VIKTOR Lacquers s.r.o. develops, produces and distributes special heat sealing lacquers, primers, barriers and special lacquers for food and pharmaceutical packaging industry. During 2022 the company changed its owners and its name from the original VIKTOR Trade s.r.o. to VIKTOR Lacquers s.r.o. By this change we want to emphasize that our company not only distributes but also develops and produces special lacquers.
Production extension (1998)
Originally, the company was founded to trade special and recyclable sorts of paper; its tendency towards the production of specialty lacquers, which is exactly what the company is engaged in these days, began back in 1998. Since then, we have been successful in penetrating this specific segment of the packaging industry, i.e. the production of special lacquers. We have launched an intensive development of products that are used for lacquering aluminium foils designed in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. Initially, we co-operated exclusively with Czech customers. Extensive mutual co-operation and the understanding of our needs have been crucial for the development of our products, in terms of practical testing of the newly developed lacquers. The warehouse we rented was gradually turned into a chemical production plant, with the paper trading line steadily diminishing.
New products (2003)
In 2003, our product portfolio was wide enough for us to approach new customers. As part of our effort to build up a new business strategy, a decision was taken to pay attention to the unsaturated, low-competition Central and – in particular – Eastern European markets.
2004 brought – among other things – a successful certification of the Quality Assurance System according to ISO 9001:2001 standard.
Plant purchase (2005)
In 2005, we bought the leased building from the lessor, which had already been changed to a production facility at that time.
Production automation (2006)
In 2006, a major part of the production plant was reconstructed. New offices for our staff, increased storage and production capacity – all that with attention to a safe work enviroment. This project was successfully completed in 2010.
Innovation project (2009-2010)
In between 2009 and 2010, we realized an innovation project as part of what was called The Operation Programme of Enterprise and Innovation. The same innovation subsidy programme took place once again in 2014. Thus, financial means from both the EU Structural Funds and the Czech Government budget were secured, making it possible for us to purchase new state-of-the-art technology for our laboratory.
RTO installation (2014)
In 2014 we installed the RTO system to lower air pollutants.
During 2022 the company changed its owners and its name from the original VIKTOR Trade s.r.o. to VIKTOR Lacquers s.r.o. By this change we want to emphasize that our company not only distrubutes but also develops and produces special lacquers. 2022 brought – among other things – a successful certification of the Quality Assurance System according to ISO 14001:2015 standard. The passion for the development and implementation of even better technical and technological solutions is the engine that drives the successful development of our company, at the same time with the aim of protecting the environment.
In the meantime, the development of new products continued and it is still in progress these days. We successfully continue introducing new products. Today we think it is appropriate to classify our company as an established manufacturer of lacquers for food and pharmaceutical packaging. The number of customers we have, our product portfolio and the production volume keep on rising.
The company has been continuously investing in perfecting its production technology, products quality and higher production capacity. Equally, the laboratory and environmental considerations have been included in our investment plan.
The trend is now towards expanding our existing production with lacquers for coil-coating technologies and also water-based lacquers.
Our lacquers also meet the requirements for food contact.
We deliver our products to various countries around the world. These include the Czech Republic, Croatia, Italy, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Hungary, Egypt, Ukraine, Great Britain, Uzbekistan, Oman, China, South Africa, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Turkey, Switzerland, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Serbia.
