Year 1976

In this year our company was established as a family business with headquarter in Józefów. The company has craft guild roots and traditions. Its first contracts are signed with Cegielski Eterprises in Poznań, Logistics Services of the Army and with other Polish industrial plants. Initially, the production line focuses on spare parts for ships and plastic molding injection machines (we made almost 6000 machines).

The 1980s
 

- Despite harsh conditions for running a business caused by the introduction of the martial law PZM Wimet manages to persist on the market. The company attracts new clients. Within the governmental “anti-import” program PZM Wimet cooperates with Polmozbyt affiliates (state-owned automotive giant) in whole Poland and manufactures spare parts for busses and trucks.
 
- The company officially adopts its present name – PZM Wimet. This is followed by strong commitment to the brand building policy and the emphasis on quality, punctuality and consumer satisfaction. Such determined behavior is rewarded with a significant number of new contracts, including export. PZM Wimet produces pump spare parts for Sigma Holding in Czechoslovakia and tow hooks for several partners in Austria.

The 1990s

- The dramatic political and economic transformation in early 1990s (from centrally planned to market economy) brings both, opportunities and threats for business, also in the scope of PZM Wimet. The market liberalization forces the companies to expand their offer and improve their competitiveness, on the other hand however leads to market destabilization. The latter implies several bankruptcies of many client firms and thus the withdrawals of contracts.
- Despite very instable environment and unexpected expenditures PZM Wimet continues to develop. Being on the grounds of new economic reality it receives many rewards such as “Fair Play Enterprise”, “The Leader of Entrepreneurship”, “Teraz Polska” nomination, “The Reliable Partner”, etc.
- The company invests in the infrastructure of the office, the production line and enhances the comfort of clients (new parking places and general expansion of the headquarters). The purchase of new machines, the adoption and implementation of new technological solutions are all cornerstone for the introduction of Quality Management System. The offer has been expanded by automotive spare parts production and distribution.
 
- The company volunteers to be audited by the environment protection body and obtains first class status in the field of being an environment friendly enterprise.

The 2000s

The audit conducted by Veritas Quality International approves the standards adopted by the company.
Remaining in compliance with the requirements enables PZM Wimet to receive several fund donations from the EU and the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Poland for the development and quality improving purposes.
