We appreciate your partnership. Thank you!
On this special occasion, we decided to make a new corporate video as a thank you to you, our business partners, for years of great cooperation and also to all our TSR colleagues for their good work and persistence.
We have also celebrated the 30 years of the company in a special way – with a new sculpture made entirely from scrap metal. At our Ostrava centre, the largest processing plant in Central Europe, we raised the Tower of Babel.
Made by artistic blacksmiths Lukáš Dvorský and Marek Břuska, the 4.5 m high monument with its 30 steps symbolizes the gradual growth of our company and also the necessity of recycling for a sustainable future. Each of the successive, slowly grassing-up steps symbolizes one year of TSR’s presence on the market.
What better way to capture our progress than by time-lapse photography?
Every company has its beginnings
We have mapped our journey to the modern TSR in a photo gallery that goes through the history of our centres, as documented in the surviving chronicles of our establishments, to the present day.

Our soul is our people
We had the chance to find out how the children of our employees see our work in a TSR family competition for the best children’s drawing that was part of the company’s anniversary celebration. We wish to thank all the participants for their beautiful creations and their parents for their years of active work and love for what we do. Without our people there would be no TSR.
