The beginnings of this company are in 1986 when we bought the first veteran car Tatra 57 – polocabrio year of manufacture 1935. Renovation was realized at home and at this time time very imperfectly. Of course, it was necessary to make a new fabric top and upholstery, and tat was a big problem in socialist time. In our town worked a saddler and upholsterer, but at that time he was working privately and had permission from the National Committee and the local collective farm. Unfortunately, everything he made, had to be remade. And here are the foundations of our business. We had close to manual work. Mariela Reková – Secondary School graduate textile in Jihlava, at that time working as a top master’s in textile secondary school and Miroslav Rek was employed as an electrical maintenance manager at a local heating plant. The connection between the two professions – the textile and machinery were necessary to started with car uphostery. After 1990, we started their business, first just job, after some time full time. We employed first workers and started to deal with development of the company. Original working conditions – terraced family house became smaller, so it was necessary to move into a larger house. In 1997 we bought a house with plot in Oldrichov near Pisek. It is a small village about 4 km far from the town square in the sand that was originally intended for destruction and demolition of our valiant army (today there are hundreds of new plots). First workshop was in the house (living room about 40 m2) and a garage for about 4 vehicles. In 1998 we started to build the workshop (a total of 300 m2, of which 200 m2 workshop itself) and then added the auxiliary facilities, warehouses and a “dirty” workshop (for welding and other mechanical work that may come into contact with so-called “clean “workshop.
Nowadays we have working space 400 m2, storage area approximately 300 m2 and ancillary (office, cloakroom, dining room about 100 m2). The average number of production workers is 17 + 2.5 in the management of the business.
