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.
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?"
Open House 2019
The traditional Open House at UNEX's Uničov plant has once again attracted a large number of visitors young and old this year, giving them the opportunity to tour the manufacturing facilities of the Uničov plant, enjoy themselves at the accompanying programme, and sample a wide range of delicious food and drink for highly affordable prices.

Charity punch with UNEX raises nearly CZK 50,000
‘Three Brothers’ and a total of eight young ladies wrapped in many layers of clothing, including scarves and caps in corporate yellow – this was the foundation for the success of the Olomouc Christmas punch event with UNEX, during which the stand for the organisation Dobré misto pro život (A Good Place for Life) collected CZK 48,105. The proceeds will be sent to the account of the Olomouc branch of the Czech Unified Organisation of the Blind and Visually-Impaired (SONS).
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.
