KRUŠIK – THE BATTERY FACTORY has a long tradition of producing reliable, competitive, high quality batteries that are designed according to the ordered specifications of our customers in transport, aerospace and diverse industrial applications, for more than half a century.
Today, after many transformations, we operate as a part of Holding Corporation Krušik.
Our beginnings date back to 1957 when we operated as Plant 1 in Krusik, a company that was soon to become one of the most prominent companies in this part of Europe. Nowadays, we operate as Holding Corporation Krušik. The first Ni-Cd battery to be produced was labeled MB-1, after the initials of the engineer Misa Bugarinovic, whose design and technology was used in its production.
Producing batteries, miners’ equipment, battery lighting, and other at a later point in time, we experienced transformations from plant, work unit, the one time OUR, OOUR, and RO (Joint Work Organization, Main Joint Work Organization, and Work Organization) to a shareholders’ company. We were a socially-, i.e. state-owned company.
Our factory was privatized in 2007. To our great joy, from October 2015 we operate within Holding Corporation Krušik, as Operating unit – 6 The Battery Factory.
