The company's history

The history of the company dates back to 1911 when Wilhelm Gilla established the first blacksmith workshop in Zblewo on Główna Street. His son, Maksymilian Gilla, like his father, was a well-known and respected blacksmith who specialized in horseshoeing and the production of agricultural machinery.

The next generation, Roman Gilla, laid the foundation for today’s Gillmet company in Starogard Gdański. Together with his son, Błażej, he built the Steel Construction Manufacturing Plant in Rokocin and the Hot-Dip Galvanizing Plant in Starogard Gdański.

Currently, Group of Gillmet  Sp. z o.o. comprises four plants:

Steel Service Center in Starogard Gdański

The Steel Service Center in Starogard Gdański was established with European Union funding in 2012. It is equipped with specialized CNC machines including press brakes, guillotines, turret punch presses, plasma cutting machines, and a sheet straightening line. The center offers cutting, profiling, bending, and welding services for sheets. We manufacture various types of steel profiles such as Z-sections, omega profiles, channels, and troughs. Additionally, we produce components for wall facades. Our services include bending, cutting, and welding of sheet metal on a contract basis.

Steel Construction Manufacturing Plant in Rokocin

The Steel Construction Manufacturing Plant in Rokocin is our oldest facility, established in 1990. This plant boasts a rich array of machinery, including guillotines, MIG MAG welding equipment, presses, cutters, plate burners, and recently, a specialized laser for steel profiles. Its main focus is on manufacturing specialized steel structures used in the construction of steel halls and various industrial structures. The facility also features machining capabilities for the independent production of mechanical devices.

A unique aspect of the plant is equestrian production, including items such as horse boxes, stables, horse walkers, lunging arenas and various stable equipment.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing Plant in Starogard Gdański

The Hot-Dip Galvanizing Plant in Starogard Gdański was established within the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone in 2008. It includes a production hall covering 2000 m2 and an office space of 1000 m2. The galvanizing bath measures 7400 x 1350 x 2800 mm. In Starogard, we galvanize various steel structures, shipyard pipes, urban furnishings, gates, fences, and other metal products.

Adjacent to the galvanizing plant, a shot blasting facility and paint shop were established in 2016. Here, we offer services such as mechanical cleaning and wet painting. This allows us to provide both galvanizing and painting services, as well as the duplex method, which involves both galvanizing and painting processes.
