Factory AD POLET IGK was founded in 1907 by Istvan Vagner, who was attracted by the presence of quality raw materials, developed railway and water transport at that time and available labor, which together enabled the realization of a good profit. The factory then employed about 300 seasonal workers.
Owners of the most important factories for the production of tiles and bricks in Central Europe at the time, Bon brothers, are buying a factory from founder Istvan Wagner on December 13, 1922. In those years Bon’s steam brick and tile factory produced 3,000,000 tile pieces and 500,000 pieces of bricks.
After the Second World War, the factory goes to the state property. The main activities were directed towards the modernization of the production process, the purchase of equipment for the production of full-brick machinery, the construction of an industrial track and the opening of a new clay field with transport-powered wagons.
The intensive development of Polet begins in 1960. The first modern factory for the production of clay blocks is being built. During this period electrification of clay factory was carried out and steam drive was thrown out. In 1966, another newly built plant, a plant for the production of ceramics, was launched – the first plant of its kind in former Yugoslavia. In the period from 1971 to 1975, two new plants were built, Clay plant 2 and Clay plant 3, in which the latest state-of-the-art technology for the production of clay tiles was applied for the time being.
At the beginning of 1975, the construction of the gas pipeline and distribution network was completed, and in this way, a new technological fuel was provided for the entire company – natural gas.
By privatization in March 2003, AD POLET IGK became a member of Nexe Group A.D. from Našice whose member is still a member. The factory employs 250 workers today and produces over 30,000,000 pieces of roof tiles annually.
