We have a rich history

We are a company operating in the industrial sealing market since 1992. Since its foundation, we can boast a rich history.

The first idea was born in 1989

After the revolution in 1989, Zdeněk Pokorný and Kamila decided to embark on a new entrepreneurial journey. Inspired by Zdenek's experience in the field of gaskets, they decided to start a company in this field. The beginnings were modest in their Brno apartment, from where they delivered products to their first customers.

Today we are a renowned company Pokorny industries s.r.o., with our own headquarters, warehouses and production plant in Hodonín. We are a family business with all family members involved with an emphasis on professionalism, honesty and quality. Our aim is to be a reliable partner to our customers, to provide quality products and to contribute to the sustainability of the industry and the reduction of operating costs.
