In 2015, the Minia modular devices manufactured by OEZ are subject to radical changes, which can be understood as a generation or innovative jump in connecting.

In 2016 it will be exactly 75 years since the Olomouc company Wágner a spol. opened its production of fuses, fuse bases and other products in what was then the Kyšperk region. That was the beginning of electro-technical production in the region. Generations of the Letohrad population associated their life with electrical engineering. Thanks to that OEZ became a sort of family for most of its employees. This is positively reflected in their approach to work and the low turnover of employees.
OEZ has always been a progressive firm, which is confirmed by its sixty-year-long tradition of research and development. Dozens of development experts, designers and testing engineers are currently members of international development teams of the Siemens group, in which Letohrad-based OEZ has been active since 2007.
The Arion air circuit breakers have been in the OEZ‘s product portfolio since 2000. They are the successors of the AR and ARV air circuit breakers, which had been produced by our company for more than 30 years. Since 2010 the Arion circuit breakers are manufactured in the plant in Letohrad.
In the previous issues of the OEZ News you may have taken a note that we are optimizing the product portfolio of the Varius fuse systems. Now the changes concern the cylindrical fuse-links as well as their switch-disconnectors and disconnectors.
