The tradition of the company known in the past as TOS Hulín originated in 1949 when the machinery plant began to be built in Hulín. The company had passed through several development periods of machinery manufacturing and in 1951 the company’s activity was specialized in manufacturing of machine tools, especially of vertical lathes. In 1959 the company manufactured the first vertical lathe with continuous feeds and with the NC line motion control system equipped with the copying attachment. This vertical lathe was made on the basis of the company’s own documentation. The plant started manufacturing this generation of machines as one of the first ones in the world. The well proved vertical lathes with the automatic tool exchange performed from the tool magazine having fifteen positions were manufactured here as early as in 1974. During the time period of its existence the company has delivered more than 13 500 machine tools to 60 countries in the world. The company’s target is to keep the cooperation with foreign partners and customers also in the future and to develop it even more. The vertical lathes made by TOSHULIN, a. S. Work reliably in hard production conditions very often for many dozen years.
