Körös Pipes

The brand origins from the central Hungarian city of Nagykörös, where the Nagykörösi Pipe Factory was founded in 1930. Balázs Szabó Jr., a grandson of one of the founders, was able to buy back the company in 1989 after the politcal changes in the former Warsaw Pact territory. Now named Szabó Körös Pipe Factory.
