History[edit]

Kompaniivka was founded in the second half of 18th century on the left bank of the Suhokleya-Komyshuvata river, a tributary of the Inhul. The settlers were former Cossacks Kompaniiskyi regiments. They had been Hetman light cavalry, whose were guarding the southern and western borders and providing an intelligence service. Probably this happened after the reform of October 24, 1775.

Before the soldiers arrived, there were farmers growing wheat, rye, barley and oats and raising livestock. The lands and the peasants farming them were taken over by the nobility in 1782.[3]

Military reform caused a significant settlement of former Kompaniian. After retirement they were assigned to a particular social status, such as (Burghers, peasants or Cossacks.

In July 1933, the village became the center of the newly created district of Odessa Oblast.[4] In 1965, Kompaniivka received the status of an urban-type settlement (town).
