K&K TECHNOLOGY a.s. General Meeting
The management and the employees of joint-stock company K&K TECHNOLOGY met on Friday 30 March 2012 for their regular General Meeting. As the tradition goes, guests from the partner organizations, former/retired company employees and deputies from the sister companies - K&K TECHNOLOGY in Slovakia, Šumavské vodovody a kanalizace and Vodohospodářský podnik (Water-Management Enterprise) Plzeň were invited to attend the meeting.
The company management familiarized the General Meeting with the economic results for the last year 2011, which were clearly the best ones in the more than twenty-year history of the K&K Group. The turnover of the joint-stock company exceeded CZK 500 million and also the profit before tax, with the exception of 2008, was best in the whole history. The last-year’s results were naturally influenced favourably by the large projects implemented successfully, in particular the waste water treatment plants in Plzeň, Česká Lípa and Rajec (Slovak Republic).
The year 2012 will be as challenging as the previous one. The waste water treatment plants in Žilina, Cheb, Domažlice and Chotusice, the water treatment plants in Choceň and Přeštice, as well as many other projects will require the complete engagement of all the company employees. In 2012, the company has been strengthened by a newly established building division. After moving into new rooms in the Koldinka premises, company’s own production will be developed further and preconditions made for further development of our activities abroad, especially in the Russian Federation.
After the General Meeting, the company employees met for an evening party together with their colleagues from Šumavské vodovody a kanalizace. First tournament in bowling between both companies was organized within the party. The first year challenge cup was won by the K&K TECHNOLOGY team.

Česká Lípa WWTP
The finishing of the realization of the last construction of the “Clean Ploučnice” project lasting 18 months was celebrated in Česká Lípa on 9 January 2012. This last part concerned an overall reconstruction of the waste water treatment plant in Česká Lípa with investment costs reaching almost CZK 225 million.
The SYNER – SYNER VHS Vysočina – K&H KINETIC Consortium was the project contractor. The construction was started on 3 May 2010, with the implementation complicated by the flood in 2010. In spite of this, the construction was taken over by the investor as scheduled on 31 October 2011 and the trial operation was started on 8 December 2011. At present, the waste water treatment plant meets the limits set for its operation after reconstruction.
K&H KINETIC, operating under the business name of K&K TECHNOLOGY since the beginning of 2012, delivered the technological part of the project within the Consortium. The waste water treatment plant in Česká Lípa has thus ranked among the relevant references from the twenty years of K&K Group operation in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Russian Federation and the CIS countries.
