There is a long tradition of foundries in Třinec. The first foundry was built in 1842, three years after the founding of Třinecké železárny. Foundries have always had an important role in the production process. All iron was produced in blast furnaces during the first thirty years and was processed at foundries. At that time, commercial castings were primarily produced. Main production was gradually shifted to rolling mills and foundries started fulfilling a service-oriented role. Their technical and technological development was connected with the needs of the ironworks, and with the passage of time, to other metallurgical enterprises in Czechoslovakia (especially in the Moravian-Silesian region). After 1989, there was a need to focus on areas other than metallurgical production. Foundries had to take on the role of a service provider for metallurgical and other commercial companies. For this reason,  Slévárny Třinec, a.s. was launched as a subsidiary of Třinecké železárny in late March 1999.
