One of the oldest trades - so far as it known - is company NEVA, which was founded in 1793, by Mr. Vaclav Nekut - it was wheel-wright trade and steam saw mill.
Company was developed of that small trade (perhaps 10 staff) in a factory with 45 employers in 1940. In that time due of the last holder of Nekuts - Mr. Vaclav Nekut - had company greatest expansion. Company NEVA produced sporting needs, sledge, skis, hockey-sticks and further needs for agriculture, trailer for horses and for tractors, wheel-barrows, hand trucks, felloes and covers for foods and for machines, which was exported. Steam saw mill produced assortment of sawn woods for production and building purposes. The factory had one's own power station for own need of electricity.
