Our family

Krošlák’s story is closely aligned and tied to the fate and ideas of its founder. František Krošlák always believed that a capable person had to be able to earn money and should be fairly compensated for their work. He succumbed to his entrepreneurial spirit in 1991 and established his own company. At this time, the Topoľčany region began selling its furniture manufacturing potential abroad. The young entrepreneur grabbed hold of this opportunity and did not let it slip away. As he himself has said, he was willing to work and had courage. He bought the first hall and started metal production, which, like its later extension to the upholstery department, was a response to current demand.

Foreign customers were demanding, but thanks to this today Krošlák can boast of exceptional quality and reliability of all operating production centres – upholstery, coldfoaming and metal production.
