Czech Republic – Karviná
The Karviná operations (formerly known as Jäkl Karviná) have a long tradition, producing longitudinal welded products for the mechanical industry since 1929. In addition Karviná has successfully entered the automotive market producing high-quality longitudinal welded colddrawn and cold-sized tubular products. Located in the eastern Czech province of Moravia, it is convenient for distribution in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, as well as Northern and Western Europe. Our annual combined capacity is equal to 51,000 tons. Our facilities include tube mills, annealing furnaces, cold-drawing benches, and machines for cutting and chamfering. For tubemaking, we make use of a hotstretched reduction process, which gives the product homogenous properties. We also make tubular products on cold sizing lines within narrow tolerances.
