History of TDJ

1991-2001

TDJ - REGIONAL FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY

In 1991, the nucleus of TDJ’s activity, the AB Consulting company, was created. It dealt with investments, the creation of new companies, the development of business ventures and acquisitions of other companies. Jacek Domogała managed it independently. At that time, the company gained a market advantage by importing technologies from abroad and flexible adaptation to the extremely dynamic market.

2010–2017

TDJ - PRIVATE INVESTMENT COMPANY

The key date in the development of TDJ was 2010. As a result of his successful succession, Jacek’s son Tomasz Domogała took over control of the company, whose goal was the transformation of TDJ towards a modern investment company, conducting diversified business activities. The competitive position was strengthened by the consolidation of the market and intensive restructuring of TDJ companies. The focus was also on developing exports by implementing the Go Global strategy and continuing a conservative financial policy.
In connection with the diversification policy, in 2011 a decision was made to develop TDJ investment in the real estate sector, based on which TDJ Estate was established. At the same time, other investment areas were distinguished: Equity, Venture, Estate, Finance and Foundation.

1977-1990

TDJ - FAMILY BUSINESS

The brothers Jacek and Michał Domogała founded their first company in 1977. Initially, the Domogała brothers concentrated their activities in the horticultural sector – a low capital-intensive business, independent of limited production and raw material resources. As their capital began to accumulate, over the following years the entrepreneurs started to invest in other industries such as: footwear, food and automotive

2002-2009

TDJ - SILESIAN INDUSTRIAL HOLDING

The key success factor at this time was to focus on one industry and exit from the other business activities. In 2002, Jacek Domogała bought the FAMUR Machine Factory which was on the verge of bankruptcy. Within a few years, thanks to further acquisitions, he created the first company on the Polish market offering not only single machines or devices, but also comprehensive solutions for the mining industry. Residual and operational restructuring as well as conservative financial and trade policies were key in the entire process. In 2006, FAMUR raised 300 million PLN, through, among other means, an IPO on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. These funds were allocated for further development of the Group. In this way, Jacek Domogała built the foundations of TDJ, for which the upcoming years meant a dynamic process of change.

2018-2022

TDJ - A LEADING INVESTMENT COMPANY IN THE REGION OF CEE

A consequence of the implementation of the strategic assumptions adopted in 2010 was the development of a new TDJ strategy for 2018-2022. Its goal is to build long-term company value. TDJ will achieve this through effective investments based on anticipating trends, diversification of business activities, solid finances and being a preferred investor, creating significant added value for companies. Implementation of these effective investments will be possible thanks to the unique team of TDJ, which is made up of people sharing common values, having the highest competences, and great passion. The company wants to constantly strengthen this team, becoming the preferred employer for such people.
