History

The Company commenced operations in 1867 in Zywiec as small chemical manufacturer.
After a change in ownership in 1901, the Company moved into woodworking, first producing matches and then gradually expanding production into metal fabrication. In 1921 the Company started manufacturing more advanced chrome-plated steel furniture. In 1946 the Company was nationalized and became a state owned enterprise under the brand name Fabryka Mebli Stalowych "Wschód" w Zadzielu. It soon changed its profile to hospital furniture and became part of the Famed group of Polish medical equipment manufacturers. In 1964 a large infrastructure project included damming the Sola river, resulting in the flooding of the Famed’s original site. Famed moved its headquarters and manufacturing to Zywiec Zablocie, where it sits today.
