ABRA SOFTWARE

Abra Software belongs to the technology group Abra Holding with Czech background and German capital.

Its information system serves entrepreneurs as a valuable comprehensive platform that collects data from the entire company. Thus, entrepreneurs can plan and automate (warehouses, production, trade and services) efficiently. As a result, they have a perfect overview of their business and save tens of percent of operating costs.

The main product Abra Gen (all-in-one ERP) designed for larger companies (e.g. Profimed, Lékárna.cz, Fokus Optik, Konsepti or Vasky) is developed in Prague together with the smart software for smaller business Abra Flexi, which has a part of the team also in Pilsen. Both systems run in the cloud and have a sophisticated API, so they can be connected to other applications that communicate with each other without human intervention.

In Brno, the company runs an E-commerce centre where it develops tailor-made e-shops for customers. It has a separate branch in Slovakia – Abra Gen is used by outdoor clothing manufacturer Zajo, among others. In addition to Czech and Slovak customers, Abra Gen and Abra Flexi are also used by business owners in Switzerland. In 2022, the company expanded its portfolio to include the IS Flores process ERP system and the Business Navigation System tool, which strategically directs managers to their chosen goals.

Loadhog

Loadhog is a multi-award winning, employee-owned, UK Manufacturer, dedicated to the design, manufacture, sale, and pooling of returnable packaging solutions across a diverse range of industries. We are committed to introducing new sustainable supply chain solutions that save companies valuable time, money, and labour.

To ensure we are constantly innovating we have a key performance requirement that states, a minimum of 25% of our turnover must come from products less than four years old. This instils a drive within all employees to invent, challenge, and implement the latest innovations within packaging solutions.

We ensure that throughout the business we monitor the impacts our day-to-day operations have on the planet. We have a swap out scheme that promotes a circular economy for plastic material, our products reduce waste to landfill by replacing one trip packaging such as plastic stretch wrap and cardboard, and our more modular packaging systems can also increase vehicle fill which reduces the number of vehicle movements for our customer’s, improving their carbon footprint.

Being employee owned positively influences the way our people act within our business. Our people are our greatest asset, and we take care of them as the future of our business depends on them.

TIMOCOM

IT and FreightTech company TIimocom was founded in 1997. The driving force behind the company’s foundation was the lack of a pan-European procurement platform for freight contracts. TIimocom Marketplace is one of Europe’s largest freight and available vehicle exchanges. The company is headquartered in Erkrath. More than 690 employees work in offices in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.

They are united by a vision of a future logistics industry in which they no longer face logistical challenges. Through the TIimocom Marketplace, they make logistics smarter, safer, and easier for their customers.  

TIimocom is a pioneer in connecting European logistics and up to 1 000 000 international shipping offers and available vehicles appear daily in their Marketplace. More than 55 000 verified customers are connected in their network. Deals are concluded exclusively between trading partners; therefore, their network is completely neutral.

Pure Harmony

In 2019, Kristýna and her husband Michal combined two seemingly distant worlds – social entrepreneurship and love for cosmetics.

So they gave life to their brand Pure Harmony, founded in South Moravia in Miroslav near Znojmo. They set up a sheltered workshop here, which employs people with disabilities, and they produce Czech natural cosmetics with them.

They know all the suppliers of the raw materials used in the production of cosmetics personally. Whether it is the farmers from whom they buy herbs or the manufacturers of packaging materials, they can personally guarantee the quality of the individual raw materials and at the same time support other Czech companies.

Their basic ingredients for production are chamomile, rose of Damascus, and lavender, which they grow in the small village Klentnice near Mikulov.

In their assortment, you will find sparkling bath bombs full of essential oils, mineral-rich Dead Sea bath salts, organic flower waters, handmade soaps, various gift sets, and other complementary products.
