For almost 30 years, traditional family company Koutný has been making uniforms for armed forces and administrative organisations of European and non-European countries. The company prides itself on the high quality of its products and used materials as well as its flexibility of delivery and personal approach. In order to facilitate collaboration with other entities, they have joined the CLUTEX cluster. As a result, the company becomes one of the most reliable suppliers of formal and field uniforms, special-purpose combat clothing, overalls, waistcoats, suits, jackets, trousers and many other products. All orders are realised with the greatest possible care in batches both large and small. Company Koutný holds the ISO 9001:2009 and AQAP 2110 quality certificates and are currently preparing for certification under ISO 14001:2015. In 2023, company installed photovoltaic panels on all its buildings.

In cooperation with the armies of NATO member countries, company Koutný is involved in the development of new equipment components. In 2023, despite strong international competition, they won the tender for the Dutch customs office, where the focus was on sustainability, recycled materials, organic natural materials and production processes that are as environmentally friendly as possible. Thanks to this tender and the sustainable approach, the company is now much closer to implementing ESG, setting decarbonisation goals and achieving circularity.

In addition to quality of workmanship, company Koutný also cares about constant innovation in materials, production processes, technological procedures and designs.
