Šipad was founded in 1892 by Otto Steinbass, an industrialist and businessman from Brandenburg in Germany. It began with humble origins in forestry, when its founder recognised the quality of timber in the Bosnian Marches, the Bos. Krajina territory.
During 1927 and 1937, Šipad supplied more than 150,000 m3 of sawmill products and became a highly appreciated trade brand in Europe and other parts of the world. In 1948, Šipad consolidated its forest plantation and production trade of wood production and wood converting plans, and research and development works.
By the late 1970s Šipad had become a conglomerate and household name throughout Former Yugloslavia. It had a strong retailing network of department stores, show rooms and warehouses in the region totalling 370 properties (200 of which it owned directly). In its 34 factories and addition assembling units, Šipad assembled USD 200 million of furniture and exported around 1,200,000 m3 of sawn timbers per year.
In 1980 it expanded established its design, engineering, construction and furnishing business for residential, commercial and public buildings in both the domestic and foreign markets. Šipad directly employed around 55,000 people in the country of Yugoslavia, as it was then known.
