Historical and archaeological evidence proves the ancient existence of the iron industry in the Podbrdská region. They also prove the century-old tradition of Komárovské železárny, the predecessor of today’s BUZULUK a.s.
According to ancient archival records, the year 1460 is the historical year for the establishment of the iron industry in Komárová. The first production process at its foundation, as history states, was foundry production in 1460.

Since its foundation, the Komárovské železárny have been undergoing an extensive development.
