New production hall
In July, 1999, GIGA began operation in a new production hall with an administrative building in Příšovice, where they were built on greenfield. Because interest to GIGA’s products was so enormous, the production capacity of the new manufacturing premises after two years of running were not enough; so in 2002 a new production hall had to be additionally bulit, including inbuilt administrative premises.
