A Brief Company History
OBOD was founded in 1953 as a trading export-import company, but
since 1954 the company started to produce soaps, shoe polishers and other accessories. It was in the same year that the production
of fluorescent lighting fittings was initiated.
In 1956, OBOD expands its production scope in the domain of installation
materials, electrical measuring apparatuses and smaller electrical appliances.
The year of 1960 is marked by the establishment of a new scope of
production, the constituent parts of which were the following: refrigerators, lamps and protection switches.
Its further progress looked like this:
Electric motors for hermetically sealed compressors factory (with the ASPERA Italy);
Washing Machines factory (with the INDESIT Italy);
Chest Freezers factory (with the IBERNA Italy);
Ice Makers factory (with the IBERNA Italy);
Combined Refrigerators and Upright Freezers factory (with the BAUKNECHT Germany);
Wiring components (baskets and grills) factory;
Factory of thermal condensers;
Facilities renovation at the Refrigerators factory destroyed by the fire.
From that time on, there were no new
plants but there were some reconstructions due to the production range expanding and ruined equipment replacement.
