Ján Hartl is temporary owner of chemical plant Fortischem
Ján Hartl, who sells food supplements under the Fit4You brand, is the temporary owner of chemical plant Fortischem. He is to own the company until regulators approve the entry of Czech investor Karel Pražák, whose Kaprain group owns Czech chemical plant Spolchemie. If regulators reject Pražák’s bid, Hartl will seek other strategic investor. Fortischem, formerly owned by Mario Hoffmann, is already paying back wages to its 700 workers. Its sales fell from €170m in 2014 to last year’s €70m.
