As early as 1951, the company “Závod Slovenského národního povstania” (“Plant of the Slovak national uprising”) was established for the production of primary aluminum, in which foundries were gradually built. To complete the production, an aluminum profile press was built at the beginning and the production of aluminum wires and aluminum-steel (AlFe) ropes was established. Technology for the production of wires and ropes was transferred to Žiar nad Hronom from Kovohutí Děčín. Twelve wire pulls and six machines were mounted and put into operation in 1967.

“With ABRA Gen we have all the necessary information right at hand. ABRA Gen has brought the overview and data compatibility into our production.”
“The first 350/6 aluminum-steel rope was manufactured in September 1967,” speaks about the history of the business Jozef Barniak, Laná’s business specialist. “In the following years, the average annual production was 10000 tonnes of ropes. The range of ropes has grown, and the number of new customers has also grown. “
In the following years, production stabilized at 18,000 tons a year, mainly with exports to the former Soviet Union. After its collapse, the annual production was reduced to 8000 tons.
In the 1990s, exports grew to Austria, Lithuania, Ukraine, Turkmenistan and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the war that destroyed Bosnia and Herzegovina, AlFe rope renewed mainly high-voltage networks.
Modernization of production
In the period 1992-2001, the rope factory was a part of the company Alufinala.s. This period is characterized by the modernization of the machines and the great competition for the customer. The company wanted to offer quality in particular and thus focused on the quality shift in the field of modernization of the machines. An example might be to replace the obsolete braking system in the bobbins with modern computer control.
