HANÁK history


Josef Hanák

Josef Hanák begins manufacturing custom furniture. From the beginning, he does not back away from the quality of workmanship and thus becomes known to the great personalities of his time. He produces furniture, for example, for Tomas Bata's villa in Zlín, thus creating the foundations for the future tradition of the family business.


Renewal of the HANÁK tradition – foundation of the SH Kroměříž company

The son of Josef Hanák, Ing. Stanislav Hanák, his wife Maria and their children launched the company SH Kroměříž. In the beginning, their 500 m2 workshop was primarily used for the production of hall stands, tables and chests of drawers made of solid pine.


We purchase our first CNC machine and increase production by 100%

This year saw the construction of a new facility to house our newly purchased high-gloss varnishing technology, our first CNC milling and drilling machine, and our first large-capacity CNC beam saw. We developed and manufactured our first kitchen model, FLORIDA, and bathroom collection, LUNA, with high-gloss varnish surface finishes.


SH Kroměříž moves to Popůvky

One of the greatest milestones in the history of our company is its relocation to the village of Popůvky near Kojetín, occupying premises with an area of 10,000 m2, with the possibility of continuing to expand production thanks to the excellent location. We introduce soft-forming technology and launch the MELODIE and REMO models on the market. We present new varnished kitchen models such as FONTÁNA, as well as the bathroom models MARIETA and HENRIETA.


We launch the demanding PUR coating process with direct-spraying high gloss in a greater scope

At the MOBITEX trade fair in Brno, we become the first company in the Czech Republic to present high‑gloss varnishing technology, and we launch an iconic kitchen model with fully rounded doors and manually inlaid stained glass: the VERONA kitchen. Other popular models, VIENA and MODENA, are also launched.


Further success at the MOBIS TRADE FAIR

The MOBIS trade fair sets the stage for the presentation of an entire range of new kitchen models, such as PALOMA (pictured) SIMONA, LAGUNA, LAURA, and LINDA; they earn great success and enthusiastic responses from customers and professionals alike.


Rounded profile casing

We become the first in the country to introduce rounded profile casing. Among other things, we expand our selection with the new models BAVORIA (pictured), KLASIC, COMFORT, SONÁTA, SILVIA, and CAPRI.


A new generation of kitchens

We present models with unique new structures and improved kitchen and living room designs, such as the successful DYNAMIC range (pictured), and the kitchen models PATRICIE, AFRODITA, and the ever‑popular PROGRES model.


Construction of new production facilities

We increase our production space by an additional 8,000 m2. At the same time, we expand our kitchen range with the models KLÁRA, MARINA, SONIA, SANDRA, and the iconic and ornate STELA.



An important milestone for the family is the year 2000, when the company became a joint-stock company, expanded its sales network in the Czech Republic and gradually expanded to other foreign markets.


The iconic GALAXIE kitchen

At the turn of the new millennium, we also introduce our iconic GALAXIE kitchen (pictured). The unprecedented shape of this modern varnished kitchen quite astounds both professionals and, above all, the customers in attendance at the MOBITEX trade fair. Also of note are the bathroom furniture ranges CARMEN, NOBLESE, and FANTAZIE. Other kitchen ranges include HARMONIE, ROMANCE, ADRIA, and SABINA.


We introduce a continuous varnishing machine with a large-capacity dryer

Our production halls are expanded by a further 6,000 m2. We improve our varnishing technology and acquire a continuous varnishing machine in order to achieve perfect surfaces for veneered and solid wood furniture.


Further expansion of the production plant

Our production plant grows with the addition of still another hall, which houses a fully automated robotic assembly line. We had already become a leading European manufacturer with state-of-the-art parametrically controlled furniture production, but this cements it.


We open our own Design Centre

Our Design Centre is ceremonially opened in Popůvky, at the time our largest exhibition space and professional training facility, with an area of 2,000 m². We begin manufacturing more furniture for living rooms, bedrooms, closets, and wardrobes. The models ELEGANT, COMPACT, and GALIA are introduced.

2005 - 2006

We increase our production space to 35,000 m2

We become the largest and most modern furniture-producing factory of the time in the Czech Republic, and continue to expand abroad. The PREMIUM model series is introduced.


A modern dual-head robotic varnishing line

We make a major investment and purchase an automated dual head varnishing machine (the first in the Czech Republic) with a fully automated large-capacity drier. Since we care about the environment, we also acquire a high-capacity VOC incinerator. We present the IMPERIAL and OMEGA models.


A fully automated BÜRKLE spray-coating line with UV varnish curing

In order to increase the quality of our varnish, we invest in the purpose of two new spraying lines: one for varnishing surfaces and the other for varnishing edges. This allows us to improve our superior five-layer primer to an even higher quality. We present the PREMIUM model series MONA, LORETA, MILÁNO, ORNELA, NELA, VEGA, and the ever-popular HALINA.



We launch serial production of furniture with heights and widths of 150 mm, which offers infinite variability for interior furnishing and brings maximum comfort to users. The COMFORT model series takes its place among our iconic products.

Revolutionary banding technology – SLIM-LINE

We are the first company in the country to acquire revolutionary SLIM-LINE technology. Using PUR‑TERMOSET edge-banding adhesive, this technology is superior to both the previously used PUR‑TERMOSET edge-banding and the most commonly used EVA adhesive technology in every respect.


New technology – nanovarnishes

We are the first in the country to introduce mass production of veneered and solid wood furniture, including interior doors, finished in a 5% deep matt gloss with acrylic-polyurethane nanovarnish technology.


Further expansion of our product range

We are good at what we do. However, we always want to be one step ahead, which is why we presented a new collection of bathrooms, bedrooms, tables, and all-new and exclusive collection of HANÁK sofas and chairs.
