Welcome to BORCAD

BORCAD was founded in 1990 by Ivan Boruta as a small design and development studio. Today we are a company with our own development team and a strong production background. We manufacture seats for trains and emphasize travel comfort, innovative design solutions and open communication with our business partners. This is our added value and DNA given by our founder and long-time owner. In 2022, the company was acquired by new owners, which are the private equity funds Genesis Capital (Czech Republic) and Integral Venture Partners (Hungary). However, our goal remains the same – to produce quality products that are liked and that make the journey of thousands of railway passengers more pleasant!

In November, the new Bond film Casino Royale premieres in Czech cinemas. Our Comfort seats, on which James Bond sits in the scene when he takes the train to Black Mountain, also shone on the silver screen. We recommend enjoying the star-studded film with a good drink and please shake it, do not stir it. 🙂
