Companies in the Group
The roots of our companyIn 1997 – a few years after the Velvet Revolution, we started as a small manufacturing company, the Family Company Plast-K s.r.o. (Jiří Homola and Josef Homola). We were engaged in the production of plastic parts, of which there was an acute shortage. On the old handheld CS machines, we made various small window parts at home in the garage, such as blanking plugs, pins, door panels, or even car turn signals. Later, Josef Homola, a member of our team, began to gain experience with his father in the production and management of the company. He was at the birth of one of the first 3D printers and thus expanded the company’s portfolio by a service considered to be unique at that time.
Creation of the REFORK projectSince the beginning of the project, we have seen a huge problem with plastic waste and its environmental impact. On this basis, we have decided to start researching materials that allow easy recycling, and especially the circular flow of raw materials in nature. We have begun intensive research on materials and how to produce them. In our research department, we have developed a unique combination of materials, thanks to which the developed material decomposes in nature. We named the whole project related to the production and distribution of naturally degradable materials as REFORK.
