PŘÍHODA s.r.o. belongs to the leading and largest manufacturer of fabric ducting and diffusers in the world! This company, which was established in 1994, is still owned and managed by its founder Zdeněk Příhoda. The company has undergone significant development over the years of its existence, as have the products it makes. From the first three machines and two sewers in a leased workshop, to over 120 employees working on tens of modern sewing machines in three company-owned factory buildings. Laser machines for cutting openings became essential and ultrasonic machines for cleanly welding fabrics have also recently become necessary. In both cases this concerns single-purpose, specially developed technology.
They chose the symbol of a butterfly for the company, for several reasons. The first is to differentiate them from manufacturers of traditional metal ducts, which are grey and heavy, whereas their product is light and colorful. The ease associated with a butterfly’s flight corresponds well with the ease of transport and installation of their products. The butterfly is also a suitable symbol for their ecological determination expressed by incorporating fabric made from 100% recycled fibers.
