OTHER EXPANSION OF THE INTERIOR CONCEPT

We are successful at what we do. However, we want to be one step ahead of others. For that reason we present a new collection of bathrooms, bedrooms, tables and for the first time luxurios collections of HANÁK sofas and chairs.

In the 1930s Josef Hanák led his joinery. The motto of his own small business was “precise processing and quality material” and this one has remained the cornerstone, or in other words the essential philosophy of our company so far.

The modern-day history of the company started to be written in the 1990s by his son, Mr Stanislav Hanák Senior, who continued in his father´s legacy and established SH Kroměříž company in the town of Kroměříž. He still has been working with his son Stanislav Hanák Junior, who is a production manager now.

In 1995 the company moved to Popůvky near Kojetín where it grew larger from the original surface area of 1,200m2 to the truly sizeable one of 35,000m2.

Other important milestones in the history of our company were the foundation of the joint-stock company of HANÁK NÁBYTEK, a.s. in 2000 and opening of the DESIGN CENTRE in Popůvky near Kojetín in 2004.

In 2015 the company celebrated its 25th anniversary of the restoration of its tradition and modern operating on the Czech market. Nevertheless, the furniture of the HANÁK brand is without limits and is sold in more than 16 countries.
