The manufacturer and builder of the Czech modular pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan, the Vizovice-based company KOMA Modular, took the award Company of the Year 2015 among competition from over 3000 companies. KOMA received the highly prestigious award in its 23rd year of existence.
It is clear that the general public still needs to become more familiar with modular architecture and construction, however, the Company of the Year 2015 award demonstrates that the Czech Republic has a module manufacturer and builder of modular constructions which finds applications for its work across the globe. In this regard it is somewhat surprising that Vizovice modular constructions are put to use much more frequently abroad than in the Czech Republic. "90% of contracts come from abroad. Modular construction in the Czech Republic is still in its infancy. For that reason we appreciate this award all the more!" adds Stanislav Martinec.
KOMA will go on fighting this situation not only by way of its buildings, but also by popularising modular architecture in general.
