Short history

The Oradea Research – Development and Experimentation – Production Station was established in 1955 as a result of the development of concerns started in 1952 by the III North Oradea Expedition that belonged to the Forestry Design Institute (ISP) Bucharest, which operated between 1952-1954 in Satu Mare. In 1975, I.C.A.S. was mentioned for the first time. – The Oradea branch, in order to establish I.C.A.S. in 1977. – The Bistriţa branch, and only one design workshop remains in Oradea.

Oradea resort under I.C.A.S. – Bucharest was established in 1991 through reorganization, so that in 1999 it came under the Cluj Napoca Production and Design Research Section, in Oradea working collectively for forest management.

In 2001, the Oradea Resort subordinated to I.C.A.S. was re-established. – Bucharest, which from 2004 becomes the Oradea Design Station, and from 2006 – the Oradea Forestry Design and Inventory Station.
