History[edit]

In 1952, a decision was made to use a former German armaments factory in Jelcz-Laskowice near Wrocław 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.

In 1974 the Polish expedition on Lhotse crossed the road from Warsaw to Nepal by car Jelcz 316. In 1975 the expedition of the Wrocław Mountain Club on Broad Peak Central, crossed the road from Wrocław to Islamabad by car Jelcz 315-M. 9000 km were run between 2-21 May.

Since 2004 Jelcz Sp. z o.o. concentrates on producing heavy trucks for armed forces, mainly Siły Zbrojne Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej (for example WR-40 Langusta platform). Since 2012 sole owner of the Jelcz sp. z o.o. is Huta Stalowa Wola SA, part of the Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa SA.
