A Great Appreciation for Česká zbrojovka a.s. in the Prestigious EXPORTER OF THE YEAR Contest

CZ has considerable export potential: CZ exports 80 % of its production to nearly 100 countries of the world. Concrete results in export are reflected on a long-term basis in positions covering individual categories of the prestigious annual national contest of the Exporter of the Year. This contest whose results were published in the late 2016 was held this year for 22nd time.

CZ achieved a very good place in five categories thus appearing together with other Czech big exporters at these positions:

  • Exporter of 2015, the Zlín Region: 1st place
  • Export Growth 1993-2015 (large exporters, over CZK 500 mil.): 17th place
  • Export Growth 2014-2015 (large exporters, over CZK 500 mil.): 38th place
  • Export Volume 1993-2015 (exporters over CZK 100 mil.): 29th place
  • Export Volume 2015 (large exporters over CZK 500 mil.): 30th place
  • Award for the development of new export opportunities (exporters over CZK 500 mil.): 2nd place

With these results CZ confirmed that it is justly ranked among the best exporters of the Czech Republic. Moreover the Company compared favourably in competition with large companies such as Škoda Auto, Foxconn, Bosch Siemens Group and others.

The contest was held under auspices of the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic. Traditionally it was organized by the Medium-size Enterprises and the Association for Business Support of the Czech Republic.
