IDEX 2021: CSM industry debuts at IDEX with its military excavator together with International Golden Group UAE
The history of CSM INDUSTRY began in Czechoslovakia in 1967. In 1976, the production of the legendary universal finishing machine UDS started. In 50 years, more than 30,000 UDS machines and construction mechanisms have been manufactured and exported worldwide. The machine is designed primarily to support the Army Engineers and has its application wherever it is necessary to intervene immediately to save lives and property, natural and natural disasters, fires, and industrial disasters. It also plays an important role in military deployment, in providing technical means and structures supporting the activities of combat units.

The CSM believes that in the future it will be able to continue as a traditional representative of the domestic defense industry in United Arab Emirates under the umbrella of International Golden Group (IGG) in further modernization of the needs of the Armed Forces and will cover increasingly demanding development requirements. "As a military manufacturer of excavators, we are ready to face new challenges in modernizing military equipment and meeting the demanding requirements of the Armed Forces, as evidenced by recent international agreements with leading defense giants such as Rheinmetall Germany, IVECO Defense Vehicles Italy, Plasan Israel or BEML in India. The development of joint projects on 6x6 and 8x8 car chassis moves the company CSM with its UDS and Slovakia back among the major players in the defense industry, "said chairman Tomáš Maroš at the opening ceremony.
The Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic (NATO member) recently took over five new UDS Military Excavators from the traditional Slovak production company CSM Industry and will continue to replace all 30 machines used by the army during its modernization period.
