On September 27, 1968, the trade enterprise Chepos Brno was shut down and an enterprise trust Chepos Brno established. Based on decision of the Minister of Heavy Industry, the plant in Chodov was transformed into national enterprise Chodos Chodov.
The name of Chodos originated based on a competition of connecting words Chodovské strojírny. At the same time, a trademark for Chodos product was approved in the image you can see now. According to the original base documents, the goal and graphic interpretation of the trademark presented openness to all the world.
