The construction design and engineering organisation Keramoprojekt Trenčín was founded in 1951 as part of the Brno-based national enterprise Keramoprojekt with offices in Prague and Trenčín.
The formation of the company resulted from the need to speed up the development of the material and technical base for the construction industry in Czechoslovakia. This company’s focus was the design of plants for the manufacturing of building materials and ceramics.
In 1953, following a change in its organisational structure, the national enterprise was transformed into the Keramoprojekt State Design Institute based in Prague. Keramoprojekt Brno and Keramoprojekt Trenčín continued to operate as the Institute’s offices until 1958, when a separate institute with competence for the whole of Slovakia was founded in Trenčín through a decree of the Ministry of Construction.
After the organisational changes at the beginning of 1964, the specialisations of Keramoprojekt’s individual design institutes were as follows:
At the end of 1968, an implementation centre was set up at Keramoprojekt Trenčín as an engineering services centre.
In 1969, Keramoprojekt became an organisation of the Ministry of Construction in Bratislava. It was in charge of the design documentation for all plants manufacturing building materials. 360 highly qualified personnel were engaged in design and budgeting work in close collaboration with experts from universities, research institutes and specialists from supplier organisations.
Many manufacturing complexes completed both at home and abroad provide a testimony of KERAMOPRJEKT’s excellent results:
Since 1.5.1992, Keramoprojekt Trenčín has been a privately owned joint-stock company. Construction design is no longer the company’s focus as its design and engineering activities have been taken over by the new company PIO KERAMOPROJEKT a.s. since 9.7.1999.
With its highly creative personnel, contacts and entrepreneurial capital, PIO Keramoprojekt is building on dozens of years of experience.
Thanks to its extraordinary innovative potential, the new company expanded its design and engineering activities to include the area of bank buildings, administrative and operational buildings, multi-purpose buildings and challenging civil engineering structures, such as bridges and roads.
