CENZIN derives from SEPEWE, a company founded in 1926, which exported military equipment made by Polish manufacturers to more than 40 countries worldwide before the start of the Second World War. It also originates from Central Engineering Board, located between 1950 and 1989 in the structures of the Ministry of Foreign Trade. The latter was later renamed to the Ministry for Foreign Economic Cooperation and engaged in international trade of military equipment. Consequently, CENZIN is recognized as the oldest Polish arms and trading company, operating on the international market for more than 90 years.
In its current legal form CENZIN has been in existence since May 15th, 1990. CENZIN belonged to the defense sector capital groups (Bumar and PHO). Since 2015 it has been a part of the Polish Armaments Group SA, a holding company consisting of 64 Polish defense companies.
