THE SLOVAK Gold Foundation awarded thirteen products of Slovak producers with a protective label and quality certificate, and the Slovak Gold medal. The number of certificates awarded has thus increased to 400, news wire SITA reported.
The Krupina-based engineering company Way Industry gained the 400th Slovak Gold certificate for the Bozena 4 mine-clearing system.
This automatically controlled mechanical device has been successfully used to clear mines in conflict areas in Iraq, in the former Yugoslavia, and Sri Lanka.
Further shipments of this mine-clearing device will be sent to Afghanistan and Angola at the end of the year.
The Slovak Gold Foundation was set up in 1994. Its aim is to support the production and distribution of high standard goods and services in Slovakia. Each awarded product can be labelled with the Slovak Gold insignia on the condition that it maintains its level of quality.
