About us

We are a dynamic Czech company with a multinational institutional shareholder and we belong to leading world manufacturers of steel radiators. The quality of our radiators has been verified during the 50 year history by more than 30 million customers worldwide. Our philosophy is to offer a complete heating solution and satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding customers.

Our core product range is steel panel radiators RADIK, towel rail radiators KORALUX, design radiators KORATHERM and a complete range of KORADO convectors. We are constantly extending our product range with new radiator models and also with completely new technologies and products. This trend has been confirmed by a successful acquisition of the company LICON HEAT, s.r.o., thanks to which our product range has been extended with a complete range of floor, bench, wall and special convectors. Another new project is a launch of local ventilation and heat recovery units which will significantly extend the product portfolio of our company.

Our vision

Our long-term strategy is to offer a complete heating solution with the emphasis on modern energy saving products and systems which combine an eco-friendly approach with energy savings for the customer. Our aim is to extend our product range with new technologies and products and determine the trends in the world of heating.

Research and development

Our aim is to ensure the maximum quality of production and outstanding technical parameters of our products therefore we employ leading Czech as well as foreign technical experts in the segment of technical and design development and co-operate e.g. with the Technical University in Liberec. Thanks to that we can regularly extend our production range, innovate the existing products and improve their technical, utility and aesthetic parameters. Further on we co-operate with many Czech as well as foreign external specialists and professional associations. Thanks to a regular contact with both professionals and end customers we have an important feedback and practical experience which we consequently apply in our technical development and production. Our effort is to listen to the requirements of our clients and do our best to accommodate them.

ecology and environmental protection

A consistent emphasis on environmental protection even in the design phase of the new production plant ranked us among the most eco-friendly and energy saving manufacturers in the engineering industry not just in the Czech Republic but also in the broader European context. This is testified  for example by energy-saving heat recovery during the production process, comprehensively designed project of waste management, handling of chemicals, prevention of serious accidents or a detailed examination of waste water. Every year we carry out detailed audits of all production processes associated with environmental protection.

Production companies

KORADO, a.s.

In 1996 and 1997 we built up a new production plant for radiators RADIK and KORALUX. This factory built with an investment exceeding 3 billion CZK (more than 100 million EUR) belongs to the most modern factories of this kind in whole Europe. The uniqueness of this plant, which quickly became a dominating feature of the whole region, was proven by a prestigious prize "The Building of the Year" which KORADO was awarded in 1998. During 2007 KORADO started the implementation of the fourth production line and related technologies. This investment of about 700 million CZK (about 25 million EUR) is the second largest investment in the history of KORADO and it brought not only higher production efficiency but also an increase of the production capacity.

In 2010 and 2011 we made another investment into the installation of a new technology of capillary soldering of towel rail radiators KORALUX with the aim to produce and supply a larger number of towel rail radiators with even a higher quality.

The main production program of the plant in Česká Třebová is steel panel radiators RADIK, towel rail radiators KORALUX and design radiators KORATHERM.

LICON HEAT s.r.o.

The successful acquisition of the company LICON HEAT, s.r.o., carried out on 1st October 2013, was an important step towards even a stronger position of KORADO on the European market. With this step we extended our product portfolio with a complete range of floor, bench, wall and special convectors. The integration of the company LICON HEAT into KORADO Group is an important step in our long-term strategy to invest into innovative and progressive technologies and new products and product lines which will satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding customers.

These are manufactured in a similar range as in the mother factory and they are supplied to south-east Europe.
