In the interwar period, the company Vítkovické horní a hutní těžířstvo manufactured stationary engines under licence from German engineering companies.

The engines were all equipped with one cylinder, and they varied in the number of revolutions per minute. They could be placed on a cart, sleigh, or attached to a construction. The engine was started by a crank handle.
