Over the past 30 years, we have become a modern, dynamic industrial company, specializing in the production of plastic parts with added value and in metalworking. We have thrived in both the Czech and international markets, continuing to develop the original vision of our founder, Slavoj Čegan, to build a Czech family company based in Šlapanice near Brno.

Our work is based on development and cultivation of long-term business-supplier relationships and partnerships, as well as on taking good care of our employees. We believe that innovation and creative ability to adapt flexibly to changing market environments and customer requirements are essential for further development or our own development. We strive to find new solutions and to put our knowledge into practice. The result of our work is a range of products that we have not only developed, tested, and patented, but also successfully brought to the market. The high technical level of our entire team is a testament to our innovation.

Among our main values are social responsibility and equal opportunities. Colleagues with disabilities are valuable members of our team at all levels of the organization. Since 2002 we have been a member of the Association of Employers of the Disabled in the Czech Republic (AZZP ČR), and within our capacities, we offer our business partners the supply of products and services in the form of facultative compensation.

Our Motto: People with disabilities can add the same value to a product as those without. None of us is as smart as all of us together.

Another part of our strategy is the focus on efficient use of renewable resources and recycled materials. Our (current) photovoltaic power plant (0.6 MWp) covers approximately 20 % of the annual electricity consumption of the plant. We utilize waste heat from production for heating, and we use recycled materials for a portion of our product portfolio.

The Čegan company was founded in 1991 by Slavoj Čegan to focus on the sale of building materials and later on the production of plastic building hardware under the trade name Holar.

The company continued to develop, and the existing rented production spaces were no longer sufficient. In 2000, a modern industrial production and storage hall (1,500 m2) was built for the production of industrial plastic parts and locksmith products.

In response to customer demands and the need to streamline the production process and the quality management system, ISO 9001 was implemented in 2001.

In the following years, the company started to focus on the automotive industry. In 2004, it obtained the ISO/TS 16946 certification to begin the first deliveries of automotive parts in 2005.

Another part of Čegan’s strategy is the utilization of renewable natural resources is also part of Čegan's strategy. In line with this strategy a photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of 0.264 MWp was put into operation in 2009 and 2010 on an area of 1 hectare.

An additional hall (1000 m2) was built to accommodate the continuous growth of the BERA program production. At the same time, an injection molding machine with a clamping force of 600 tons was acquired. The grand opening of the new production hall took place in 2015 and was attended by our business partners and the then Prime Minister, Bohuslav Sobotka.

Following the injection molding technology, the aluminum coating of plastic parts was introduced in 2016. These parts are mainly used in the automotive industry for headlight production. The vacuum coating technology was implemented in Čegan in 2016, along with an ARZUFFI vacuum coating chamber.

In 2017, automation and robotization of individual workstations were initiated as part of the ongoing process of increasing production efficiency.
Timeline image
In 2018, a more modern aluminum coating system, AEZUFFI, was acquired, and the IATF 16949 certification was successfully implemented.

One aspect of supplying the automotive industry is the need to store finished parts, semi-finished products, and special packaging. The storage capacity was expanded by an additional 1000-pallet warehouse space in the new Warehouse II. In 2019, a new injection molding machine, Engel 220t, was also acquired.

In 2020, another injection molding machine, Arburg 460t, equipped with a 6-axis KUKA robot, was added. A QR code system was implemented to streamline the material flow management.

In addition to the production areas, the tool shop and associated workplaces also needed expansion. In 2021, Hall III was constructed. Furthermore, an Arburg 400t injection molding machine and two Zhafir 360t machines, equipped with 6-axis KUKA robots, were acquired.

In 2022, another rooftop photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of 0.3 MWp was commissioned, and a second coating unit was acquired (BÜHLER).

In 2023, we invested in new production equipment and high-performance cooling technology worth over 2.5 million CZK. We wish our company and all our business partners a great success in the coming years.
