The story of three generations
Metalkas is an intensively developing family company with Polish capital.
The company was founded by Tadeusz Franciszek Grzenia in 1957. At the beginning, the plant had only a few employees. In 1967, a prototype of a metal case with a double bottom was created, which began a new stage in the history of Metalkas.
After the sudden death of the founder of the company, his son Tadeusz Grzenia (President of the Management Board of Metalkas until mid-2020) built a plant with an area of about 1000 sq2. m in Lisi Ogon. This allowed to outline new directions for the company’s development. Investments in machinery, expanding the range of products and expansion to new markets have contributed to the global development of the Metalkas, Bayersystem and Grzenia brands, which is confirmed by numerous certificates and awards.
In recent years, the company has completed record-breaking investments related to the development of the machine park, which from the beginning were carried out by Jacek Grzenia, President of the Management Board and Adam Grzenia, the Vice-President.
Between mid-2020 to 2022, the only shareholders and members of the management board of the company were Adam and Jacek Grzenia. At that time, a new chapter in the history of Metalkas began, related to the robotization of production processes, a significant increase in efficiency and the acquisition of large-scale online distribution channels. In 2022, Sławomir Cieślak joined the Management Board of Metalkas S.A. as Member of the Management Board for Finance.
Research and development activities are the key elements of the development strategy of Metalkas, which has been consistently implemented for several years. The company is currently implementing multi-million projects financed by the National Centre for Research and Development under the Smart Development Operational Program 2014-2020.
Thanks to the stable position on the market, business partners and customers can count on the support of a reliable partner who has been conducting its activity for 65 consecutive years.
