The beginning of car rear-view mirror production

We are proud that our products are used by companies such as:
Our cooperation with IVECO historically dates back to when Karosa was the manufacturer of buses in Vysoké Mýto. It was subsequently incorporated into IVECO and renamed IVECO Czech Republic in 2007.
We currently not only supply rear-view mirrors to the Vysoké Mýto production plant, but also to Annonay in France and Antalya in Turkey.
Our mirrors can be found on Crossway, Urbanway and Evadys models
Our mirrors are widely used on Škoda vehicles. Whether it's trams, metro or trains.
Kovoplast mirrors were and are still used on Tatra T3 cars, which can still be seen in Prague, as well as their modern successors, the Škoda 15T trams, which also have mirrors made by Kovoplast.
We continue to successfully meet increasingly demanding customer requirements, which is why our products are also available on the brand new 40T for Plzeň and the 45T for Brno. Together with Škoda Transportation, we have developed a completely new electric folding mirror mechanism specifically for these trams.
In addition to trams, we are also a supplier of mirrors for the Prague Metro, as well as for the St. Petersburg Metro.
A completely new segment for which we have developed a special mirror with a folding mechanism is the single-decker suburban train project.
