The Company has got its registered office in Brzezinka and was founded in the place of a former Stock Company: Zjednoczone Fabryki Maszyn i Samochodów „Oświęcim” [United Machines and Cars Factories “Oświęcim”] which, in a prewar Poland, manufactured very popular cars called “Oświęcim- Praga”. There were also manufactured motor tracks and cars among which we can distinguish the following models: Piccolo, Alfa, Mignon and Grand.
Vehicles were advertised by the company’s famous customers, including Jan Kiepura and Wojciech Kossak, who in autumn of 1933, in a letter to his wife, wrote:
“… I sold a Cadillac and bought an Oświęcim-Praga on unbelievable conditions; eight cylinders, sparkling new, with all the gadgets.”
Prewar times meant new challenges. Dynamic development of mining industry was responsible for the development of mining machines industry in Poland. It was then when Factory of Spare Parts and Mining Machines OMAG was founded. It was the first spare part manufacturer which was later also known as lifting device and small diametrical drill rigs manufacturer. Transformation of the economy and situation in mining industry in the 90’s were the reason why in 1993 the company renamed itself and changed its form and structure. Machine and Device Factory “OMAG” defined its main priorities among which new markets expansion became one of the most important. Nowadays, except for products manufactured for mining industry needs, which are the leading part of business activity, OMAG is also a car spare parts manufacturer.
The OMAG Machine and Equipment Plant manufactures machines and equipment for the mining industry as well as parts for the motorization sector.
The company also provides machining, thermochemical treatment, welding and wet painting.
