KONŠTRUKTA-Defence, a.s. is a successor company of KONŠTRUKTA Trencín, National Enterprise, founded in 1953 in the city of Trencín after a defense division of ŠKODA Plzen, Czech Republic, was moved to Dubnica nad Váhom, a town located in the north-west Slovakia nearby Trencín. Later in 1957 KONŠTRUKTA built a sophisticated testing facility known as the Testing Operation at Lieskovec, which came closer to its aim - to ensure developmental of military equipment projects in its own workplaces and to eliminate travelling of designers to distant places and to ensure the projects without useless over-costs wasted on transport, accommodation and boarding.

In terms of the government’s Programme Declaration, we support the Slovak arms industry at the maximum possible rate. Each new product stands for an evidence, that our defence companies still have a lot to offer,” stated the minister.
