Gdynia Shipyard

It was founded in 1922. In 1970, workers of Gdynia Shipyard rose up against the ruling Polish Communist Party. About 20 people died fighting with army and police in the streets of Gdynia during the Polish 1970 protests. That fact had a great influence on creating the Solidarity in 1980. In 1998 it bought the Gdańsk Shipyard. Current name is Stocznia Gdynia S.A.
