The beginnings of the foundry industry in Kużnia Raciborska dates back to the XIX century, when nearby the already existing rolling mill shop there was built a small iron foundry, which cast bushings for axle wagons and carts. The proper development of foundry starts after World War I, when production of castings for mining and agriculture machinery began.

After the Second World War, there were further developments of the foundry.

In between years 1945 – 1980 new facilities were built: warehouse aisle, foundry No II, refinery and pattern warehouse and wood dryer.

As a result of separation of the casting section from the structures of Machine Tools Factory “RAFAMET” plc, on 1st February 1996 the Foundry “RAFAMET” Ltd was established. The 100% shareholders of our foundry is Machine Tools Factory “RAFAMET” plc.
