About our business
Year 1990 represents changes in our society and break-up of huge concern companies including the Heavy Industry Company ZŤS. In the same year the Electrotechnical Research and Development Institute, a state owned company, is created from the research and development department of ZŤS. EVPÚ is then transformed to the joint-stock company in the year 1994. The company builds-up its existence on the tradition in the field of research and development.
EVPÚ holds an important position within the Slovak electrotechnical industry.
The company policy is clearly stated – high standard of products and services offered to Slovak and foreign partners.
Reaching this target goes by the optimal connection of research, development, production and testing into one functioning process with qualified and experienced personnel as its driving force.
International demand for EVPÚ production has resulted in an establishment of subsidiares and several foreign representatives. A subsidiary company EVPÚ ZVS joint stock company in Dubnica nad Váhom with focus on mechanical and electrical production was established in 1996. The commercial representation, EVPÚ ČR Limited, was established two years later. This company is actively involved in the sales of electro components for railway program. A subsidiary company, EVPÚ Defence Limited was established in 2001. EVPÚ Defence succesfully provides support in sales and production with main focus on the production in the security program.
The research was focused on rectifiers, fixed frequency inverters, frequency converters and contactless switches. These solutions were used in automatic electric drives, in electric traction, in energetics and for providing uninterrupted feeding of computers or other machines in the area of electrohydraulics and so on. The power electronics has become one of the main programs in the Czechoslovak industry.
Less than 20 years ago, the working group, originally consisting of 15 members, was gradually extended to the total of 1800 employees providing research, development and production of electronic equipments. Together with products development were ensured also development of production technologies and testing machines, which create a needful base of quality to produce complicated electronic products.
The testing centre, as a part of Electrotechnical Research Institute, acquired the authorisation in 1994. Already during the construction of the testing centre through various equipments, measuring and computer techniques could be performed all necessary tests and calculations. The testing centre was equipped with devices where was possible to perform climatic tests and electric tests.
