We are a menber of the BLOCK® Group
The BLOCK® Group brings together companies focusing their complex services, projects and sophisticated deliveries mainly into the clean rooms field. These are especially complete deliveries of investment projects, deliveries of technological units and products to the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, and the development of SW for measurement and regulation. At the customer's request, all deliveries are then validated according to good manufacturing practice (GMP) by a group of our own validation engineers. Warranty and post-warranty support service provided by our own trained technicians then goes without saying for the BLOCK® Group.
The fundamental building block of the whole group became the BLOCK a.s. company that was founded in 1991. The other companies from the group gradually followed. Thanks to partnership and cordial relationships within the group, we are able to offer our customers a wide range of solutions and services.
