We want to be a strong partner for the rail industry in Europe. We base our mission on innovation, tradition, and family values. That’s the spirit in which we build our portfolio of companies.
The tradition of rail vehicles manufacturing in the Czech Republic goes back to the 19th century, and the Czech engineering is valued both domestically and abroad. We want to carry on with this tradition in the “family office” part of Thein.
Our goal is to keep the Czech companies and their know-how in Czech hands, support family-owned businesses in further development, digitalise and automate their operation processes, and utilise modern technologies to drive the rail industry towards the future. The engineering part of Thein investment group is fully under Tomáš Budnik’s control.
We focus on rail industry and the production of rail vehicles and tram parts.
Our goal is to be able to cover the production of the vast majority of rail vehicle components.
We rent out locomotives to our partners across the whole Europe.
The Ponec company, which specialises in machining and metalworking, is our first investment. The company is the core of our portfolio, and other companies that help expand and complement the products in our portfolio are centred on it. We develop the companies both business- and technology-wise, especially through digitalisation and process automation.
