Gorenje was established in a tiny village that bears the same name. Initially, Gorenje was involved in the manufacture of agricultural machinery but in 1958 expanded its operations to the production of solid-fuel cookers.
Between 1961 and 1970 Gorenje extended its production to washing machines and refrigerators and became the leading household appliance manufacturer in Yugoslavia.
From 1971 to 1980, Gorenje began to take over other enterprises and the company at that time was present in almost every republic of Yugoslavia, employing over 20,000 people. Gorenje then established a distribution and sales network across Western Europe, further to which companies were set up in Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, Australia and Italy.
In 2006 Gorenje opened a new refrigerators and freezers Plant in Valjevo, Serbia, while in 2008 the company announced new designs of product lines, Gorenje Pininfarina Black and a new generation of cooking appliances.
Gorenje has led the way in manufacturing excellent and futuristic kitchen appliances.
