1948 – 1959
The history of Turdeana began in 1948, when it was founded as a tinsmith and knife production workshop, with 12 workers. In 1949 it changed its name into “Turdeana Handicraft Production Co-operative”. Surrounded by the big factories from the industrial platform, Turdeana tried out several objects of activity, but the main object remained metallurgy.

In 1959 this unit changes its name into “Turdeana Local Industry Unit”, and in 1979, based on Decree no. 259/1979, Turdeana is transformed into the “Turdeana Automobile Accessories and Spare Parts Factory” (“F.A.P.S. “Turdeana”), subordinated to the Piteşti-Colibaşi Automobile Plant, in order to serve the production of Dacia, Oltcit and Aro automobiles.
In this period, besides the production of the parts used in the automobile factories, Turdeana also produced various pressed parts, wire parts, automobile spare parts, products for the electro-technical industry, products for constructions, products for the wood industry and spare parts for agricultural machinery.
