History:

400 years ago, in 1620, Melhior Puc, an ironsmith and miner from the Labot Valley, brought a concession for two melting furnaces to Črna na Koroškem and set up the first ironworks at Mušenik. This important act in the Mežiška Valley meant the beginnings of one of today’s most important economic activities in the Republic of Slovenia, steel industry. The milestone in the steel heritage will be honored this year with many activities throughout the year in the municipalities of Ravne na Koroškem, Prevalje, Mežica and Črna na Koroškem, under the auspices of SIJ Group, SIJ Metal Ravne.

»Ravne developed in the past thanks to steel, and in the present it is developing alongside steelworks. Steel is the everlasting 'anchor' that cannot be destroyed, mainly because of the knowledge that has been generated here in the past and now. The town is based on a steel tradition that allowed for growth and prosperity, which is why today, among the people, steel is still associated with the phrase 'mother factory'. The company and the local community provided basic assets for the operation of many societies, and members invested their free time, thus contributing their share to the public good of the urban environment. Steelworking has placed the municipality of Ravne on the map of quality products, technological advancement and general development of the area, and has also enabled the development of various leisure activities, culture and sports. Steel is thus not only part of our heritage, it is part of our present and as I believe part of a bright future as well« said dr. Tomaž Rožen, Mayor of Ravne na Koroškem.

»The tradition of this important industry in Koroška region goes back millennia. After all, in times of the Roman Empire, the present-day area of ​​the Mežiška Valley was part of the Noricum Kingdom, known for its high-quality 'Noricum steel'. Even in the Middle Ages, blacksmiths and nail workshops were mentioned near the Guštanj Square. The development of modern steelworks in the Mežica valley is connected to the historical facts dating back to the beginning of the Thirty Years' War in Europe, in 1620, when Melhior Puc, an ironsmith and miner from the Labot Valley, brought a concession for two melting furnaces to Črna na Koroškem and set the foundations of the first ironworks in Mušenik« said dr. Karla Oder, curator and museum councilor at the Koroška Regional Museum, Museum Ravne na Koroškem
