Like Stalowa Wola, Nowa Dęba is a town which owes its existence to the Central Industrial Region. In the late 1930s, the government of the Second Polish Republic decided to build here the Ammunition Factory Nr. 3, located in a forest village of Dęba. The first manager of the plant was Jan Szypowski, who had previously been deputy manager of Ammunition Factory Nr. 2 in Skarżysko-Kamienna, and the money to build the factory in Dęba came from a French military loan. Polish government chose this location because of the already-existing Army’s training area, where ammunition was tested. In 1938, the construction of a workers’ settlement began, with a school, hospital, cafeteria, houses, swimming pool and blocks of flats.
During World War II the factory and the training area in Dęba were used by the Germans. In 1944 the settlement was captured by the Red Army, and in the People's Republic of Poland, the Ammunition Factory Nr. 3 was renamed into Metal Plant DEZAMET, which apart from military products also manufactured engines and clothes irons. Dęba was granted town rights on December 31, 1961, and on the same day, its name was changed to Nowa Dęba, or New Dęba.
