  • The documented seam airbag technology was first introduceded in 2000 and the sewing division was moved to a new location of a formal agricultural area. The first cutting machine was acquired. The headrests production was relocated to a nearby town of Kaplice, the fabric-cutting division and the seat cover section moved to the town of Benešov nad Černou.
