Market Leader in Czech Republic
Father and son – Luděk and Dalimil Petrilak establish the Alkion service s.r.o. with the aim to specialize in the cleaning of ventilation systems using dry ice blasting.
Dalimil Petrilák becomes the first holder in middle Europe of the ASCS certificate within the NADCA organization.
Alkion successfully finishes a huge cleaning project on the USS Mount Whitney, the flagship of the 6th fleet of the US Navy. Being granted this new business segment was only possible by holding the ASCS certificate and through our internationl network.
To secure independence and quick response time, Alkion buys its first pelletizer. This also ensures lower prices for our customers.
Due to the establishment of a relationship and trust between the US Navy and Alkion we are being awarded several projects per year.
Ludek Petrilak jr. becomes the third partner in the company.
The success of the Czech Alkion encourages the shareholders to establish a company in Germany, serving the German and Austrian markets.
