Prenco Progress & Engineering Corporation Ltd. was established in 1939 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada producing aircraft parts including gauges, hoses and fittings. Mr. J.K. Chmel immigrated to Canada to escape the impending war in Europe, and as a leading Czechoslovakian industrialist, he brought his expertise to North America to assist in the war effort. He began operating out of an old machine shop in downtown Toronto, building PRENCO into one of Canada’s first aircraft parts manufacturers.
