In 2016 the company celebrated its 25th anniversary since being founded, and together with a new visual identity changed its name to Samohýl group. Why Samohýl group? Apart from the veterinary wholesaling, which used to be the initial activity, the company has been conducting various other business activities (it is also a pet food and pet accessories wholesaler, owns a retail pet shop chain called Zvěrokruh with e-shop and more than 50 shops around the Czech Republic and has its own brand of sewn Czech made products for pets called Samohýl Exclusive). We believe that the new title better expresses the scope of services that the company provides.
From it´s foundation in 1991, by leaps and bounds, the company has made it to where it is today – customer service is available 15 hours a day, a three shift operation runs warehouses, the commodities are distributed through more than 25 delivery lines, and the company has over 13,000 items from 250 suppliers in store. Last year Samohýl group had a turnover of €36,630,000 and it currently employs almost 500 people, yet it has retained a 100% Czech ownership.
