That’s us at SINGING ROCKThe great group of people who create the true SINGING ROCK culture is the priceless benefit for most of us who work at the company. We develop and manufacture gear for the vertical world as if it were for us. Most of the manufacturing is handmade and so thousands of finished products or their parts pass through our hands. Over the course of 30 years of SINGING ROCK, many people have taken turns at the machines and computers but some of them have been here almost from the beginning. We'd like to introduce you to some of our crew without whom your harness, carbiner or ice axe would never see the light of day.
We currently have 20 pieces here (more will be added gradually). Click on them to find out more.
Tonda Kuzmanič came to us five years ago from a company producing electrical conductors. He had never seen a forging press in his life :)
Radka and Petra, the Kočárek sisters. At SINGING ROCK "Raduza" is considered a reliable, smiling hard worker always willing to help. Petra is a great athlete whose sewing machine has metamorphosed into a Spartan race medal rack :))
Veronika Hajná: "What I enjoy most is sewing the complex badass Arbo Master harnesses. About 60 pieces pass under my hands every month, from the first strength stitch to the last hem!"
Tomáš Řehák: "This is my seventh summer working at SR as a mechanic, my biggest hobby is Jawa vintage motorcycles."
Blanka Havrdová: "I'm a sewing workshop forewoman and a specialist for complex projects. I spend a lot of time making samples or problematic products."
Iveta Hélová has been with us for 18 years and during that time she has been through everything. Today her most frequent job is pressing steel lanyards.
Milan Koncoš resembles a fallen rock angel thnks to his long blonde hair and face perpetually black with graphite, which fits well with his musician and art soul.
Petra Hásová has been the heart and head of our completing workshop for the tenth year. She catches up and saves troubles with total commitment.
Petra Šubrtová is a vital cog in the gears of our plant to keep it running as it should. Her imprint is on a large part of regulations and production documentation.
Tomáš Lukášek: "I landed at SR fifteen years ago. I'm in the final inspection of carbiners, helmets and other products. It sounds impossible, but I've inspected over 7,000,000 of them!"
Eva Čurdová, as a master seamstress in the sewing workshop in Poniklá, glues the whole team together and if there were a Sewing Olympics her team would surely excel.
Lenka Chlupáčová: I started at SR 26 years ago as a temporary worker during the holidays and I bought my first mountain bike with my fee!
Blanka Stěhulová has been workingat SR for 30 years and she has made thousands of products in those three decades. She is respected and appreciated for her experience and diligence.
Šárka Sůvová joined SR right after her apprenticeship as a seamstress so today she has been with us for fifteen years. She gradually moved to the completion department where she uses her extensive experience.
Petr Medek. During his 28 years at SR, he has experienced the entire evolution of the company and professionally he has gone through a "movie-like" path: from worker to production manager.
Lubomír Mahdal is our new master of climbing hardware production, he joined us last year.
Mirek Matějec is a climbing fanatic! Whether it's sandstone climbing, overhangs, ice climbing, mix climbing or drytooling, Míra just loves to climb!
Martin Horák has been working at SR for so long that we don't even remember how. He's our most experienced developer.
Lumír Fajkoš is our sales representative. He offers and sells things that he uses himself in the rocks.
Jan Zámečník: "What I enjoy the most is when we have a really great product that we support with nice marketing and we get great feedback."
We'll introduce you more Singing Rock people in the coming days and weeks. Stay tuned ;)
