Naše první logo:
The company develops its activities in the service of metalworking and forming machines. Its customers are manufacturing engineering companies from the Trenčín region. One of the important events is moving of production technologies from Germany to Slovakia.
Ján changes the company's focus on service. Production, installation, el. machinery and equipment and wiring.
In January, Ján (as a 45-year-old) founded his trade called Ján Lipták registered in Trenčín. The subject of the trade is the breeding of snails.
In Czechoslovakia, after the fall of the socialist regime, there is a time of new opportunities with the possibility of private business. However, the new era also brought uncertainty to the then state-owned enterprises. Therefore, Ján Lipták, a skilled electrician in the company TOS Trenčín, decides whether he will go his own way and be a "master of his happiness". He lacks the expertise, desire to work and enthusiasm for new challenges.
