25 years ago, the HARTING Technology Group opened a subsidiary in Prague, Czech Republic. Since that time, the local HARTING s.r.o. has enjoyed an extremely successful development. This was also a point that Chairman of the Board Philip Harting emphasised during a gala evening celebrated with customers, employees and representatives of the German-Czech Board of Trade in Palais Martinic: “The decision to locate in the Czech Republic was a thoroughly worthwhile step. It quickly became clear to us, after the political changes and upheavals, that this region was a promising market for the future. It was therefore the obvious decision to strengthen our activities in Eastern Europe and, in the course of our internationalisation, which began in 1979, to gain a foothold here as well.” Since then, the country has flourished, so that in the following years the neighbouring countries were also considered for expansion. “Within a few years, starting in 2003, our subsidiaries in Romania, Poland and Hungary were launched – including our recently expanded production facilities in Sibiu and Agnita, Romania, and the newly opened assembly plant in Bydgoszcz, Poland,” Philip Harting continued.

Marek Sucharda, Managing Director HARTING s.r.o., shared Philip Harting’s enthusiasm and added: “Here in the Czech Republic, we are expanding our market share with a committed team and strict customer orientation. Our good market observation and top contact to our customers and users also help us achieve this.”
