The establishment of the company.
In response to the growing market demand for exhaust systems for commercial vehicles, Leszek Szostak launches the production of pipes for vehicles of the family’s STAR brand. After a few years, over 100,000 pipes were produced for these Polish trucks. In the following years, the range of products had increased by tubes made for trucks from various European brands.
Purchase of the first CNC bending machine.
The growing demand for Vanstar products and concern for the highest quality standards is leading to the purchase of the first numerically controlled bending machine. The new acquisition ensures higher production efficiency and a 100% repeatability of details.
Putting into service modern production facilities.
