Tonda, Radka and Petra

We have started a series of medallions, in which we would like to introduce some people from our Singing Rock crew. Meet Tonda from our metal fabrication workshop and the Kočárek sisters who can do magic with a sewing machine.

Tonda Kuzmanič

167244Tonda 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.

167245In 4.5 years in SINGING ROCK Tonda forged:

  • 9 082 carabiners
  • 13 778 ice axe heads
  • 83 767 arbo rings
He forged more than 25,000 ice axe picks, 16,000 pairs of crampons, thousands of pitons and tons of other hardware. He is responsible for the strength of tens of tons of aluminum products and semi-finished products.

Radka and Petra, the Kočárek sisters

167246Radka: "I found myself standing in front of the SINGING ROCK gates about 26 years ago. Thanks to that I have seen the world, mountains and rocks. And despite some occasional drudgery, my job is interesting and varied. But most of all, there is a great team here!
A lot has changed and moved on in almost 30 years. Apart from the early days with backpacks (and there were some), I've probably spent the most time with the Attack and Zenith sport harnesses. Those hours could be counted in the thousands...
I'm a girl from Giant Mountains at heart and soul, and going (or running) up a hill is always a great experience for me, in any season"

167247In SINGING ROCK "Raduza" is considered a reliable, smiling hard worker always willing to help.
She is one of our original core employees who share the same passion for our work and who not only worked manually, but also invented and co-created the company culture after hours. She is simply an integral part of the Singing Rock company, like... like Attack! :)

167248Petra is a great athlete whose sewing machine has metamorphosed into a Spartan race medal rack :)). But she is just as consistent and efficient when it comes to working in the sewing workshop. For example, 700 beautiful purple Rocket harnesses have passed under her hands in the last two years :)
Apart from running, Petra is also a firefighter, she rides a bike, skates, rides horses – in short, she loves movement, freedom and friends - and that's what working in SINGING ROCK is all about for her :)

Radka and Petra were followed to SINGING ROCK by their sister Šárka whom we will introduce to you maybe some other time.
