ATREA s.r.o. was established in 1990 by Ing. Petr Morávek, CSc., and his son Daniel in the laundry room of their family home. Thanks to the technical erudition of our founder, the flexibility of a private family-owned company and an active business policy, ATREA has become one of the largest manufacturers of ventilation equipment in the European market with over thirty years of experience.
ATREA currently employs around 400 employees in nine countries. The manufacturing premises of the company are situated in the Czech Republic – Jablonec nad Nisou, about 20 km from the border with Germany. The area of the manufacturing plant is about 16,000 m² with further planned expansion in the next few years. The manufacturing plant includes state-of-the-art robotic machinery and advanced automation 4.0., which results in the production of top products.
ATREA is one of the leading European producers of ventilation units with heat recovery. The production programme of the company focuses mainly on ventilation units, but they also produce innovative and exceptional products for ventilation of industrial kitchens and the company is further active in passive houses and energy-saving solutions. Unlike most competing companies, an important part of the company’s success is the maximum control of strategic components of its own production programme. The company thus develops and manufactures its own heat recovery exchangers, as well as its own top control system, which is directly tailored to ATREA ventilation units.
The success of ATREA therefore lies mainly in the constant technological innovation and deep technical erudition of its founders and the entire development team. The development of strategic components and the pressure on constant innovation thus allow the maximum possible leadership over competition through innovative and unique products of top quality and penetration to the demanding Western markets where less-quality manufacturers are hard to enforce.
ATREA is a multinational company building a holding of European subsidiaries. Since it is a family-owned company, its business policy is guided by an effort to achieve the most slender and effective structure.
This makes the company very active and flexible in its business strategies, which allows to reactreacting flexibly to local and international movements on the HVAC market compared to corporate structures.
This makes ATREA the leader in the Czech, Slovak and Romanian markets and one of the leading players in the market in Germany, where the company has built strong representation through a top partnership lasting more than 20 years. Overall, ATREA is present on more than 30 foreign markets, including Germany, but also, for example, in the UK, Switzerland, Denmark or Australia and New Zealand, building a holding company of its own subsidiaries. It currently brings together subsidiaries in Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Croatia, Austria and Denmark.
Own accredited laboratory
ATREA also has its own testing laboratory Airlab, which is an internationally recognised, certified and accredited laboratory for measuring not only HVAC units with heat recovery. This allows the company to respond flexibly to its own development trends and cooperate with international players such as the PHI Institute or Eurovent.
ATREA is also a member of the prominent Evia Group, which brings together the most important and largest European producers. The European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) was established in Brussels in July 2010. EVIA’s mission is to represent the views and interests of the ventilation industry and serve as a platform between all the relevant European stakeholders involved in the ventilation sector, such as decision-makers at the EU level as well as our partners in EU member states.
Evidence of the top quality of the company’s products is evidenced by the possession of the most challenging international certifications:
In 2020, in a deep crisis caused by the coronavirus, ATREA decided to devote its efforts more to supporting programmes so that the success of an internationally active company helps to support local health, social and educational projects and also our own employees in the event of difficult life situations.
