ZDAS and region
The factory halls and stacks of ZDAS Company cannot be overlooked on the horizon of the town of Zdar nad Sazavou. On the opposite side, historically much older premises of the former Cistercian monastery compete with them. It is dominated by the pilgrimage church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelena hora, which was built by the excellent architect, Jan Blazej Santini Aichl. This monument was registered in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.
In addition to a number of cultural activities supported by ZDAS joint-stock company, also the direct and long-term co-operation with the representatives of the town self-government is important. They understand very well the importance of the Company, which thanks to its turnover is the largest contributor to the municipal budget. ZDAS Company not only pays the mandatory contributions but also takes part in and sponsors concrete municipal activities.
The ZDAS trademark has appeared on the highest tops of the Himalayas, sailed round the world on a sailing boat, and appears regularly at various cultural and sports events. Chamber music and choral societies as well as sports clubs supported by ZDAS usually occupy first places in various competitions and shows.
As regards the social sphere, the contribution to health service designed especially for the modernization of the District Hospital in the nearby town of Nove Mesto na Morave is not insignificant.
