The sales office on the Moldau
For more than 20 years, the K+S Group has maintained a sales office in Prague, K+S Czech Republic a.s. The company trades in salt, potash and magnesium products and offers waste management and recycling services.
In 1991, Mitteldeutsche Kali AG founded Salz & Kali Handel spol s.r.o in Prague, Czech Republic, to market potash and salt production products from eastern Germany in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Since the potash merger in 1993, when the East and West German potash mines were merged after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, the Prague office has belonged to the K+S Group.
In 2012, the K+S Group and its subsidiary esco - european salt company GmbH & Co. KG acquired the salt mill Olmütz - Solné Mlýny a.s. - a salt processing plant in Moravia. In November 2013, the two companies in Prague and Olomouc were merged under the new name K+S Czech Republic a.s. and were given joint management.
