Does your project meet your expectations?
We can find out – confirm or find a new solution.

If you have time on your hands and are determined, you will come to a solution by trial and error. We know that you are the best in what you do and that we are the best in what we do. In short, we have experience and extensive knowledge flowing through our veins and are courageous in our search for innovative solutions. We approach projects from a comprehensive perspective and so are able to meet your criteria, which would be almost impossible without experience and practice.

The road we offer you is tailored and thus more effective, simpler and cheaper in more than one way.

DEVELOPMENT OF IN-HOUSE APPLICATIONS

FOTE s.r.o. deals with the development of its own in-house applications – add-ins for CAD software. An example is our application for automatic generating of DXF files for sheetmetal parts and other solid parts.
