The years 2007-2016 denoted a continuation of industry acquisitions on the Polish market.
Famur expands its product portfolio by entering the area of surface mining. The competition of Famur and Kopex on both the domestic and foreign markets continues to increase. Famur achieves record results and continuously optimizes its operations. At the turn of 2013 and 2014, TDJ buys 10% of Kopex shares.
