Franz Bibus & Sohn Company
The company was founded by Franz Josef Bibus (1860–?), son of a master baker in Lanškroun (Landskron). There he trained in the gold- and silversmithing craft.
From 1883, he was active in Moravská Třebová, where he married and where his son Carl Alois Franz Bibus was born in 1887. In 1917, Carl became the firm’s co-owner. The commercial name Franz Bibus first appeared in 1896. Initially, the company made gold and silver necklaces, eventually enlarging its assortment to include boxes of various shapes. After moving to the workshop on 16, Olomoucká Street, which facilitated production on a larger scale, the firm’s range of articles expanded to comprise silverware and table utensils. Around 1900, some one-hundred employees worked for the company; in 1914, there were close to two-hundred. At the time, the firm began manufacturing galvanized objects. In 1917, the company changed its name to Franz Bibus & Sohn. The firm
specializing in the production of silver, nickel silver and galvanized items operated into the 1940s, when František Bibus was forced to sell his company. After World War II, the state administration merged all local workshops into a single
state-owned enterprise named Sandrik.
