History of our company Korek Jelínek

Jindřich Jelínek began, as the first person to do so, supplying Bohemia with cork as early as in the year 1855. For the following 100 years (almost), the company Korek Jelínek was providing the entire Central and Eastern Europe with this natural product. After being nationalized in 1948, the Jelínek family fled to Canada where Jindřich Jelínek senior established his enterprise once again. The international market had shown appreciation for the Czech know-how, and soon after that, the company Korek Jelínek got back on the successful track, this time in Canada and in the USA.

Jelinek Cork Group = Korek Jelínek

The incumbent president of the family firm Jelinek Cork Group, residing in the Canadian town of Oakville (Ontario), is Ing. Henry Jelinek junior, who was delighted with the comeback of the company Korek Jelínek to the Czech Republic in 1997.

Over the last 10 years in our market, Korek Jelínek spol. s r.o. has established itself as the only company which specializes entirely in cork and offers a complex range of cork products. Its significant market shares in both the Czech Republic and other European countries bear evidence to this assertion. Korek Jelínek is once again considered to be one of the main suppliers in this field, and, together with its Spanish and Portuguese partners, it will expand in the future as well.


The Jelinek Cork Group is aware of the uniqueness and the limited availability of cork. If the cork-tree is treated with proper care, respect and understanding, it will become a renewable resource for ever. Although Korek Jelínek reacts to the increasing needs of the modern cork market, it also commits itself actively in protection and renewal of cork plantations.
