ALU-COLOR Company Ltd. was founded on 26th April 1993 by Václav Hýža and Miroslav Hýža. In the autumn of 1994 they started to build the paint shop, which focused on surface finish of aluminium products. The Company ALU-COLOR Ltd. started varnishing on 31st May 1995 and thus it became the first commercial powder-paint shop in the Czech Republic.
From the beginning the main goal of the company was superior quality of delivered surface finish. This was achieved by using unique technology supplied by PLAMING Podgrad (today TIR Engineering d.o.o.) from Slovenia and by the company WAGNER from Germany. Since the beginning the highest quality materials and colours of facade quality have been used as the key inputs into the implementation process, the colours from the Austrian manufacturer TIGER Coatings GmbH & Co. KG. KG and from the Swiss manufacturer IGP Pulvertechnik AG, and also the chemical pretreatments of the German manufacturer Alufinish GmbH & Co. KG.
In 1998 Ing Rudolf Vjačka became an owner and a manager of ALU-COLOR Ltd.
In 1999 ALU-COLOR Ltd. changed the pre-treatment technology to chromium free no-rinse wash system that is environmentally friendly and at least the same quality. Specifically, this was a replacement of passivating agent, where chromate (containing CrVI) was replaced by titanium passivation. Thanks to the exchange of technology savings of pretreatment van were achieved and thus there was possibility to extend the technology about phosphate bath for
pretreatment of steel.
ALU-COLOR Company Ltd. is constantly improving the quality of the supplied finish coating thanks to the investments in technology, operation buildings, measuring and monitoring equipment. Since 2001, ALU-COLOR Ltd. has implemented the requirements of QUALICOAT norms into the existing management system and it was as the first certified in the Czech Republic according to this standard. The Company ALU-COLOR Ltd. stayed as the only certified paint shop in the Czech Republic until 2009.
