About DAKO CZ
DAKO CZ supplies brake systems and components for freight and passenger cars, suburban units, locomotives, metro vehicles and trams.
Rail vehicles equipped with DAKO brakes can be seen not only in Europe but also in China, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Algeria, where the company cooperates with leading rolling stock manufacturers and operators of mass rail transport. The company has its own research and development centre, a proprietary testing laboratory and a design centre.
DAKO’s unique know-how is based on a strong tradition – its history goes back to 1816, when a casting and mechanical engineering factory was founded in Třemošnice. After 1920, the company’s core business was expanded to include products for the railway industry. In the 1950s DAKO started to manufacture and assemble brake systems of its own design. But progress did not stop there. International success was achieved with CV1 and CV2 distributors for international railway and in 1995 the first brake systems for trams were designed and made.
