Nature of site

The former Závod důlní mechanizace (The mining mechanisation plant – further only ZDM), Uranové doly Příbram (Uranium mines Příbram – further only UD Příbram) was built between 1981 - 1986 during several phases to satisfy the needs of the UD Příbram’s mining activities.

Heavy machinery was produced in the plant; activities consisted mainly of manufacturing and repairs of mining locomotives and trucks.

Shortly before privatisation the ZDM was renamed as ORTAS a.s. (Joint-stock Co.) and remained under this name through the changes of ownership until February 2007.
