People and Environmental Protection Come First
Katapult, a legendary Czech band, released their second studio album in 1980. It contains one of Katapult's greatest hits, "Až" ("When"), in which the band looks into the "distant future" of the year 2006: Until today, Oldřich Říha sings that "…we will have factories for trees, artificial grass in front of the houses, prosperity will prevail in the world and we will be able to manufacture almost anything." And then there goes the main line that has become generally popular: "What about the children? Do they have a place to play?"

Olomouc foundry significantly reduces time for prototype production thanks to 3D printing
The Olomouc foundry specialises on cast iron castings up to 6.5 kg produced in larger batches, designed primarily for car, truck and bus manufacturers, construction equipment and air-conditioning units. With increasing customer requirements for reducing delivery times, the normal prototype production time has proven too long and has had to be reduced significantly. Traditional procedures do not permit any acceleration, so we had to find a brand new solution.

UNEX Employees to Head to Southern Slovakia for the Holidays
For several years already, UNEX employees have had the opportunity to visit the local thermal park for recreational or therapeutic stays over holidays as well as throughout the year. The water has a positive effect on joint disorders, diseases of the spine and muscles, and has an overall positive effect on the regeneration of the entire body. The nearby 100-hectare oak forest park is an inviting place for a walk, run, or other activities, and is a unique vestige of the expansive forest that unfolded across the entire Danube lowlands centuries ago.
The UNEX Run charity running project

This year, our runners decided to donate to the activities of the Šance Olomouc association at the Department of Paediatrics of the Medical Faculty Hospital of Olomouc, which helps children suffering from oncological and haematological diseases.
