The company began under modest conditions - two rented workshops and one office. Its advantage, however, was the six founders, who all had a great deal of experience in the development and production of medical equipment. The company’s name is derived from their main product, ecological compressors, abbreviated as – EKOM. “Our compressors are unique due to their oil-less construction. Thanks to an appropriate combination of materials they operate without lubrication oil, which is why the air that they produce is clean, and free of oil vapours and odours,” says engineer Vladimír Bátora explaining the uniqueness of their product.
