Our history

The history of our engineering plant in Slany dates back to 1872 when construction started on a factory for Bolzano, Tedeso and Company. Right from the start, our plant has been the source of significant engineering achievements - as evidenced by the award of a gold medal at the Vienna Engineering Fair in 1873. In the early 20th century the plant expanded its area very significantly.  It also delivered on State contracts for the Navy and produced the first type 524 steam locomotive. In 1927 the plant became part of the Českomoravská-Kolben-Danek joint stock company. This became one of the largest engineering and machinery manufacturing enterprises in Europe (with 10,000 blue collar and 1,600 white-collar employees). This period also led to the revival of the company's export programme to India and Persia. The fact that during WW2, a company operating under the name Českomoravské strojírny (Bohemian-Moravian Machine Works) was a part of the production program for the German army. In 2015, the company was taken over of Norwegian ownership by a group of Czech investors and now continues the history of Czech engineering in the hands of Czech owners.
