Tonda Kuzmanič

167472Tonda came to us five years ago from a company producing electrical conductors. He had never seen a forging press in his life. But our initial fears of how the transformation from an electrical conductor assembler to a blacksmith will go were quickly dispelled by Tonda's diligence and willingness to learn new things, and today he has one of the most difficult and responsible jobs in our metal fabrication industry - he is a full-time blacksmith and forger. When you add Tonda's dedication and his eternal optimism, you have one hell of a colleague! Or, as he often says with exaggeration - there's nothing I wouldn't do for a boss's smile and a bonus!

Tonda has become an integral part of our company, a friend, a partner and a support and we are very happy to have him. 

Outside of SINGING ROCK, Tonda enjoys spending time with his two children, his wife and his bees. He rushes home from his morning shifts, where he swaps his blacksmith's apron for a chef's apron and Tonda the blacksmith becomes Tonda the MasterChef, who doesn't shy away from complicated recipes for delicious distilled fruit drinks.
