Moscow Printing Plant of Goznak – one of the biggest Operating division of GOZNAK Association

In 1944 within Moscow Printing Plant the Industrial school was established; later on it was transformed into Goznak Specialized Technical School. A lot of experts graduated from this school, number of them are still work at Gosznak.

Specialized Technical School has trained professionals not only for Moscow but for Krasnokamensk and Perm Printing Plants. In sever post-war 1946 the Plant organized Young Pioneer Camp in Moscow Oblast which have been functioning more than 50 years already. Keeping of skilled workers, providing the comfortable conditions for personnel was always high priority for the Plant. It has own recreation center, mess-room, medical unit, rest house and child day-care centers that made available to keep stable and high-quality staff.


 

By keeping of such atmosphere the guarantee of reliability within the staff was pursued with respect to its fitness to work and manufacture privacy assurance. Personnel of the Plant through its corporate history passed their wide experience to members of their families.

It is hard to enlist names of all families that have worked and continue to work at Gosznak, among them you can find Vasilevs, Galkins, Chekmarevs, Andreevs.

Rapid development of money printing technologies all over the world, new methods of banknote counterfeit protection demanded of Goznak to take measures regarding upgrading of the equipment. Beginning from 1970s new offset and scratch-off printing equipment has being installed. Installation of new equipment required total change in technological process of banknote manufacture.

Following manufacturing areas have been liquidated: type casting section, stereotype printing area at plate room. Scratch-off printing technology has suffered fundamental change. Soaking of each blank sheet before printing, post-print drying in special ovens and pressing has reached back as labor-intensive and hard manufacturing processes.

Applying of new equipment brought Goznak in one line with foreign banknote manufacturers producing banknotes both for own country and to the order of other countries. It is necessary to point out that in 80-90s were years of rapid development and improvement of Goznak production system.

Implementation of new technology drastically curtailed preparation process, started up production of new products, several times raised manufacturing productivity during printing of main products, significantly minimized number of employees involved in manufacture.

That time can be characterized as the period of hard work concerning assimilation of new equipment and technology. N. Saltykov, one of high-qualified scratch-off printing experts, trained a big group of press-workers to operate new press machines. Great attention in the early stages was attracted by A.V. Neklyudov, veteran production supervisor, and his deputy - Larin to assimilation of new technologies. K.N. Andreev, former press worker and production supervisor nowadays, deserves the high credit for implementation of new Orlov type of printing at newly designed press machines. Goznak Moscow Printing Plant takes particular position in history of banknote manufacturing in Russia. After printing of banknotes had been closed in Petrograd, all-Russian banknote manufacturing was restored based on Moscow Plant facilities. During first months and years after October Revolution banknotes had been partially produced in Penza and Perm. In 1919 the last main subdivisions of the Department of State Currency Production, printing and form-and-art departments, were evacuated from Petrograd to Moscow.

On July 6, 1919 People’s Commissariat of Finance of the RSFSR ratified Regulation on Administration of State Paper Printing Plants.

The Administration was established in Moscow and gathered Moscow, Petrograd and Penza State Paper Printing Plants.

On December 8, 1920 the resolution of Council of Labour and Defense was accepted about following:

“All State Paper Printing Plants (First and Second) Moscow Plants, Moscow machine workshops of Goznak, Petrograd, Penza, Perm Plants and Administration of Goznak Plants shall be referred to the group of organization of high importance and recognized as State military company…”

This resolution in many ways contributed to preparation of monetary reform. The first stage of the reform was marked by Goznak issuing of state banknotes of year 1922 design. At that time the Government took a decision to concentrate the banknote manufacture in two places: in Moscow where all printing facilities were transferred to and in Petrograd where Paper Mill was left. In 1924 monetary reform was completed after stabilization of Soviet ruble exchange rate.

Banknote manufacture is complex and labor-consuming technological process that involves different branches of science and engineering. Artists and plate-makers, photographs and retouch artists, stereotypists and galvanize engineers, keyboard operators and manufacturers of foliating machines, ink grinder and washwomen, laboratory personnel who controls all stages of technological process – this is only part of professionals participating in preparation of a product before, in the shape of typographic plate, it will get into press machine. Moscow Printing Plant of Goznak performed broad scope of works with respect to preparation and provision of necessary quantity of products for realization of the reform in 1937-1938. During that period of time new manufacturing building was built within the Plant area as addition to existing buildings of former Brokar Plant that made available to construct a lot of new manufacturing areas. At that time Plant was improving and developing its manufacture. By 1941 it has become the largest printery in the country.

War time put personnel of the Plant on trial. Regardless to denial of determent of call-up a lot of Goznak employees went up the line as volunteers. Rest of personnel was evacuated to Krasnokamsk and Tashkent.

In 1942 manufacturing at the Plant was restored again. One of significant event of war and post-war periods was preparation of new 1947 design banknotes issuing. Main work regarding producing of sample originals was carried out at Moscow Printing Plant. New banknotes were manufactured at Krasnokamsk and Moscow Printing Plants.

After the war the Plant was partly reconstructed. Through corporate history of the Plant general attention have been attracting to training and education of staff. Individual training system was widely applied. Cheblokov, Saltykov, Pomansky and others were they who trained a good many of press operators, platemakers and artists.
