I'd imagine this is because of Slovakia's history as a hockey country and the fact that they're a big contender in the international realm. Think about it. Czechia, Slovakia and Russia are all serious hockey countries and pucks are produced heavily in these countries; but Hungary, Poland (and the like) are not hockey powerhouses, hence pucks aren't necessarily produced here on a mass-scale.

Strange how more aren't made in Switzerland, Sweden or Finland, but I guess it's the pattern of where hockey is played most, given that the UK (despite not being a hockey country) would clearly have the capacity to produce pucks (albeit not really selling them domestically).

It could also have to do with existing factories and companies from the Czechoslovak era.
