Not to be outdone by the universally popular “euro” prefix (euro-trip, euro-style, euro-chic etc.) or the rapidly innovating “i” prefix (iPhone, iPod, iLife etc.), we would like to draw some attention to the nationally popular “slov” prefix.
- Slov-air: was a national airline for Czechoslovakia but dissolved in 1990
- Slov-matic: a soccer club in Bratislava
- Slovakryl: a company that manufactures acrylic paint
- Slovnaft: a chain of gas stations
- Slov-Alex: a company that produces custom rubber stamps
- SLOV-CHLAD: a refrigeration company (everything from freezers to ice rinks – it should be noted that “chlad” means “cold”)
- Slov-Energia: is an energy and natural gas consulting firm
- SLOVinteriér: builds custom made wooden doors and window treatments
- slovLED: specializes in L.E.D. technogies
- Slov-forest: we looked at their website, but we sill aren’t sure what this group does….we think they are Slov-enviromentalists
- SlovMAD: a freight business specializing in shipments between Slovakia and Hungary (the Slovak word for Hungary is “Maďarsko”)
- Slov-TAT: custom car painting company

OK … This is too funny! Good for the Slovaks for putting their STAMP on things!
Not to talk about remarks for Slovak-made goods ;)Like the payoff "Made in SlovaKIA" for the KIA Ceed advertising…:P
A friend of ours just helped us out – apparently Slov-forest is nothing like an environmental group. They sell gardening and forestry technology (like chainsaws), horse riding gear and handle custom orders for guns and ammunition. OH – they also sell, move or remove trees and timber. Clearly, not environmentalists.
