                      HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
                             & PROFILE

 Founded in 1904 under the name of “KLEIN” Works, as a Company specialized in
 weapons and military vehicle repairs.
 Starting from 1953, the works has reoriented its activity to Diesel engines and
 repairing of railroad containers for hazardous liquids, oil drilling equipment and
 other equipment for geological researches.
 In 1959, the works has initiated the fabrication of pressure vessels for chemical and
 petrochemical industry and started the building of new areas: Heavy Boiler Shop
 finalized in 1961 and Mechanical Forging Shop finalized in 1966.
 Since 1962 the works has been known as “UZUC” - Chemical Equipment Works,
 From 1969, the works has continued the building of new areas, like: extension of
 Heavy Boiler Shop, Machining Shop, Special Bearings Shop, Sandblasting Shop,
 Painting, Warehouses, yard storage areas and endowment of works with specific
 facilities: bending rollers, cutting, turning, milling, grinding, drilling machines,
 presses, welding equipment, heat treatment facilities, non-destructive equipment
 For solving the technical matters, in 1970 has been created the engineering dept.
 UZUC S.A. has assimilated and delivered equipment for the pilot Heavy Water
 Plant and has delivered for IRNE - Pitesti (actual RENEL - I.C.N. Pitesti)
 auxiliary equipment for the research nuclear reactor, under an US license.
 Also, UZUC S.A. was the main supplier for the chemical and petrochemical
 industry, producing equipment like the Stripper for Urea Plants (under
 STAMICARBON license), Heat Exchangers for the Ammonia Plants (under
 KELLOGG license), equipment for the Ethylene, high pressure and low pressure
 Polyethylene Plants.
 After 1980, UZUC S.A. has began the fabrication of nuclear equipment for NPP
 Cernavoda, from early stages, assimilating new technologies and materials,
 delegations from AECL, and other companies (General Electric, Babcok and
 Wilcox, 3-L Filters, Ansaldo a.s.o.) have visited UZUC S.A., issuing favorable
 reports. Then have been arranged the "White Rooms".

   After '80's year has been developed and implemented a Quality Assurance System
   in order to provide full compliance with customer's requirements.
   For facilitating the relationships with the existent refineries from country, in 1998
   has been built near the works a distribution station for petrol and diesel oil.
   Starting with February, 2002 we are fully private joint-stock company, being a part
   of Romanian Commercial Services (S.C.R.) Group.
