History of company


Iron ore location

Peasants Sergei Babin and Kuzma Suleyev announced to the mining chief, General Wilhelm de Genin, the location of iron ore on the Sysert River


Place for the construction of the plant

On the bank of the River Sysert, a place was chosen for the construction of a state-owned railroad plant and its construction began.


The first buildings of Sysertsky state plant

The plant introduced a new technique, which allowed to improve the quality of iron. In the same year, platinum was built and the first blast furnace at Besenkova Mountain (Karaulnaya).


First iron

In August 1733, at the new Sysertsky plant, the first flashed iron was produced. But the cast iron from local ores turned out to be of poor quality, and the first sysertsky metal could not stand it. Immediately, Gennin intervened and ordered the local iron to be mixed with Kamensky so that the “iron” was better and stood on trial. During the first year, more than 25 thousand pounds of iron were shackled.


Factories transferred to the possession of A.F. Turchaninova

Sysertsky, Polevskoy and Seversky state-owned plants by the decree of the Senate were transferred into the possession of A.F. Turchaninova.


Increased metal quality

By 1770 more than 80 thousand pounds of iron and more than 25 thousand pounds of copper were smelted at the plant. Various products from Sysertsky metal were in great demand in the market. Turchaninov opened trade in Yekaterinburg, Perm, Nizhny Novgorod, and later in St. Petersburg and Tagonrog. Part of the metal went abroad.


Mastered polishing cores and grapeshot

For the first time in Russia, the Sysertsky plant mastered the polishing of cores and grapeshot, installed machines for their processing.


Copper smelting

The plant employed more than 59 artisans, 924 government employees. 27 thousand copper smelted.


Gold rush of Sysertsky plant

In 1823, gold was found at the dacha of the Sysertsky plants. In 1824, the gold rush began. Workers were removed from the domain, blast furnaces, and sent to extract gold.


The transfer of plant power to the possession of Solomirsky P.D.

Solomirsky got quite a sensible manager F. A. Khvoshchinsky. He led the forestry of the Sysert dacha into an exemplary order, for the first time in the Urals began to use peat for puddling, he introduced the Kontau's rocky forges, which improved the dressing of iron.


Centenary of the Plant

A century later, since the plant was commissioned, its director was P.D. Solomirsky - one of the grandsons of A.F. Turchaninov. When it was carried out further reconstruction of the plant: installed a new rolling mill, commissioned welding furnaces, built mechanical workshops. In the middle of the 19th century, the Sysertsky Gornozavodsky District is divided into metallurgical and mechanical production. The first is concentrated in Polevskoy - today the Seversky Pipe Plant, the second in Sysert. In 1936, the mechanical workshops were transferred to the category of engineering.


Sysertsky plant in the 40s of the XIX century

In 1843, puddling-welding furnaces appeared at Sysertsky plant. In 1847, a new building for two blast furnaces was built. Two versts from the plant on the River Sysert near the dam, the construction of the stone building of the mechanical workshops (today the former building of the Central laboratory) is completed. In 1849, the Verkh-Sysertsky reworking plant was built, where strip iron was produced from Sysertsky cast iron.


The second half of the XIX century

In 1870, the plant’s products were awarded a silver medal at the All-Russian Industrial Exhibition. In 1887, the plant’s products were awarded a gold medal at the industrial art exhibition in Yekaterinburg. In 1894 a mechanical plant was built (now there is an instrumental workshop). In 1895 the track was laid in Sysert.


Sysert Mine District

In 1905 there was a strike of workers of the whole plant. In 1912, the plant became the property of the joint-stock company Sysertsky mining district, whose shares belonged to the London joint-stock company. They sharply increased the production of copper, but did not increase the productivity of the plant.


The plant was nationalized

By decision of the Council of People's Commissars Sysertsky mining district and the plant was nationalized.


20s of the XXth century

In early 1921, the plant began to fulfill the state plan. Metal output has been increased by more than 100%. Worked blast furnaces, martens, rolling mill. In 1925, the plant was transferred to the English joint-stock company Lena Goldfields Limited, but soon the plant returned to the state again.


1932 was a turning point for the plant

In 1931, the plant was transferred to the trust "Uralles", then "Traktordetal". In 1932, after the change of its profile, the plant became a machine-building, the building of the foundry was built (today the building of the electrical department ". In the old mechanical workshops installed new equipment - turning and the best at that time.


During the War

The plant gives combat products to the front. In 1942, the Postavlenie State Defense Committee on the organization of a hydroturbine plant in Sysert. The plant is named "Ural Plant of Hydraulic Machines" (UZGM). In 1943, the first hydraulic turbine was produced for the Alapaevsk metallurgical plant. Completed construction and entered into operation a new railway line to Sysert. In 1945, a hydraulic turbine was manufactured to restore the NIVA-II HPP with a capacity of 15 MW. The first stage of the assembly shop was put into operation (stage II - in 1952 and stage III in 1958).



In 1946, the construction of the foundry was completed. The first stage of the hydro turbine workshop was built. The plant refused to cooperate on iron casting, from machining large-sized parts, boiler and welding.


Start of pump construction

In 1947, a new direction appeared - pump engineering. The first sysert pumps were small. Horizontal centrifugal types of VAT and D. In 1948, pumps of type D received the Shchekinskaya, Dubrovskaya and Sumgait heat and power plants. In 1949, the centrifugal pumps, and then axial pump.
