On 18 April 1991, the original founders Petr Hrdina and Frantisek Smid bring their vision of high-performance packaging to life with the founding of the eponymous design company "Hrdina and Smid".
On July 1, 1992, VELTEKO s.r.o. was established on the basis of an agreement between the original founders and Pavel Chvojka. Its first home was a leased production hall that measured 12 x 12 m.
The seeds of VELTEKO’s phenomenal future growth have officially been planted.
The first product that came to market from VELTEKO s.r.o. was the HS series of linear dosers (HS 313).
A year later, the first vertical packaging machine was created – the HSV 100.
In 1994, the property where the current VELTEKO headquarters are located was purchased. Construction of the production hall started immediately afterwards.
VELTEKO s.r.o. presented its products for the first time at international exhibitions that same year.
In 1996, construction of the first production hall was successfully completed and the upgraded intermittent vertical packaging machine – the HSV 101 – was launched. The first continuous vertical packaging machine - the HSV 200 - was brought to market two years later.
In 1997, the idea of VERSATILITY was brought to life, when the first versatile machine was launched under the name HSV101B- FLEXIBLE.
To be closer to their customers abroad, VELTEKO subsidiaries were established in 1999 in Poland (VELTEKO Polska) and in 2001 in Russia (VELTEKO Rus).
In 2001, VELTEKO was one of the first manufacturers in the world to introduce a dual-tube continuous vertical machine - the HSV 220.
In 2000, VELTEKO made its first appearance at the important European exhibition INTERPACK in Düsseldorf, Germany.
In 2005, the first intermittent vertical packaging machine was built for the creation of standard DOYPACK bags – the HSV 102. Its function was then expanded one year later to include application of a zipper. Due to customer demand for increased packaging speeds, VELTEKO started to create these bags on their HSV101B-CONTI continuous packaging machines in 2008.
During 2006, VELTEKO began using powerful industrial computers to control all of its packaging machines.
Between 2010 and 2012, VELTEKO had more than 70 employees. With its cutting-edge technology, the company launched the new HSV 360 series of vertical packaging machines in 2010. VELTEKO's rapid growth prompted the construction of a new state-of-the-art building to house their research & development and sales departments. During that same period, production began on their US 100 packaging and sealing machine, as well as their HSV 440 vertical packaging machine going through further evolutionary changes.
In 2014, a new corporate identity and logo were introduced.
Another new product in 2014 was the HSV280A-STEP/CONTI series of vertical packaging machines, which replaced the previous HSV101B series.
In 2015, the specially designed HSV210-SLIM packaging machine was launched for customers with demanding requirements for packaging snacks and small pieced products in high-quality pillow bags.
In 2016, the very first workshop for the VELTEKO sales team and distributor network was held at VELTEKO headquarters in Vlasim, Czech Republic. The meeting was aimed at further improving the promotion, sales and service of VELTEKO packaging machines abroad.
2017 stands out as the year when new, advanced VELTEKO technologies were introduced, which were reflected as a physical representation of a functional heart. The heart was not only a perfect reflection of these technologies, but also perfectly demonstrated the passion and enthusiasm that brought these technologies to life.
In 2018, a new production hall was built and inaugurated.
In 2019, the innovative VERSATILE-360-B stainless steel packaging machine and the DUPLEX-360 dual-tube machine were launched. A second workshop for the VELTEKO sales team and distributor network was also held at VELTEKO headquarters in Vlasim..
2020 - The DOYPACK-360 and PRIME-360 vertical packaging machines are launched.
2021 - VELTEKO celebrates 30 years on the market and is diligently working to develop a new, highly advanced vertical packaging machine.
