ERA obtained a silver medal in The Czech Company of the Year competition
ERA obtained a silver medal in The Czech Company of the Year competition. In a broad competition involving 3,600 companies, ERA scored second best in the final. They were one of the 14 regional finalists after winning the title Company of the Year in its own region. The winner was the company Frentech Aerospace from Brno producing precise components for satellites. As the Managing director Viktor Sotona pointed out at the award ceremony in Prague: “ERA is a producer of air traffic management technologies, so it sounds logical it was only defeated by a company producing equipment used in the cosmos.”
The silver medal crowned a remarkable year of public recognition for ERA. The company received several other awards: The Most Successful Company of the Pardubice Region, The 100 Top Stable Companies of the Czech Republic, The Corporate Responsibility Award and The Building of the Year for its new headquarters.
The Company of the Year competition and the related Tradesman of the Year are organized by the Czech main daily, the newspaper Hospodářské noviny (Economic News) and supported by the international mobile operator Vodafone and the country’s oldest and most respected bank Česká spořitelna. The companies have to be nominated by local authorities or institutions, ERA was nominated by the trade and investment agency CzechInvest.
