About the HELUZ company
We are a family
We are not any common company, we are much more, we are a family. We are engaged in production of bricks since 1876. In that year, Jan Řehoř built the first furnace in Dolní Bukovsko and fired first bricks from the mined clay. This was the beginning of a long story at which we can look back with pride.
Thanks to our products, thousands of people got new homes that could be utilised by other generations thanks to their durability and congenial environment. Carefully processed bricks are so resistant that despite their age of many dozens of years they can still be used for reconstruction of rural farmsteads up to the present time.
The family tradition was interrupted by coming of communists that nationalised the brickworks in 1950. More than forty years later, the descendants of the founders acquired the brickworks back and consigned their management to their son-in-law Vladimír Heluz. In the period after the Velvet Revolution the company experienced rapid development and factories in Hevlín and Libochovice were added up.
Leadership among the supranational companies needs more than only purchase modern equipment and extend production. It is necessary to dispose of an excellent team loving its work. Simply a family.
We live for bricks
Brick clay is a perfect natural material with unique properties. When fired properly, it is hard like a stone, at the same time it is permeable, with precise details. It cools in summer and warms in winter, offers congenial and healthy home. No wonder that on the market of real estates people are willing to spend more for living in a brick house. Final price of constructions made of HELUZ products is nowise different from constructions of other materials and the work proceeds quite quickly.
Now we are among the three biggest producers of walling systems on our market. This confirm that our betting on quality and innovations paid off. We are the only pure Czech company of that three and proud of skill of our people. Due to these reasons we support Czech top level sport. The javelin thrower Barbora Špotáková has been among those we support for a long time. We have something in common: Working thoughtfully and diligently to be the best. We wish to be the top in all disciplines.
HELUZ is the leader!
We built a sample passive house using single-row brickwork in the Czech Republic. No additional insulation, bricks only.
As the first producer of fired walling units in the CR we got an environmental declaration of the product (EPD) based on verification of bricks production in view of impacts on the environment. There are still not many products with this declaration that is necessary for environmental certification of buildings.
In September 2015 the company obtained an EPD certification for all brick products in all its production plants.
It is launches the first compact polished AKU brick with an airborne sound insulation of Rw = 57 dB under the name HELUZ AKU COMPACT 21 polished. This innovation in the form of a sandwich structure brick-mineral wave-brick significantly increases the acoustic damping values and, at the same time, its lower width allows the living space at the same building space to be increased.
