In the 1970s, the production of electric hoists and household appliances (cookers) increased significantly.

In 1988 the first hand pallet truck is produced and in 1990 – the first wood burning stove.After 1989, the company went through a difficult transition, but found a market to realize the traditions and quality with European and Russian partners.
