuser, which earned a top prize for innovation at the trade fair in Mumbai. A series of measurements in the reverbartion room provided us with enough knowledge about the noise level of our products, and enabled us to develop a quality noise attenuator. We compiled CFD analyses for tens of orders with the goal of providing the user with air flow tailor made for his/her needs. We arranged a conference of business representatives, attended by 66 people from 35 countries. Their good work is the key to achieving the satisfaction of our customers all around the world. Everything indicates that we are at the beginning of another busy year in great shape!
Zdeněk Příhoda, director of the company, January 2017
For over 20 years, cutting-edge solutions from Prihoda have set the standard for performance for textile air dispersion systems. Now, we’re raising the bar for aesthetics with our in-house dyeing technology, Prihoda Art.
This unique process gives us the ability to produce highly engineered fabric air distribution systems in any Pantone color, with any pattern, and even with any image—no matter how complex. Molecular bonding of the pigment with the polyester guarantees that colors and images will resist fading; even with regular laundering.

Another award for Prihoda SquAireTex Fabric Tiles
For the seventh consecutive year, Prihoda s.r.o. exhibited at the Acrex India trade fair this year and, among other things, showed the world its new product line - SquAireTex Fabric Tiles. Our SquAireTex diffusers attracted lots of attention from visitors at the fair, on top of which they won 1st place in the Innovation category in the ACREX Awards of Excellence dedicated to exhibitors with pioneering solutions under categories such as Green Products, Energy Savings, Innovations and Indoor Air Quality. The ACREX Awards Night took place on 25th February 2016 at the J W Marriot Hotel in Mumbai and Mr. Prihoda, the owner of the company, personally accepted the award.
Am reușit să repetăm rezultatele excelente din anul anterior 2015 și să realizăm mai mult de 5.700 de comenzi originale, care reprezintă o creștere de 12%. Difuzoarele noastre au fost vândute in total in 63 de țări, inclusiv Irak și Kenya pentru prima dată. Am îmbunătățit multe detalii, atât în calitatea produselor cat si in organizarea companiei și am lucrat intens la Fabric SquAireTex, cu care intrăm într-un nou segment de piață. Suntem mândri de camera noastră reverberație recent comandată pentru măsurarea precisă a nivelurilor de zgomot și am achizitionat de asemenea al patrulea sediu de operare pentru realizarea altor proiecte. Consolidăm cooperarea cu reprezentanții noștri din întreaga lume, ale căror cunoștințe tehnice despre produsele noastre sunt esentiale pentru servicii de calitate către consumatorii finali. Am intrat, astfel, in 2016 în mare formă și cu mare determinare.
