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.
he first AKPIL product was the Potato Planter we manufactured in 1984. We have also manufactured harvesting equipment for horse-drawn and tractor mowers , and hoe ridgers . The company has been developing its own designs since 1988. AKPIL’s first original design was a horse-drawn planter. The potato harvester developed in the design office we set up in 1991 was the first machine of its kind to be manufactured by a private company in Poland. This machine was honoured with the Award of the Agriculture Minister at the 1997 Jasnogórski Harvest Festival.
We 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.
