Read about our history

  • 1989 Setting up the company

    Stanisław Kucharewicz is the founder of the company. He is the father of the current President and owner of the company Jacek Kucharewicz, who together with his wife Katarzyna have run the company from its beginnings.

  • 1989-1990 The beginnings of the business

    Starting and running a business at that time was a very big challenge. Jacek Kucharewicz bought the first “BESTER” welding machine, which was professional at that time, with the money from the sale of an MZ 250 motorcycle. The first product manufactured in the plant was a central heating boiler. The oldest boiler from that period has been in operation to this day.


  • 1991-1993 Development and buying machinery

    The money donated as a gift at the wedding of Jacek Kucharewicz and Katarzyna Szymczuk was used to buy a guillotine for cutting metal sheets. Since then, the components needed for the production of central heating boilers have been manufactured in-house. This allowed for acceleration of production and the starting of the construction of a new plant.

    A building bought from a neighbour was converted into a paint shop.
