At least that's how it works for me," says Adam Janek, director and board member of Eye Centre Prague (OCP). This is proven by the fact that OCP is moving forward in full speed and not giving up on its vision despite the difficult times when some other companies may rather be looking for a lifeline. Next spring OCP is moving to new premises and will thus become one of the biggest eye clinics with purely Czech capital in our country.

The first planet that came to our mind was Saturn, for its exquisite rings and beautiful moons. Enceladus in particular may have more in common with Earth than we can imagine.

Pletiva Dobrý a Urbánek was founded in 2013 based on an equal share of both company co-owners.

Gradually, their original company was joined by other projects, and this year everything culminates in the transformation of their business into a holding company.
