Qualiform Zrt.Company history
The company QUALIFORM ZRT. was founded on January 8, 2007 as the legal successor to BT Holding Qualiform Kft. (1995-2007). The 100% Hungarian company is located in Apc, Heves county..
The history of the Foundry in Apc dates back to 1946. At that time Qualital was registered in Budapest, which can be associated with the name of Márton Solti. This company was a typical small company, a foundry that was able to adapt quickly to the market situation and into which the co-owners invested all their expertise, management experience and working hours.
- In 1949 the company was nationalized and the Qualital National Light Metal Company was founded.
- During the planning period between 1961 and 1965, it became known that the company was included in the list of companies to be relocated from Budapest. Developments in Budapest were limited and the company received the site in Apc in the final year of the planning period, where it would later continue its operations.
- The governess systems of economic policy were further developed, the autonomy of companies strengthened and the forms of management democratized.
- On July 1, 1985, a completely independent company called Qualital Light Metal Foundry was founded.
- In 1992 the state company began to be liquidated.
- In 1994, BT. Holding Qualiform Kft bought the assets from the liquidator.
- In 1995 BT.Holding Qualiform Kft started operations.
