Polish People's Republic (PRL) Period

The decision to build plants producing Nitrogen fertilizer in Puławy, was taken on December 19, 1960. It took nearly 5 years to build the plant. Ammonia and urea’s production was finally launched on 4 December 1966. In the years 1967-1970 production of carbon dioxide and dry ice has been started.[1]

In 1970 it was decided to build a caprolactam plant, and from 1975 to 1977 the first production line of melamine has been started.[2]

In the 1980s, the company made progress in reducing the works’ nuisance for the natural environment. The wastewater treatment plant was built right by the production line of caprolactam. At the same time, the range of artificial fertilizers was being improved. The two-component fertilizer, urea ammonium nitrate RSM (UAN)[3] was put into production for the first time.

Third Republic of Poland Period

On 1 September 1992, plants have been transformed into a Limited Liability Company and acquired its current name. On 14 November 1995, the production line of hydrogen peroxide was launched. On 15 December 1998, the company started the work on the installation producing sodium ortooksoboran (PBS). What is more, old production lines of urea and ammonia were modernized.[4]

In the years 2000-2004, two new production lines of melamine were launched in collaboration with Eurotecnica, so plant reached 10% share in world production of this compound.[5]

By 2005, the Treasury was the owner of the factory, holding 99,99% shares of the company. In 2005, the company was privatized by issuing shares on the Warsaw Stock Exchange; however, the Treasury remained the owner of a controlling interest.
