Czech Business Superbrands 2019 Award for ELKO EP from Holešov
The Czech Superbrands Brand Council's Expert Committee awarded the prestigious Czech Business Superbrands 2019 to ELKO EP, one of the world's leading manufacturers of electronic devices for home, office and industrial automation. ELKO EP thus ranked among the most famous and most successful brands on the Czech market.
Following the nomination, which is based on business results, the Brand Council, an expert group of marketing specialists, professional organizations and brand valuation experts, decides the Business Superbrands awards. The consumer and business Superbrands of the year represent the absolute top of the competition and can serve as an example of the successful development of the brand on the Czech market.
“This award is proof that we have been on the right track to the satisfaction of our customers for over a quarter of a century, which is our priority”, says Jiří Konečný, CEO and founder of ELKO EP. "The award is not only for us, but also for our customers and business partners, confirming the quality of our products and solutions, which are of interest worldwide, but also a challenge for the future to keep up with the high standards of quality and innovation."
The Czech Business Superbrands 2019 award confirms ELKO EP's strong position, which develops, manufactures and tests its products on its own premises and laboratories. ELKO EP has its own branches in 13 countries and exports its products to more than seventy countries. It is also one of the largest employers in the region.
The proof of the first-class quality and reliability of ELKO EP products lies in the fact that it adapts and develops its products and produces them for other world-renowned brands such as Siemens, ABB, Eaton, Schneider Electric, ETI and others. In the Czech Republic, ELKO EP covers 85% of the relay market, and is the second largest producer in Europe. ELKO EP is also a supplier of complex solutions for intelligent electrical installations under its own brand iNELS.
"With Superbrands, we honestly admire and honour the selected companies and their achievements in building a successful brand," says András Wiszkidenszky, Superbrands Director for the Czech Republic. The most important goal of Superbrands is not only to pay tribute to the most successful brands, but also to bring these extraordinarily strong brands on the Czech market into the spotlight of consumers, professional and the general public and to present examples worthy of follow-up for market participants who would like to develop and inspire the best.
Superbrands is the most respected independent global authority in the area of brand recognition and valuation. The Supebrands title is a sign of special status and recognition of the brand's excellent position on the local market. The Superbrands seal recognises brands with outstanding reputations with excellent customer care, value and personal relationship with them. Since its establishment in the UK, the project has gained worldwide recognition and today the Superbrands Award is recognized as a special award that, based on unified criteria and methods, annually identifies the best of the best brands in nearly 90 countries on five continents.
