We can lead you through the world made of microscopic details of printed circuit boards. More than twenty five years of experience gives you proof of our quality and skills. Our strength is precision and fast delivery. Standardly we manage top urgent deadlines in perfect quality.
Gatema was established as C.E.A., s.r.o. a limited liability company with foreign capital participation - in 1992. As from the beginning of its existence, the company co-operated with LCS International (now Asseco solutions a.s.) and operated in the field of sales and later also development of high-quality ERP systems. In May 1994, the company bought a technology for manufacture of single- and double-sided printed circuit boards and one year thereafter the company became 100% Czech company operating in the international field of information technologies and printed circuit boards manufacturing. In the last 25 years our company grew from 2 employees start up to company with 180 employees divided in four divisions at the present time, and generating annual turnover almost 7 million EUR our new plant and our branch offices.
Gatema PCB a.s. - base stone of the brand
Nowadays, the Gatema PCB is the key division of the company, producing prototype printed circuit boards (PCB) to 800 companies in fifteen European countries, including the leading distributors in our industry.
Thanks to permanent investments into development and technological improvements we do believe that our aim of becoming one of the leading European suppliers of PCB prototypes is not an unreal ambition. Have a look at our PCB production hall here.
Naturally, we do our best to minimize the environmental tracks of the company and we also invest into personal development of our employees in such way so were main as innovative and inspiring company not just for now, but even for the future. We want and we also participate in many charity projects in our surroundings.
