There was celebration of JSC УNovosibirsk Cartridge PlantФ 70 anniversary on 29 December 2009.
In the course of 70 years the plant passed through the tense, but successful times, and become one of the leading cartridges plants of Russia. And today this article contains lots of congratulations and thanks received by the plant.
But first of all let the veterans speak out. Vasiliy Lazarevich Berezyuk: - I spent the whole my life with the plant, where I started working in 1939. That time I was a teenager. I and the other boys were immediately assigned to run in the heavy-caliber cartridges. During the war years I worked as a production expert and then several years later I took up an appointment of the head of a workshop. The last 17 years I held the position of a union chairman. That was good time…Since the end of the 60s the plant began to conduct social policy intentionally. They built an accommodation for workers. Houses in the Kotovskogo and Vatutina Streets were erected by efforts of the plant. The pioneer camp was started in Toguchin. During each season more than 300 children spent their vacations there. Some time after the plant cared for the family’s vacation as well – there was built a recreation facility in Kirza. Nowadays I am trying to keep in touch with the plant, but it is hard with my health. Now I am 85 indeed. As a matter of fact the plant does not forget us, the veterans.
Vladimir Mihailovich Oziablov: - Being the student of tradesmen school #1 I came to work for the plant as an electrician. It was in December of 1941. At that time the plant was evacuated from Podolsk short time ago. I remember it clearly – as soon as the echelons with equipment came to the plant, they were immediately put into production. That time was tough for workers. We were working day and night, having only short breaks. Front line needed cartridges every day. We went through it only because of the crew’s cohesion. This spring I have visited the plant, have looked at the production. Of course there were no many workshops as it were – nowadays the production takes up smaller space. And there are few people I worked with. However, I am happy to know that the plant masters new types of products.Petr Yakovlevich Dobrynin, General Director, acknowledgement.“Dear friends and associates!
