History and present
Our history dates back to before the Second World War, but only after 1964 we can talk about the structure of production and concentration of the quarries Plešovice, Ševětín, Kobylí Hora, Krty and Zrcadlová Huť, which were part of the national enterprise Západočeské lomy a štěrkopísky (West Bohemian Quarries and Gravel).
After 1990, the state-owned company Kamenolomy Český Krumlov was established through delimitation, from which our company was established as part of privatization. In 2004, we acquired two more quarries, Písek and Rejta, which expanded our market coverage in the South Bohemian Region to other regions.
In 2013, the Bor and Štiptoň quarries were acquired, and since 2015 we have owned the Jistec quarry.
Thanks to constant investments in the modernization of production technology, a strong customer orientation and the satisfaction of their needs, we have become one of the leading companies in our field in the Czech Republic.
Our production is around 2,500,000 tons per year, while the production capacity of our quarries is almost double. The next step for the perfect service of our customers is the acquisition of a state-of-the-art mobile crushing line, thanks to which we are able to cover sudden requirements of the market, especially during major infrastructure constructions. Our customers are thus assured that we are able to meet all their quantitative and qualitative requirements.
