The limited liability company KREINER, spol. s r. o., specialising in the wholesale and retail trade of sanitary and heating products and hardware was founded in Plzeň (Pilsen) on 21 November 1991 as a subsidiary of the well-established Georg Kreiner GmbH&Co.KG company from the border town of Weiden, Germany. Founded in 1892 as a small retail shop in the town square in Weiden, the parent company gradually expanded its activities to wholesale. After buying land in the outskirts of Weiden, an extensive wholesale complex was built in 1959. In the following years, additional wholesale halls were constructed and fitted with ever more state-of-the-art and high-performance service technology and equipment.

Based in Pilsen, KREINER, spol. s r. o., is an independently operated company. It launched its activities by purchasing and completely reconstructing a dilapidated shop in house No. 49 in Tylova Street in Pilsen. In 1992, the company opened for business with approximately 10 employees and started acquiring its first regular customers.

In the successive years, the turnover rose quite progressively and the premises in Tylova Street could no longer keep up with the increasing demands of the constantly growing customer base and the traded goods volume. The company purchased land next to the approach to the Rozvadov motorway in the municipality of Vejprnice near Pilsen where it built a modern wholesale complex on an area of 27,000 square metres, which was completed in mid 1997. With ground coverage of 2,600 square metres, the new building houses a warehouse, a store, and offices. The central warehouse of the company is located here along with the purchasing department, billing and accounting departments, as well as our team of sales representatives who are in daily contact with regular customers.

In 1999, KREINER leased offices in Jaromírova Street in Prague 2 and hired two sales representatives. In 2001, it opened a new branch in Štúrova Street in Prague 4 where currently 10 employees serve customers from Prague and its environs. The store and the warehouse provide enough space for large stocks of plumbing and heating material. Based on business experience and existing customer demand, the company decided to expand its business activities by introducing luxury bathrooms under the KREINER EXKLUSIV brand. In 2000, it leased commercial space with an area of 250 square metres in Klimentská Street in Prague 1 and converted it into a luxury bathroom showroom displaying wall and floor tiles, bathroom accessories, and a fully functional bathroom for a hands-on customer experience. The presented luxury brands include Villeroy & Boch, Dornbracht, JADO, GROHE, SPRINZ, Duravit, Keuco, Hoesch, etc.

Another branch soon followed. It was opened in 2002 in the district of Bohatice in Karlovy Vary where the staff serves customers from the spa town and its surroundings. In the store and the adjoining storeroom, customers may find our basic product assortment. In late 2005, the company opened a similarly conceived store in Sokolov and further branches were opened in 2006, namely in Chomutov on 1st March, in Kladno on 1st April, and in Most on 1st June.

With a view to the growing demand for luxury bathrooms and the positive customer response to the showroom in Prague 1, the company management decided to build another high-class bathroom showroom on the premises of the complex in Vejprnice. The largest luxury bathroom showroom in the Czech Republic was opened here in 2004. It is the only showroom in the country presenting "The House of Villeroy & Boch" style with luxury bathrooms fitted and furnished to the slightest detail. Professional staff and graphic design visualisations are available to customers to ensure their utmost satisfaction. Another store in Kladno has been in operation since 2 April 2007 and it is continuously updating its displayed assortment.

All branches and showrooms of the company are supplied with new goods from the main warehouse in Vejprnice several times a day. The range of provided services includes free deliveries of goods ordered by customers to stores or to other previously agreed locations. To our customers we provide consulting, offer regular training and the possibility of obtaining various certificates, visits to manufacturers, processing of offers, etc. The company is a member of the Association of Professional Wholesalers. As we always put our customers first, our team of employees is ready to satisfy their requirements to their maximum satisfaction. We look forward to your visit and our potential cooperation.
