Discover the history of Walcownia Metali DZIEDZICE S.A.
sheet rolling mill hall – the first hall as well the oldest one of the company
Expansion and development of the zinc industry associated with Giesche’s group situated at the Prussian sector caused crash of zinc processing factories situated at the Austrian sector, among other things “Zinkwalzwerke Dziedzice”. Therefore in 1906 a thorough rebuilding of the factory was started and production was switched over to aluminium products and planned manufacturing of copper and copper alloy products at further stages, whereas manufacturing of the main product i.e. zinc semi-finished products was still carrying on.
After 1918 the factory’s owners were changed many times. In 1921 the factory became a property of the joint-stock company with the central office in Morawska Ostrawa that associated zinc rolling mills situated in Provoz, Dziedzice, Oświęcim and Vacz in Hungary.
formerly – briquette plant, today – rolling mill division
As a result the Polish company named Walcownia Metali S.A. with the central office in Dziedzice was established.
Stabilization of the Polish market after the economic crisis influenced significantly on further development of the company. The number of employees still and considerably was growing thus: June 1932 – 236 employees, December 1934 – 524 employees, June 1939 – 909 employees. Every year the stock of orders was full and from year to year swelled including military orders as well as private market orders. During the period the investment activities were speed up. New divisions and departments were commenced. The structure of buildings became dense and the area occupied was too small for further development.
In the first half-year of 1939 the highest production of aluminium alloys, copper, brasses, new silver and zinc products was reached i.e. 458 tonne per month.
After the Second World War Walcownia Metali “Dziedzice” started producing on June 16, 1945 year as the state-owned enterprise. The machines sold or given to Morawska Ostrawa and Laski were returned to the enterprise in 1947 year.
According to a decision dated 1 January, 1959 of the Mining and Metallurgy of Non-Ferrous Metals Association seated in Katowice two plants were took over by Walcownia Metali “Dziedzice” ‘s management i.e.
copper processing division – hall being constructed
Zakład Metali Lekkich “Kęty” and Zakład Pieców Elektrycznych “Piel”. Therefore as a result Walcownia Metali “Dziedzice” became a multi-plant enterprise and consisted of:

|•||Zakład “Oświęcim” in Oświęcim,|
|•||Zakład Metali Lekkich “Kęty” in Kęty,|
