SKB-GROUP is an operatively-lead family business. The foundation-stone was laid in 1891 by our great-grandfather. Even today, after more than 100 years, we still put emphasis on the basic values of a family business: reliability and responsibility.

We at the SKB-GROUP have been operating as an owner-managed family business for over 125 years. This long-standing and successful tradition would undoubtedly not have been possible without a strong grounding in clear ethical and moral principles. We aim to continue to implement this integrity in our everyday business and consider the personal responsibility of every single employee to form an essential part of this commitment.

This Code of Conduct and its associated regulations are not seeking to „invent“ new approaches. Instead they aim to clearly demonstrate the obligations we must fulfil nowadays.

Quality & Environment System

The company PRAKAB produces and tests its products according to these standards and specifications:

  • the national and international standards of the series CSN, DIN VDE, ÖVE, IEC, BS, STN
  • the customers´ specifications
  • instructions of the energy suppliers
  • own technical specifications
  • standards for electrical engineering
  • product standards
  • test standards

The original quality management system of the company PRAKAB was certified in the end of the year 1995 according to the standard norm EN ISO 9001, the functionality of the system was checked by employees of the certification society TÜV NORD CERT. In the next years the quality management system was gradually amended in terms of normative requirements and needs of the company. A big impact on the quality management system had the implementation of the requirements of the environment protection management system according to the standard norm EN ISO 14001. Based on the combination of both norms the integrated management system was built.

Since the first certification of the quality management system, both the quality management system and the environment protection management system have been regularly audited by the certification society and the validity of the certificates has not been interrupted since 1995. Also the safety and environment protection management system according to the Czech standard norm CSN ISO 45001 has been implemented into the integrated management system, however it has never been certified and is only used to improve the safety and health protection of the employees.
Intentions of the PRAKAB workers towards the quality, environment, safety and health protection at work documents the policy.
