History in images

The very first day in the history of SPOLCHEMIE was 13 February 1856, when the joint stock company named the “Austrian Association for Chemicals and Metallurgical Production” was established at the palace of the Duke of Schwarzenberg in Vienna, the centre of the then Austrian Empire. It took only one year to start chemicals production in the then small provincial town of Ústí nad Labem. The established company had a key influence on forming the structure of the Czech chemicals industry during the industrial revolution as well as in the 20th century, and on the development of the city of Ústí nad Labem itself.
