The Sugar Processing Factory in Crvenka was founded in 1911 by an English-Hungarian joint-stock company which named it Fabriksleitung der Cervenkaer Zuckerfabrik, der Anglo-Ungarischen Zuckerindustrie A.C.

The stockholders had chosen Crvenka as the place for the construction of the Factory on insistence of doctor Ladislav Lelbach, a landowner from Crvenka and MP in the Hungarian Parliament. The Factory owners made engineer Manenberg its first general manager and engineer Hamerschmit its engineering manager.

After the Second World War, the Sugar Factory "Crvenka" became a state- owned company and it was placed under receivership.
In 1950 the managing had been given to the workers who were making important decisions through their unions.

In 1991 the Factory was registered as joint-stock company (D.D.) in mixed ownership and in 1994 it was registered as D.D. in private ownership. Its "owners" are for now its employees and a number of pensioners.
