Prihoda Mexico

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.

Suzhou Prihoda

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!

Prihoda Art

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.

We are reinforcing cooperation with our representatives around the world, whose knowledge of our products and level of technical expertise are essential for quality service to end customers. We have thus entered 2016 in great shape and with great determination.

Fabric Tiles SquAireTex

We are currently introducing a new series of diffusers which significantly differ from our previous products. These flat structures are intended for installations namely in false ceilings. Use of fabric and special channeling pockets enable us to achieve the same or better technical parameters than traditional swirl diffusers and anemostats. Advantages of SquAireTex diffusers include reasonable price, low weight, quick installation, configurable color and the possibility of washing. Three basic types are distinguished based on the achieved air flow: Swirl, Flow and Micro.
