TATRA METALURGIE was established as a corporation resulting from the merger of Tafonco a.s. and Taforge a.s. in 2016. It is a direct successor of both companies and therefore the successor of a long tradition of casting and forging production in Kopřivnice, which from the outset has been connected with the production of vehicles - first carriages and railway carriages up to the production of cars and trucks.

The historic roots of these production segments date back to the mid-19th century when Ignac Sustala began to produce carriages and buggies in Kopřivnice (former Nesselsdorf), and laid the foundation for the later establishment of TATRA car maker, the third oldest in the world and the oldest in Central Europe.
