Who we are
We are LAKUM Group, your partner for work with metal from a design, production through surface treatment to assembly. LAKUM Group is a common name covering companies LAKUM-KTL, a.s., LAKUM-AP, a.s., LAKUM-GALMA, a.s. and since 2016 also Massag, a.s.
How did it all begin
Our company was established in 1998 in Frýdlant nad Ostravicí, a small town 30 km from Ostrava, as LAKUM-KTL, s.r.o.
Our vision was to offer surface treatment of metals in a high standard. Our first clients were companies operating in automotive industry. Many of them have been cooperating with us up to the present time.
In 2000 we purchased premises of a metal furniture manufacturing company, where we were under a lease so far. Thanks to this acquisition we extended our business to a new area of metal production and, at the same time, we continued with the old tradition in metal processing in Frýdlant nad Ostravicí.
Another four years later, in 2008, a Humpolec based company GALMA a.s. became a member of LAKUM Group, since January 2009 under a name LAKUM – GALMA a.s.
Its history began in 1997 by installation of a drum zinc plating line specially focused on zinc plating of bolts. Two years later a rack suspension zinc plating line was installed in the production hall. This was followed by moving into a new factory for surface treatment in Humpolec industrial zone, Pražská street, and extending the production operations by cataphoresis.
In 2011, X-Ray measuring device was put into running – for highly accurate measurement of layers and measurement of parameters of functional bath on the principle of X-rays.
