Vítkovice Machinery Group to open London office

The largest Czech machinery firm, Vítkovice Machinery Group, will open an office in London later this year, the company firm said in a press release on Tuesday. Vítkovice Machinery Group would like to boost its sales of hi-tech machinery components for the energy and nuclear sectors. The company, which would like to expand their exports from last year’s 12 billion to 13 billion crowns in 2014, sees the UK as one of potentially growing markets, the firm’s trade manager, Břetislav Nitka, said.
