This entity was privatized during 1994.
On March 29, 1991, PANAV joint-stock company was established, which was subsequently divided on the basis of a delimitation agreement with effect from 25 February 1993 into two separate entities JaS Jesenická strojírna corp. at Písečná u Jeseníku and PANAV, corp. at Senice na Hané.
Based on the delimitation of BSS in 1990, both units were separated from the national company Brandýské strojírny a slévárny, and on July 1, 1990, PANAV Senice na Hané was established.
In 1948, a national administration was introduced in the company and later it was incorporated into national company KAROSA Vysoké Mýto. At this time, an extensive reconstruction and modernization of production facilities was carried out. Construction continued even after the plant was incorporated into Brandýská strojírna and the foundry in 1956. Production capacity was gradually increased to 10,000 trailers per year. In 1968, the Písečná factory in Jeseník was added to the plant, built from a reconstructed pulp mill.
In 1942, the factory was bought by the company Foglar, headed by Mr. Josef Foglar, which, after repairing the buildings, started the production of towing cars and thus established a tradition of production, which is still carried out and being developed today.
In 1896 production facilities were built on the area in Senice na Hané, on the site of today's company headquarters, which replaced the original workshop of the factory founder Leopold Kašpar, built in 1894. The production of this period was focused on mill and agricultural machinery. During the global economic crisis in the early 1930s, the company fell into sales difficulties and stopped production in the pre-war years.
