Czech Republic based trussing and staging manufacturer MILOS Group announces the recent acquisition of two leading trussing and staging brands – LITEC and TOMCAT.
The new deal makes MILOS the largest global aluminium trussing and staging group with the addition of major manufacturing bases in Italy, Slovakia, Mexico and the US to strengthen their 250,000sq’ft of production facilities in the Czech Republic and Asia.
The exciting acquisition will reinforce the MILOS operation on a worldwide scale, strengthening international sales, manufacturing and engineering infrastructure, as well as bringing additional dynamics to the group.
Increasing the manufacturing capacity will also make MILOS even more competitive with the impressive portfolio of standard products and special projects.
MILOS’s CEO Frantisek Zykan states, "We are very excited with this announcement. Our strategy has always been to deliver the best products made to the highest standards of excellence with a quick, efficient turnaround. Having LITEC and TOMCAT on-board expands the ideas pool and product range to meet all staging needs …. with a truly international reach."
The skills and experience of all three companies make a perfect combination with many natural synergies, a vast collective experience, an awesome knowledge base and extensive contacts. "All those working for LITEC and TOMCAT are driven, focussed and share our collective visions for the future," concludes Zykan.
TOMCAT is based in Midland, Texas and has enormous kudos in the concert touring, live music and large scale musical theatre sectors. Its products have always been innovative and progressive with "Strength Under Pressure" an enduring company mantra.
Mike Garl, President & General Manager of TOMCAT says, "We are delighted to become part of the MILOS group, which will open up a huge range of creative possibilities with like-minded individuals. TOMCAT has always been ‘customer driven’, and we strive every time to provide service beyond expectations to our clients".

Our staffs are all motivated by passion, enthusiasm and initiative, which is very much the MILOS ethos".
