ISOTRA company history
In 1992, two brothers-in-law, Bohumír Blachut and Erich Stavař, decided to set up their own business in their home village of Bolatice near Opava. They started in a garage, establishing a company they named ISOTRA. ISO came from the word for insulation and TRA from trade, as they were originally involved in the trade and installation of window sealing. Much has changed since then, but the company’s identity remains the same. In 1993, they started dealing in the current product line – window blinds. Always seeking to improve their products, and reacting to the current market demand, they decided, in 1995, to start production of their own blinds and components, with continuous expansion of the shading product line.
Direction of development
What sets ISOTRA apart from its competition is primarily the fact that the company is able to develop a completely new, customised product from A to Z. This comprises designing, manufacture of the individual components, testing and certification of the new product, setting up the technological processes, developing new machinery, and supplying the complete technology. The company holds patents for a number of things, at high standards of excellence. The technologies, production processes, as well as research and development in solar shading make ISOTRA one of the leading producers of sun-shading products and a technological leader not only in the Czech Republic.
