Our team consists, at any one time, of approximately 30 highly qualified specialists ready to solve any project problem. Our company has specialists having a wide spectrum of knowledge and experience in all areas associated with, and used on energy and industrial projects. Our specialists have worked on many and varied projects within the Czech Republic and also abroad and where it has been necessary to work in conjunction with a number of major international clients.
Our motto is flexibility. During the process of project solving and which can include site-related problems, AUTCOM is using its own "knowledge-base" tool which is a method of utilising information gathered during the operation of past projects and which is maintained in an internal database. Equally important is the role which communication and cooperation plays within any given project and also between other different projects.
Effective and clear communication is one of the most important factors within the operation of any project. Our specialists are therefore, continuously trained in foreign languages. At present we are able to offer specialists equipped and trained to communicate in the following languages:
