The author of the company mascot is Mr. Josef Bachmann who worked in CHODOS CHODOV s.r.o. in promotion department and was very progressive in his ideas, besides other things, he designed the company mascot that was named CHODOSÁK.
This 23-cm tall figure with a smiling face was created in 1974. The new blow-moulding machines were tested just by blow-moulding the figure Chodosák. For the first time, Chodosák was introduced and produced at the machinery fair in Brno in 1975. Shortly, it became a subject of collectors´ interest. It was always produced in spectrum of tens of colors. The biggest interest excited the most valuable figures in metallic shades. Chodosák was used as a toy for children but also as a coin bank and helped the parents when bringing up their children to saving behavior.
Chodosák consists of parts representing products on machines produced by us – blow-moulding machines, curing presses and extruders. The shoes in shape of canisters and the body as a barrel represent products manufactured on blow-moulding machines. The feet and arms represent hoses produced on extruders. The collar on the neck in shape of a tire represents a product produced on curing presses.
The figure in a hat with company logo holding the mark of CHODOS became a non-official symbol of the company CHODOS CHODOV s.r.o.
In 2016, we managed to purchase a traditional blow-moulding machine with volume of 6 liters, type 004141. We would like to come back to the history and tradition, completely rebuild the machine and produce the favorite mascot of CHODOS again.
