GARNEA, the importer of Doosan construction machinery for the Czech Republic, has celebrated its 30th anniversary. The management of GARNEA has therefore completed three decades of development of the company, which now has fully-fledged divisions for the agricultural, construction and municipal sectors, with plans to take this further.
To mark the milestone, the company also opened a new facility for Doosan machines in Neplachov in the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, at a ceremony in the presence of the European top management of Doosan Infracore. The new facility occupies an area of 750 m2 and is intended for servicing even the largest Doosan machines. It has an entrance adapted for heavy machinery, a bridge crane with a load capacity of 10 tonne, controlled temperature regulation, modern oil management and offers comfortable facilities for employees.
Together with GARNEA management and other important guests, including František Flídr, CEO of GRANITA Lomy, which is one of the first and above all the largest users of Doosan machines in the Czech Republic, Sanho Shin, Director of Strategy and Marketing at Doosan, ceremonially opened the new premises.
Commenting on the event, Sanho Shin said: “Working with GARNEA has exceeded our ambitious expectations. It is incredible how the company has expanded in recent years. We are very pleased with the joint growth in the Czech market. In addition, we have a common philosophy with our importer, which is an emphasis on an aftersales approach to customers.”
Sales of Doosan Equipment in the Czech Market are Growing Rapidly
GARNEA started distributing the Doosan brand in 2019 and this decision to work with the renowned manufacturer has paid off for the company. The son of the founder and a company executive, Václav Baštýř Jr., praises the results that have been achieved: “Thanks to the cooperation with the Doosan brand, our company is growing rapidly. In the last 5 years, GARNEA has doubled in size – we now have 100 employees, 60% of whom are dedicated to aftersales services. In some important segments, such as heavy excavators over 25 tonne, we are doing extremely well – it is no exaggeration to say that every fifth excavator sold carries the Doosan brand!”
