In 1847, the Emperor Ferdinade’s northern railway line established repair work for railway wagons in Ostrava.
The factories carried out not only repairs of trucks and cars, but also repairs of locomotives and production of spare parts.
From 1939 to 1945 the workshops were under military administration and even aircraft were repaired.
In the years after World War II, the factories focused mainly on the construction and repair of trucks.
