Conditionally the history of integration can be divided into four periods:

II PERIOD: between the First and the Second World Wars (independent bourgeois Poland)
Mieczyslaw Volski transformed his pre-war enterprise in to "Agricultural Machinery and Equipment M. Wolski & Co." The production of the enterprise has made big success among the small polish farmers. There even was a network of the branches one of which was located in our favorite Lviv. The considerable share of production was on sale to the Soviet Russia.

After the communists took the power all the industry was taken away and nationalized. Lublin’s agricultural enterprises were united into one piece. Naturally, no new qualitative production wasn’t produced by nationalized unit. That is why in 1974 the German baller “FAHR HD-350” licence was bought which gain the Z-223 name. This machinery is manufactured by the enterprise still nowadays. It is slightly modernized and very popular Z-224 model today.
