19.11.2015

This year is for our company and all of its customers and friends really very special. It has been exactly 80 years since František Michera built in Stara Tura small factory for the production of water meters and gas meters. In 1935, as in Stara Tura began to build a tradition of mechanical engineering, precision mechanics and fine-mechanics, but also indirectly to write the story of our company. We think that this anniversary is worth of reflection and reminder even in today´s turbulent and hectic times when we sometimes forget to look back into the past and think about the values from which we come and to which we have a right to be proud of.

The production program was very quickly complemented and expanded by new products, and to the measurement products has been since 1947 complemented also the manufacture of injection technique and gradually in fifties and sixties of the last century also a range of medical & dental products.  It is a rarity that even after eighty years to preserve and continue to develop in Stara Tura manufacture the full range of former products, which gradually over decades successfully covered and marketed under brand Chirana Stara Tura worldwide, even though individual production commodity now carry out independent businesses and also under other brands.

Our company as the owner of the "family" of national and international trademarks „CHIRANA“ with their quality products and services provided, trying to continue in the further development and protection of the reputation of its traditional brand CHIRANA.
