The history of Trayal Corporation
Trayal Corporation nowadays is the largest company in Krusevac, reliable producer and one of the largest exporters in Serbia
By the decree of Milan Obrenović, in 1889, the “Gunpowder Works” was founded. During the first operating year, in 1892, it produced 37 tons of black powder. After World War I , the Military-Technical Bureau named “Obilićevo” arose by reconstruction and expansion. The new company consisted of ten factories. It employed 2000 workers and had a proprietary Scientific-developmental laboratory. It manufactured nitrocellulose gunpowder, activated carbons, protective masks, nitrotoluene explosives, other compounds etc.
After World War II , the company operating by the name of “Miloje Zakić” manufactured industrial explosives, activated carbons and protective masks. The production based on rubber processing started to develop in 1963 by manufacturing technical- rubber goods and tires for bicycles, mopeds and scooters. Based on the Contract of Joint Venture and Technology Transfer with French partners KLEBER, CIFAL, SETILEX from1974, the new factory TRAYAL was put into operation, with the annual production of around two million radial car tires. The production based on rubber processing was expanded, so “Obilicevo” manufactured tires for industrial transport, motocultivators, trailers, manual transport, etc. The production of protective devices dates back in 1925, when the production of the M-27 Protective Mask started.
The production of industrial explosives has the longest tradition. Besides black powder and nitrocellulose powder, the production of nitrotoluene explosive started in 1933, the production of industrial powdered explosive began in 1948, the production of cast explosive in 1974, and the production of liquid explosive of SLURRY type started in 1976, and many other explosives were produced some time later. “Miloje Zakić” was one of the rare manufacturers of pyrotechnical devices. The production program in this area also involves smoking devices and flammable devices.
After World War II , the entire classification of the products intended for personal and collective protection was developed.
Since June 28, 1995, the production of tires, protective devices and industrial explosives in the five factories with common services has been integrated into TRAYAL CORPORATION.
TRAYAL CORPORATION is a reliable manufacturer, which places its products onto the foreign market, which is the recognition of high quality and business efficiency, which is particularly taken care of in this company.
