Welcome to the website of the UNEX metallurgical and engineering group, a world-known manufacturer of bucket wheel excavators, an experienced supplier of heavy engineering components, a long-term partner of numerous multinational industrial corporations and a major employer in the region.
The UNEX engineering-metallurgical complex has already been helping for 70 years to create a tradition of Czechoslovak heavy engineering. The experience and expertise of the people; together with modern technologies, robotised and automated workplaces, a number of heavy machine tools and extensive production facilities enable to efficiently produce high quality products for various industries according to drawings and requirements of the most demanding customers.
Thanks to its own engineering shops, paint shops, foundries and forging shop, UNEX is able to deliver a wide range of heavy steel structures, including assembly, final machined castings and forgings. More than 2 thousand experts work in three plants in Uničov, Olomouc and Slovak Snina. UNEX exports most of its production all over the world.
Organizational changes in UNEX
The year 2020 was supposed to be the year of celebrating 70th anniversary of UNEX’s production, but instead we had the coronavirus pandemic and many coronavirus restrictions and bans, which has had a negative impact not only on our company and our employees but also on the life in the Czech Republic as well as abroad. In order to maintain production and to remain competitive, UNEX had to make necessary organizational changes in the form of administration downsizing, setup changes and streamlining of the procedural structure of the company.
Punching with UNEX yield exceeded CZK 50,000
Approximately CZK 3500 more, compared to last year, brought the sale of punch at the Good Place for Life booth at the Christmas market in Olomouc. Exactly CZK 51,640 was collected in favour of the Olomouc branch of the United Organization of the Blind and Visually Impaired of the Czech Republic (SONS)!
Athletic Autumn at UNEX
While Mother Nature is beginning its preparations for its winter hibernation, for athletes, autumn is the time of year when they can show off what they’ve been working on and training for all summer. And so we too decided to organise several athletic events for our employees - each of them could choose an activity or activities that are dearest to their heart.
