The bronze factory "Norblin i Spółka" was established in 1820 at ul. Długa in Warsaw. Table decorations and cooking utensils were made there. With time, it was moved to Krakowskie Przedmieście, and finally to ul. Chłodna Street, next to which a shop with bronze, silver and silver products was opened.

In the 1860s, Ludwik Norblin established a partnership with his brother-in-law Teodor Werner, the owner of a Warsaw paint for silver products. On the other hand, in the 1880s, he bought the Plates factory of the Buch Brothers with the exclusive use of their production.

In 1886, he decided to move his entire enterprise to ul. Żelazna, giving it the name "Factory of plated products of the merged companies Norblin and Spółka - Bracia Buch". AfterDuring the Second World War, the Metal Factory Joint Stock Society he founded was nationalized, operating under the name of Walcowania Metali "Warszawa" .
