From tractors to forging

The first Z25 tractor was constructed on 15 March 1946, with the name ZETOR. The word was created by the combination of the name ZET (used by the Zbrojovka Brno factory) and OR from the word tractor.

In 1954, we began to specialize in bearing forgings, whose production, along with the production of forgings for the tractor sector, later moved to new production facilities.
