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.
