Among European companies which manufacture industrial bearings, Czech manufacturer ROLEK takes a worthy place in the top ten. First of all, the Company is focused on Western user. But lately the high-quality products of ROLEK began to conquer new markets.
The Company was founded in 1929 in Czech city České Budějovice by Hungarian native Lazlo Goverzsik and Czech Anton Kaśta. Originally the enterprise was called “Kaśta and Partners” and comprised a motor vehicle repair workshop where there was conducted repairs of different machinery and restoration of damaged units and spare parts. In 1932, the partners moved to Prague where they launched manufacture of ball bearings for German and French vehicles.
During the Second World War the Company temporarily ceased to exist. Kaśta emigrated to USA where he also got involved himself in manufacture of mechanical parts. His stay overseas gave a serious boost to development of the Company after return of two sons of Anton Kaśta to their homeland in 1994. It was then that the Company got its name ROLEK sounding like “roller” or “roll”.
Having established the contacts with American industrial enterprises during the years of emigration, the ROLEK founders arranged deliveries of roller- and ball bearings to USA and Canada. The Plant actively developed, and, in 2001, already provided 800 people with workplaces, manufacturing more than 70 names of products.
