Company History

More than 100 years of tradition

After the Second World War, the original fabric dyeing plant became a part of the Tepna concern and production of starch book cloth and later collar liners was started here. In 1993, the company was privatized and named Platex, s.r.o. In 1995, Platex has been acquired by the Dutch group BN International, to which it belongs to this day. In 2015, the company name has been changed to BN International, s.r.o.

The last 20 years have seen the intensive development of new products in all product groups, and now our company belongs to the world's leading manufacturers with all of its products.
