The beginnings of the factory[edit]

In 1952, a decision was made to use a former German armaments factory in Jelcz-Laskowice near Oława for production in new western Poland. A company called "Zakłady Budowy Nadwozi Samochodowych" ("Factory for building car-bodies") was established. After reconstruction of the factory the company started to develop and build car-bodies for Lublin and Star trucks. The company built buses like the Jelcz PR110D.

Since 2004 Jelcz-Komponenty Sp. z OO concentrates on producing heavy trucks for military (for example WR-40 Langusta platform). Since 2012 sole owner of the Jelcz-Komponenty Sp. z OO is Huta Stalowa Wola SA.
