ing hours. Around 250,000 manufacturing hours in
Slovakia are accrued producing components, assembly
groups and complete machines. Of those, 60 per cent of
the overall manufacturing capacity is for the HF MIXING
‘We have transformed ourselves from a company which
almost exclusively supplied products as an extended
workbench of the glass industry into a company working
for a modern and financially healthy group of compan-
ies which earns its money manufacturing machinery. It
is an opportunity for our employees to work in a stable
production environment without constantly having to
ask themselves what the future holds,’ summarises
Mario Chudy, commercial manager of HF NaJUS.
HF NaJUS is a company with a long tradition: when it
was founded in 1929 its main focus was on the produc-
tion of appliances and tools. There followed a period of
more than 80 years during which the activities of the
company were rather chequered. It was most recently
involved in the glass industry and responsible for over-
hauling measures and producing spare parts for the
parent company. In addition, the then ZTS-LR NaJUS
a.s. served a market of external customers as a sup-
plier of components, assembly groups and machinery.
That was also the origins of the cooperation with the HF
MIXING GROUP. HF NaJUS is set to continue serving
the market for external customers and specialise in
certain product groups in the third-party business.
However, the main focus will be on manufacturing com-
ponents and special machinery for the group. In addi-
tion, it will also produce CONVEX™ machines for
Pomini Rubber & Plastics. The latest member of the
group is set to use 60 per cent of its capacity for the HF
MIXING GROUP in future and make 40 per cent avail-
able to external customers. ‘In terms of procurement
we noticed an immediate difference after NaJUS
merged with the HF MIXING GROUP,’ reports procure-
ment manager Roman Baláz. ‘Our suppliers immedi-
ately showed a greater interest in the company, which
was also reflected in the delivery periods. Internally, I
have also noticed positive changes in the thinking and
attitudes of our colleagues, which is undoubtedly due
to the fact that visible and tangible investments have
been made in the company,’ says the procurement
HF NaJUS is positive about the future. Around 300
committed employees work at the Dubnica site in Slov-
akia – 215 in production and the remaining 85 in ad-
ministration. On an area covering some 20,000 square
metres, the production halls employ people in the areas
of welding, smaller and medium-sized mechanical en-
gineering, major mechanical engineering and assembly
work. A broad range of modern machinery provides the
ideal conditions for producing high-quality components
for the HF MIXING GROUP machines. Opportunities for
expansion may be possible in the event of further posit-
ive growth. There are also some very well-known names
among the customers outside the HF MIXING GROUP,
including Brückner, Federal Mogul, Neuenhauser Um-
welttechnik, BWG, Bronx and Andritz AG.
‘We are convinced that we will satisfy our new clients
within the HF MIXING GROUP just as much as we have
satisfied our external customers in the past. We will be
a reliable member of the big HF family,’ says Mario
Chudy, commercial manager. ‘As the latest experience
shows: we are mixing well together!’
