Management of the Bata Company Visit the CPS

Representatives of the Bata Company paid a visit to the Centre of Polymer Systems on Wednesday, 15 June 2022.

Mr Charles Pignal, great-grandson of Tomáš Baťa was also among the visitors. The delegation, accompanied by Prof. Petr Sáha, toured the building – technology hall and the laboratories of the CPS. The visitors were interested, for example, in shoes made of biodegradable material, on which the CPS scientists are working on, besides other things.

“I’m amazed to see so many state-of-the-art machines and equipment under one roof. I travel a lot around the world, but I haven’t seen anything like this before,” commented Charles Pignal.

The representatives of the Bata Company also received information about novelties from the Footwear Research Centre.
