1991

The company Kovaco was founded under the original name IDČ KOVAČiĆ - this name of a small private company corresponded to the name of its founder Ing. Juraj Kovačiča (1940 - 2017). Our founder Mr. Ing. Juraj Kovačič was an ambitious businessman who was constantly looking for solutions to make his welding work easier for his employees. Therefore, he began to develop procedures that would increase not only productivity, but also accuracy and ergonomics at work.

1991 - 1994

Welding positioners immediately became very popular in both large factories and smaller companies. During this period, the first deliveries of welding positioners to major engineering companies in Czechoslovakia were made. The positioners excelled when working with large weldments, while ensuring the safety of workers in the first place.

1999

At the turn of the millennium, the name of the company was changed from IDČ KOVAČIČ to KOVACO. This name change signaled the company's transformation and new challenges for its employees and management.

2006

Based on customer demand, a comprehensive and specific solution for its production was developed. For the first time, a welding positioner with programmable axis control was delivered.It was again an innovative solution with an emphasis on customer needs.

2007

The responsibility was transferred and the company was gradually taken over by the founder's son. Ing. Igorom Kovačič, who continued the mission of building a successful and prosperous company.  This moment made KOVACO an official family business. As a result, friendly relationships with our employees and customers have become even stronger and more significant.

2012

The long-term development of positioners that would be able to work with a welding robot has reached a successful climax. Tests were conducted in which KOVACO positioners successfully cooperated with welding robots.  It was a significant step in the automation of production processes.

2012 - 2020

As Kovaco became the leader on the Slovak market, it was necessary to expand its operations beyond Slovakia. The company began to grow and become a global player. Thanks to the entry into the markets of the European Union, KOVACO began to expand its operations in Eastern Europe and gradually the products reached the whole world.

2021

KOVACO celebrates its 30th anniversary. The company has successfully overcome all modern pitfalls and has managed to grow steadily. It currently manufactures up to 100 positioners.
