This firm was founded in 1919 as a factory for the production of precise electronic products and light industry in the south Czech town of Velešín, where the company still has its seat up to the present. The company soon reached a super-standard technical level and in 1936 began producing parts and apparati for the aviation industry. After 1950 production also included hydraulics and other components for the automobile industry.
These fields compose the chief business program of the company up to the present time, thus enabling evaluation of the firm's many years of experience in construction, manufacture, and operation.
Production development and the steady expansion of manufacturing eventually required the company to extend its capacities, and the company gradually opened a new factory in the nearby town of Kaplice.
The JIHOSTROJ coorporation is becoming one of the most significant centers of machinery manufacture in South Bohemia via its renowned tradition. It's equipped with highest quality engineering technology for machining, shanking, thermal and galvanic parts production, production assembly and testing, and instrumentation and form production. JIHOSTROJ has its own development and construction base for aviation as well as hydraulic technology.
The firm was privatized in 1992, the owners now being stock-holders and Czech investment funds. The present annual turnover exceeds 500 million Kc, and the company has a total of 1200 employees.
In April of 1998, Jihostroj a.s. successfully passed a certification audit which confirmed the funcionality of the system and administration as according to norms ČSN ISO 9001.
