Present

The company Lycos-Trnava Malt House s.r.o. belongs to the most important malt producers in Slovakia. At present we produce the malt of Pilsen type on three production lines (Moving Mass, Lausmann and Saladin boxes) with a total capacity of approximately 66,000 MT annually.
 
Lausmann line and Saladin boxes are production plants of the latest technology, fully computer-controlled and air-conditioned. This allows us to produce the malt of the highest quality under exact specified conditions of germination during the whole year, regardless of external weather conditions.
 
In order to improve the quality of the malt, we implemented the quality management system in the year 2002. Since then we have been audited and currently we hold ISO 9001:2008 by Bureau Veritas Certification, valid until 2017. We have been audited by all the biggest brewing groups, such as SABMiller, Molson Coors, Heineken and Carlsberg.
 
We are able to reach the premium quality of the malt mainly thanks to the investments to the technical equipment of individual parts of malting house, constant improvement of laboratory facilities using the latest analytical equipment, a continuous increase of qualification of our employees and the strict observation of the quality management system. The technology of malt production is constantly consulted with the well-known specialists from the Research Institute of Brewing and Malting (Výzkumný ústav pivovarský a sladařský) in Brno in the Czech Republic.
 
More than 95% of our production is exported to the demanding markets in the whole Europe. Our customers are independent breweries and multinational holding companies as well, mainly from the Central Europe. Our strategy in sales is „around the chimney“, means surrounding countries.
