The history of our company began in 1910. It was then that we started industrial-scale limestone extraction in Sitkówka.
1922 – 1930
In 1922 we launched the first kiln and before the end of the decade we built two more kilns of Koern type, a mill for the production of milled lime, and a milling plant for limestone.
1945 – 1956
The war years in our history are both a period of nationalization and reconstruction of the entire limestone industry in Kielce, Sitkówka and Sobków regions.
1970 – 1977
The 1970s was the time of dynamic development for the company. In 1970 we launched 100C shaft kilns at the "Kowala" Lime Production Plant. Production capacity of each of the six kilns increased to as much as 120 tons per day. In the years 1974–1975 we set up a Lime Production Plant "Trzuskawica". At that time the operation consisted of 12 of 100C shaft kilns, three production lines for hydrated lime, a very modern milling plant and a limestone production line with its capacity of about 4 ml tons. In 1977 we decided to merge "Kowala" and "Trzuskawica" Production Plants and so Limestone Production Plant "Trzuskawica" was established.
1983 – 1988
In the 1980s we built and launched two additional shaft and milling kilns, achieving a maximum production volume of quicklime in 1988 – nearly 1 ml of tons.
9 years later, in 1997, "Trzuskawica" Limestone Production Plant was transformed from a state-owned enterprise into a company fully owned by the State Treasury, and since then it was operating under the name of Limestone Processing Plant "Trzuskawica" S.A.
The year 2003 could be called another milestone in the history of the company. Limestone Production Plant "Trzuskawica" S.A. was bought by a private Irish group Cement Roadstone Holding (CRH), which is a global leader in the production of building materials. In the same year Trzuskawica S.A. bought the Lime Production Plant "Kujawy Lime”
After four years, "Trzuskawica" and "Kujawy Lime" merged into a single company to be able to operate even more efficiently.
2010 – 2011
The beginning of the last decade is the time of intensive expansion for our company. We then bought granite quarry "Gniewków", basalt quarry "Targowica" and sandstone quarry "Osielec".
In 2013 we changed the name from Limestone Production Plant "Trzuskawica" to "Trzuskawica" S.A. We have been operating under this name ever since, constantly developing our company and optimistically looking ahead at what the future holds for us.
