About us

A family firm with a responsible approach to our clients, employees and the wider society

“I founded the company out of an admiration for technology and a desire to get close up and personal with it. With enthusiasm and hard work we have managed to build up a stable, healthy company with a strong base."

All our staff are carefully selected for their exceptional feel for technology, which is what sets our team apart. We believe that this sixth sense of ours enables us to spot opportunities and possibilities, and transform those into solutions. We feel it is our duty to use this sixth sense to help extend the bounds of our clients’ imagination and constantly offer products and services that exceed their expectations.

We pride ourselves on our client-centred approach, on the quality of our work, on our continual training, and on our pursuit of excellent working conditions. We enable every member of our company to develop their skills and talents, follow their intuitions and do their bit to help the team as a whole present our clients with high value-added, cutting-edge solutions.

Our 6th sense for technology

We have a sixth sense when it comes to understanding technology, thanks to which we can make maximum use of our other five senses. We see new opportunities for development, hear our clients’ wishes, feel our way right to the core of each commission, never lose our appetite for growth and progress, and maintain a very tangible desire to achieve absolute perfection.

What our clients say
about us


“We commissioned a fully automated assembly and testing line for several types of water valve. The work was carried out to our complete satisfaction. At every stage of the project, the collaboration was extremely smooth. We particularly valued the Krofian project team’s professional approach, right from the initial enquiry when, before presenting their estimate, they first held a series of constructive and fruitful meetings, working with us to come up with an efficient and rational build design for the line. Krofian was able to meet all our requirements for the commissioned line and incorporate subsequent changes that arose during the course of the project. They built and installed a top-quality production line with a well-thought-out design.”

“We would like to thank you for these years of successful collaboration, and most of all for your constructive approach to solving our technical needs. We highly appreciate your professional and fair approach and the effort you always put in to finding the most efficient solution to meet our current needs. We will be happy to place our confidence in you again for our future projects and we trust that our collaboration will continue develop to even greater mutual satisfaction.”

“We commissioned a fully automated assembly and testing line for table water dosing valves in several colour variants. Since these are for use in the food industry, high demands were placed on cleanliness and hygiene during assembly, which Krofian’s chosen design and incorporated components met. The successful integration of this line into serial production was largely a result of the excellent collaboration with the whole Krofian project team, the technical solution they proposed and their willingness to resolve every challenge that arose. This first successful project also led to the subsequent commission of a second assembly line. Krofian will be our preferred supplier of assembly lines for our future projects.”

“Working with Krofian was a great success. The company stands out for its highly professional project team and for the excellent quality of the equipment it delivers. We were also very impressed with the in-warranty and out-of-warranty service they provide. Krofian will be our preferred supplier of machinery and production lines for any future orders.”
