Dressta has a rich heritage and has grown to become a global manufacturer of heavy construction equipment, renowned for engineering durable, powerful machines for the toughest applications – from mining or landfill dozers, to oil and gas pipelayers.
All of their machinery is built by experienced engineers at their factory in Stalowa Wola, Poland – a town literally translated as ‘Will of Steel’. From this facility, their expertly crafted machines are supplied throughout Dressta’s network of regional distributors, who provide their end users with instant and easy communication to both the Dressta sales and technical teams.
Steeped in History
The Stalowa Wola factory was established in 1937 as a source of military equipment, but in time, thanks to a series of licensing agreements, it transformed into one of the major manufacturers of construction equipment in Central Europe – known as Huta Stalowa Wola (HSW).
Among its licensors were prominent companies including Jones Cranes, Coles Cranes, Clark Equipment, Stetter GmbH and International Harvester. The company has modernized over the years in line with constantly evolving customer expectations and environmental legislation, but Dressta machines still carry the ingenious design simplicity and sturdiness of the legendary International Harvester hardware.
In 2012, Dressta was acquired by LiuGong Machinery and renamed LiuGong Dressta Machinery. Through access to the Chinese market and a substantial injection of resources, the acquisition ensured an increase in manufacturing volume and efficiency – marking the start of a new chapter in the company’s history. Since then, Dressta has expanded distribution operations into Europe, Asia & Pacific, Middle East & Africa, North America and Latin America, and they support this with unrivalled technical support and expertise on all of their machines.
