Divisions

LCD TV Production Division

LCD TV Production Division

The largest production department.

It focuses on installation, finalization and testing of LCD and OLED TVs.

The manufacturing process starts at the PCB. Machinery and equipment for this operation are fitted with electronic parts for printed circuit boards.

The PCB is fully automated.

The boards then come to the lines where the TVs are assembled.

After completing all the products directly on the production line, they pass multiple quality control tests without operator intervention.

Continuous change of model without emptying of the line is possible thanks to the management of individual activities and cooperation between departments.

Corporate Responsibility

Social responsibility is for our company an integral part of business. The main goals are, in particular, sustainable development and corporate philanthropy, creating quality and efficient operations and efforts to provide a safe working environment without accidents.

We want to be an active member of the community, and we are therefore committed to helping our region. We are a regular member of Naše mesto, where, together with other companies in the region, we help to beautify our surroundings We are enthusiastic about blood donors and we believe that enlightening in this area will enable us to convince more and more colleagues about the importance of donation. Twice a year we organize donations of clothing and other supplies, depending on the requirements of organizations. We cooperate with the League Against Cancer. We support schools and non-profit organizations from our region.

Environment

We use the ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management System.

Environmental awareness of colleagues is enhanced by training and presentations.

Every year we organize Eco Day / Eco Month. The aim is to mediate skills and habits for waste sorting and more efficient use of energy and resources. We also encourage our colleagues to bring new improvements to processes and production processes so that negative environmental impacts are continually reduced.

Through the management of chemical substances and preparations, we identify the hazardous properties of chemicals and at the same time offer environmentally acceptable substitutes. By replacing solvent based on volatile organic compounds with other water-based products, we reduce the amount of emissions produced into the air.

We effectively use energy in lighting, refrigeration and air conditioning, appliance and technology, as well as heating, which greatly reduces the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.

We have an Environmental Product Guarantee program, which aims to reduce the amount of hazardous substances used. The main activity is the implementation of the Green Partner Program, which must be completed by each component supplier for finished products. In the Program, the Supplier undertakes that all components delivered are made with regard to protection and with minimal impact on the environment.

The waste produced is separated as much as possible. As an alternative to land filling we use energy recovery of waste.

We achieve a 99% recovery rate. We reduce waste by re-using packaging.

Since 2017, we supply electricity to the plant from exclusively renewable sources.
