HISTORY AND CURRENT STATUS
MPC System, s.r.o. was established by Messrs. Jan Hrůza, Arnošt Schlemmer and Emil Janča, all highly experienced specialists in industrial automation and management of electrical production, design and supplier services.
Although two of the gentlemen – Jan Hrůza and Arnošt Schlemmer – have passed away, Emil Janča is still actively involved in managing the company.
I was honoured to take part in this major step they took on 1.8.1991. We successfully established our position on the market at the beginning of the 1990s through reconstructions of thermal power stations. We contributed to the construction of the Temelín nuclear power plant and we endorsed as suppliers for nuclear power engineering. We were involved in the reconstruction of water management, the Prague underground, thermal energy management, long-distance belt transport in mining, the transit gas pipeline and telemetric stations.
While completing these projects, we successfully introduced new components and technologies of major foreign companies such as Schneider Electric, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, Wago, Rittal, Schrack into the design and production process.
We became system integrators and applicators of leading control system suppliers such as Allen-Bradley, Modicon, Simatic, Mitsubishi or Wago, including their auxiliary visualisation systems. As the company developed dynamically and expanded to additional regions, branches in Chotěboř, Tušimice, Temelín, Hradec Králové and Trnava were established. The engineering office in Prague grew significantly. We have trained many experts who continue to work in industrial automation and electrical engineering.
Changed economic and market conditions during the following years forced us to reduce some of our activities, seek more effective management methods, reconsider our strategy and adjust to the new, harder market conditions, which begin to emerge at the beginning of the new millennium. We narrowed down the company’s focus, reduced our human resources, created a new organisational structure, moved into our new premises and started working more intensively on promoting and presenting the company at the AMPER trade show. We obtained the ISO 9001 certification and the GOST – R certification allowing us to become a major supplier of electrical components for gas pipeline compressor stations delivered by ČKD PRAHA DIZ, a.s. to the Russian Federation.
Many years of operation and experience in the field has made MPC System, s.r.o. a company offering comprehensive “Supply, Design and Consultancy Services in Electrical Engineering”. These include design, supply and assembly of high and low-voltage equipment, control, information and telemetric systems and field instrumentation, programming and servicing. Our aim is to maintain our high quality of supplies and services, meet the needs of our customers and employees and continue to grow the MPC brand globally with our average annual turnover of CZK 100 million (see the “Production Program/Supply Range” in .pdf).
