We were only three when we founded BORCAD as a small design and development studio. I never planned to run a production facility. However, soon it turned out that only designing products makes no big profit and therefore we abandoned the idea of pure design solutions. We started the production for our partners, but we never stopped pursuing our original values. Until today we accent comfort, innovations and design solutions – these is our value added, the core of our business. Even after 25 years we are still remaining owners of the company. I am proud to be managing a company in which we all together create attractive and comfortable products that are making the travelling more pleasant for thousands of passengers.
WELCOME IN BORCAD
We are developing and producing our passenger train seats at the foothills of Beskydy Mountains. Our staff count is 150 and owing to our unique design and original structural solutions we are among the most innovative companies in the industry. We are flexible and we all share a single goal – a satisfied customer.
Together with three other employees, Ivan Boruta founds a small design and development studio named BORCAD. With repeating demand for own production, first products are made and introduced to market – veterinary tables, birthing beds and gynaecological chairs.
With successful production of medicinal equipment, new ideas and projects are sought. Development and production of passenger train seats is launched.
Arrival of first high-speed train on Czech rails – SuperCity Pendolino is acquired by national operator Czech Railways. With our seats inside! This is a historical milestone among company’s projects which still keeps its honourable position in our references. We are really proud of it.
Company expands and turnover is growing. For the second time we are increasing our production capacity – now by 100%.
We are delivering seats to Russian operator Aeroexpress and thus entering the ex-Soviet Union market. All passengers travelling between all Moscow’s airports and the city centre are riding on our new REGIO+ seats.
For ÖBB, and in cooperation with SIEMENS we are developing and producing a seat representing its name with every inch – GENIO.
Building time again. This time we are constructing new assembly halls to fit our increasing production demand. In the new halls we can produce up to 90 000 seats a year.
After 16 years we say goodbye to branch of medicinal equipment acquired by company LINET. We are now focusing only on passenger seats for trains and developing new products.
Two new key products are introduced to market. The VISIO seat for regional transport and the FLEXIO seat for long-distance travelling, especially for high-speed trains.
25 years of evolution. Once in a while – a revolution.
We never produced a seat designed by someone outside the company. At all times we use our own development and know-how and thanks to this we perfectly know our products. We are combining design and functionality. A key element for us is the long-term cooperation of our development team with designer Jiří Španihel. At our development centre IDEA AIR we are together creating attractive products which make the travelling more pleasant to thousands of passenger.
