A tornado has hit Czechia

Yesterday evening a deadly tornado hit the south of Czechia leaving destruction, fatalities, and numerous injured along its path.


We have employees living in the most affected areas  and they are as far as we know at this point in time, safe and all well. We have recieved reports of extensive damage to properties and infrastructure. We are in contact with our employees and are supporting them the best we can.


We are also in contact with authorities and other organizations offering our support.


The plant in Hustopece hasn’t been affected, but was running out of electricity yesterday. We will work more flexible today in order to let people help and care their families as well as decrease risk of travelling due to damaged infrastructure.


We continue to follow the development closely and hope that fatalities and injured will not increase further.
