AKPIL is a family company located in Pilzno and established by Kazimierz Anioł in 1975. The company initially specialised in the craft production of construction products. In 1985, while seeking new areas for growth in order to cope with a worsening crisis in the construction industry, AKPIL turned its attention to agriculture.
Purchasing Spółdzielnia Kółek Rolniczych’s (Farmers Associations Cooperative) facilities in 1992 was a turning point in the history of the company. AKPIL significantly increased production of agricultural machinery, at one time employing 340 people.
They currently employ 450 permanent staff . Despite the smaller workforce, the company's output is now greater than it was when staff numbers were at their peak. This has been made possible by implementing modern technology at the plant.
