History of SZVK

In connection with the development in the field of stone industry in Slovakia after 1989, (when there was a significant slowdown in production) a situation arose that required the establishment of the Slovak Association of Aggregate Manufacturers (SZVK). The idea of establishing such an association came from representatives of Road Construction in Košice.

SZVK was established as an independent, professional, voluntary, non-profit association of entities operating in the field of mining and processing of natural aggregate, mining and production of crushed aggregate and its subsequent use, in the field of stone production and mining of decorative stone blocks.

The founding members’ meeting of SZVK was held on 21 April 1998 in Košice.

Founding members of SZVK:

Road construction, a. s., Košice

East Slovak quarries and gravel sands, š. Mr. in liquidation, Spišská Nová Ves

ŠTRKKOM, spol. s.r.o., Komárno

Cestné stavby, spol. with r. o., Liptovský Mikuláš

The founding agreement on the establishment of an interest association of legal persons was concluded on 27 April 1998. SZVK as an interest association of legal persons was registered at the Regional Office in Košice on 29 September 1998.
