Gestra, s.r.o. was founded. Shortly after the foundation, Gestra established cooperation with Porsfeld, a German manufacturer of the well known paving-stone splitting machines HSM 200x280/45t. After the end of Porsfeld, Gestra started its own production of splitting machines and development of other machinery and accessories for the stone-splitting industry.
The biggest stone-splitting machine in the world at that time – HSM 2000x1000/800t was produced.
Production was extended by another factory building.
Gestra CZ was founded. The production structure was reorganized because of the increasing interest in Gestra' splitting machines and to increase efficiency in the future, Gestra s.r.o. was divided in two independent companies: the original Gestra s.r.o. and the new company Gestra CZ, s.r.o.
This new company targets on manufacturing, assembling and delivery of machines Gestra and original company Gestra, s.r.o. targets the production of components, spare parts and ensures service for Gestra machines.
Both companies cooperate together.
For one of our German clients we have produced the biggest stone splitting machine for blocks in the world - HSM 2000x1200/640t. The advantage of this big splitting machine is that it is designed for the purpose of transportation to another quarry if customer needs. This design concept was made at customer's request.
