3Xtrim Aircraft Factory
|Privately held company|
The company was established by former SZD sailplane engineer Adam Kurbiel in 1996 under the name Wytwórnia i Naprawa Konstrukcji Lekkich - A. Kurbiel. The company hired many of the out of work aerospace workers who had been employed at the sailplane manufacturer. The company name was changed to Zakłady Lotnicze 3Xtrim Sp.z o.o. in November 1999. The company seems to have gone out of business in 2014.
The company name 3Xtrim was intended to be a double entendre, referring to the aircraft designs being "triple trimmed" (or more exactly “triple-tested”) during the design, prototype and production stages and also that the aircraft are designed for “extreme conditions”. In English the company name is pronounced “Three-Extreme”.
