Bratislavská priemyselná banka, Bratislava

Bratislavská priemyselná banka (Bratislava Industrial Bank), joint stock company, was established in 1867. It also operated under the names Pressburger Gewerbebank AG and Pozsonyi iparbank, r. t., in German and Hungarian, respectively. The share capital originally amounted to 240,000 guldens and was gradually increased to stand at 400,000 Austro-Hungarian crowns (K) in 1909, K 1 million in 1911 and K 1.5 million in 1918. In 1920, the share capital was increased to 4 million Czechoslovak crowns (Kč) and to Kč 20 million in 1921.

Among long-standing members of its management were Heinrich Prüger, Ludwig Kovács, Karl Ludwig, Michael Dax, Rudolf Dohnál, Karl Feitzelmayer, Samuel Frühwirth, Gustav Tichy and others. In 1925, the bank established a branch in Malacky by taking over a local financial institution called Prvá malacká banka. In 1930 the activities of the bank came to an end by a merger with Bratislavská prvá sporivá banka, which thus also acquired its pawn shop.

The preserved documents were deposited in the corporate archives of Štátna banka československá, Regional Institute for Slovakia in Bratislava, in a former monastery at Marianka. In 1975 - 1977, the archive records were moved to a new utility building of the archives at 27 Krajná Street in Bratislava and later, in 2003, they were transferred to the Archives of Národná banka Slovenska at 8 Cukrová Street in Bratislava.

The first inventory to this fonds was compiled in Štátna banka československá and subsequently revised and completed in the Archives of Národná banka Slovenska.
