Iron foundry

In its more modern form, the company started operating in 1947, thus continuing the hundred years long family tradition of metal processing. The basic idea behind the company’s launch was metal casting production for the Croatian Railways.

Brake parts for railway transport

During the 1990’s we started the development and we adopted production of brake equipment for railway vehicles, and we gradually become the leading and the only verified Croatian company in the development of brake equipment for railway vehicles. Our expertise was confirmed by a number of awards and contracts with leading companies in the railway industry in our country and region, leading us to obtaining a series of tenders related to the brake equipment in the railway industry.

A gift to the capital town

The greatest donation in newly formed Croatia was restoring the ban Josipa Jelačić monument, gifted to the city of Zagreb.

New millenium

In the beginning of 2001, we started a new company UPIG Ltd. with the aim of gaining market share in the segment of street furniture (benches, garbage cans, tram and bus stations, bicycle racks, etc.). In cooperation with foreign companies, UPIG gradually invested in renewable energy sources in the Republic of Croatia.

VENTAL Company Ltd., as the third member of our group, started its work in 2007, with a main idea of becoming a national leader in the equipment manufacturing for indoor and outdoor track vehicles (seats, produced from polyester, polyurethane, etc). Constant investment in modernization and production, as well as education of employees quickly brought us to the top of targeted market. Later, the product range expanded to the production of metal structures, with special attention on welding.

UPIG and VENTAL were later merged with Šela proizvodnja d.o.o.
