Industrial timber fabrication in Berani dates back to the year 1953 when a rather small saw-mill was erected under the plateau of Berani Airport.
In the period 1958 – 1962, the saw-mill was moved to the present-day location in the industrial area of Rudeš, 2 km far from the center of the town, doing business as a corporate of the Timber-Industrial Combine “Lim-Berane”.
Since 1974 it has been operating under the name RO ŠIP „Polimlje“ -Berane incorporating the following sections
• OOUR Šper ploču (Plywood Section)
• OOUR Pilana (Saw-mill Section)
• OOUR Promet (Trade Section)
• OOUR Šumarstvo (Forestry sections)
• Common Services for above sections
This legal status of RO ŠIP „Polimlje“ –Berane remains until December 1989, the year of the transformation, so that the above sections have been doing business as independent socially-owned enterprise since 1st January 1990.
As to the Plywood factory doing business within „Polimlje Holding“ and DT (socially-owned enterprise) „Omorika-komerc“-Berane, at the end of December 1994 „Polimlje Holding“ joins „Omorika-komerc“-Berane which started as a Joint Stock (AD) „Omorika-komerc“-Berane in 1995.
AD „Omorika-komerc“ –Berane ran the business under said name until 9 June 2003 when the company was restructured. and AD forestry enterprise „Berane“, which separated from Forests of Plevlja, administration of Berane, joined together.
After the restructure all joint companies founded a new joint-stock enterprise under the name AD „Berane“, a forestry- and industrial enterprise registered with CRPS-Podgorica (Central Register of Entrepreneurs) and the founders were deleted from the register.
Newly-founded AD ŠIP „BERANE“-Berane (joint-stock forestry and industrial enterprise) was sold at the tender offer in 2005 through the bankrupcy in accordance with the plan for privatization of timber-processing industrial enterprises. It was sold to the „Boj-commerce“ Ltd-Andrijevica, which, after the sale, founded the „Polimlje“ Forestry-Industrial Combine (ŠIK) -Berane, one-member limited company registered on 26th December 2005 with CRPS Podgorica, still running the business under the same name without changing the ctivity the previus enterprises had been doing.
