Transsystem Turns 20

Transsystem SA, the largest Polish company specializing in process transport systems, is marking 20 years in business.

The interesting history of this rapidly developing company is best proof that a business can progress from one thousand dollars to one thousand employees thanks to entrepreneurial skills.

The beginnings of the company date back to 1991. The then-President of the Management Board and Managing Director of Transsystem, Stanisław Sroka, together with three of his friends, launched a company to manufacture simple steel structures. Over the next 10 years, the small company employing 14 people developed into an enterprise managed to modern standards and capable of handling comprehensive manufacturing and assembly projects for automated process transport systems, mainly those for the automotive industry. The company quickly entered the most demanding markets and became a partner for the world’s largest companies. One spectacular success was that it entered the Chinese market when a complete process transport system was supplied to the Volkswagen factory in Changchun.

To support the company’s growth, in January 2001 Transsystem’s managers decided to transform the company into a project-oriented organization. The undertaking qualified for the finals of the International Project Management Award competition alongside the best projects in Europe and walked away with a prize.

The years 2003-2006 marked a further period of rapid development for the company. Transsystem carried out contracts for Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, Jaguar and BMW factories, among other customers. It also manufactured process lines for all General Motors factories worldwide.

A crisis at the end of 2006 forced the company’s managers to expand Transsystem’s product range. The company began offering its services to industries such as power engineering, mining and tourism. New services included the manufacture of state-of-the-art steel structures, public transport systems and bulk transport systems for materials such as coal, gypsum and biomass. Currently, 50 percent of the company’s revenues are from contracts in the power engineering industry.

The company has its headquarters in Wola Dalsza in the southeast of Poland, with branch offices in Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic and Ukraine.
