Our history

1957 - April 1962

The directives of the 20th Congress of the CPSU provided for the construction of the Kachkanar mining and processing plant. The plant is to become the main supplier of raw materials for the Nizhny Tagil Iron and Steel Works. Since by this time the deposits of suppliers supplying NTMK with raw materials were close to depletion. In addition, vanadium was present in the Kachkanar ores, which significantly improved the quality of the steel being smelted.

Simultaneously with the construction of the plant, a decision was made to build premises for the organization of a centralized repair base. The design of such a base was entrusted to the Uralgiproshakht Institute in 1959 under an agreement with the Uralgiprorud Institute, the general designer. According to the plan of the general designer, it was proposed to build a central repair shop. However, during the design process, the need for a large repair plant was justified. And on September 30, 1961, the project of the plant was approved with a total estimated cost of 17.7 million rubles. And so, in the remote Ural taiga, a giant plant was built in the extractive industry, it was built in a relatively short time from 1957. to 1963

And on April 3, 1962, a group of people (heads and specialists of the plant) appeared at the construction site of the administrative building of the main quarry (Valerianovsk village). After examining the barn, standing at a distance from the building, they decided: to place brigades here for the manufacture of metal structures. The next day, work began on bringing the barn to the production facility. The work was supervised by the chief mechanic of the plant Shubik V.D.


By the end of 1967, the move to the built premises of the repair base was basically completed. A lot of work had to be done to develop new premises, installed equipment, and produce products for the needs of the plant. All repair units gathered in one place.


In October 1970, the repair and installation shop became part of the repair base and became known as the external repairs shop. In 1971, a reorganization of the workshops was undertaken. Already by this time, the assembly shop was partly part of the repair and installation shop, partly the machine shop and practically ceased to exist. In this regard, the mechanical shop became known as the mechanical assembly shop.

Having gathered all the repair departments into one, the negative aspects of production became clearly visible: low labor productivity, large losses of working time, low quality of work. Without improving the management structure, without perfect technological processes, without improving the quality of products, further continuation of work became impossible.

At this time, the leaders and specialists of the repair base developed proposals for improving the management structure, for the optimal organization of workshops, and for the high-quality execution of work.

Most of the developed proposals were implemented, which contributed to the acquisition of the plant status by the machine-assembly shop.

In addition, the decision of the State Planning Committee of the USSR on the construction of a base for a specialized workshop for steel manganese casting, adopted back in 1962, was a great influence for obtaining the status of the plant. The capacity of the workshop was to ensure the production of 25 thousand tons of castings per year.


The construction of the workshop began in 1967, when the construction of the first stage of the future plant was nearing completion. However, the real construction of the workshop started only in 1971 due to objective reasons facing the Kachkanar plant. Namely:

  • complication of problems of repair production,
  • construction of a steel mill.

On December 28, 1971, by order No. 933 of the USSR Ministry of Ferrous Metallurgy, the repair base of the Kachkanar GOK was withdrawn from the plant into an independent enterprise with the name: the Kachkanarrudoremont plant and subordinated to the Uralruda trust.

Since 1968, A.A. Kuchinsky, who worked as the head of the repair base, was approved as the director of the Kachkanarrudoremont plant, Berger G.M. was approved as the chief engineer.

Since that time, a new stage in the improvement of repair production, improvement of production management, and the formation of a team has begun.

Departments and services of the plant are created:

  • department of the chief technologist (head Mishagin A.M.)
  • department of the chief designer (head Beloborodov L.S.)
  • department of the chief power engineer (head Otradnov V.I.)
  • department of the chief mechanic (head Pek V.A)
  • planning and economic department (head Taskaeva L.I.)
  • production and dispatching department (head Frid G.A.)
  • department of material and technical supply (head Glinskikh V.I.)
  • accounting (head Zautinskaya T.F.)
  • personnel department (head Stavrov S.A.)
  • department of labor and wages (head Shumikhin V.E.).


Shops structure


In the autumn of 1973, shortly before the start of the first stage of the steel foundry, the department of the chief metallurgist was formed. At first, the department was headed by the deputy chief metallurgist Vyalkov N.I. After the shop was put into operation, P.I. Stepankov was invited to the position of chief metallurgist.

Construction of a steel foundry (1975)


Soon another event in the life of the plant takes place - the construction of the building of the rubber section is completed, and in February 1974 the rubber section develops its area and capacity already at a permanent, designated place.


The metallurgists of the plant, together with specialists from the institutes "UralNIIChM", UPI, are working to improve the quality of the produced steel.

For the development and implementation of wear-resistant manganese steel grade 110G13FTL, i.е. additionally alloyed with vanadium and modified with titanium, in 1978 the plant was awarded a diploma of the USSR VDNKh degree, and the authors were awarded VDNKh diplomas and medals.


In 1979, the Uralruda trust was transformed into the Uralruda mining association. In this regard, the plant was renamed into the “Kachkanar Plant for the Repair of Mining Equipment” - KZRGO. This name has been introduced since July 1, 1979.


Smelting 50,000 tons of steel

The plant is being built, completed, rebuilt, modernized, but at the same time it works, produces products, provides services not only to one Kachkanar GOK, but also to many other mining enterprises of the Ministry of Ferrous Metallurgy. The demand for the plant's products is growing, which means that it needs to be made more.

The technical services of the plant play an important role in increasing production volumes, improving product quality, developing and implementing new technologies.

The specialists of the plant have developed, manufactured and implemented installations for automatic welding and surfacing under a layer of flux, introduced semi-automatic welding in a carbon dioxide environment, introduced gas cutting of metal using natural gas.

To process parts made of hard-to-machine materials (mostly parts of soil pumps - casings, impellers, disks, nozzles), a technology for electroerosive machining has been developed. The design of the installation was developed and it was manufactured in 1973. Subsequently, 2 more carousel machines were adapted for this purpose.


The machine park is constantly updated and expanded. A section of high-performance machine tools with numerical control appears.

The range of work performed is expanding. By 1980, the plant mastered repairs:

  • excavators EKG-8I, EKG-4.6;
  • dump cars 2VS-105, 5VS-60;
  • crushers of coarse, fine and medium crushing: KKD-300; KKD-1800; KKD-900; KSD-2200; KMD-2200; KMD-1750;
  • ball and rod mills 2.7 * 3.2; 3.2*4.5; 3.6*5; 3.6*5.5;
  • soil pumps 8Gr–8; 20Gy–8; 28Gr-8
  • screens 3.6; GIT-51;
  • exhauster rotors.

A lot of spare parts are produced, including unique ones:

  • handles EKG-4.6B;
  • sides and frontal walls of dump cars 2VS-105; 5VS–60.


In 1982, in collaboration with VNIIESO, plasma-mechanical treatment of cones with armor was developed and mastered. The initiators of this work were the chief technologist Mishagin A.M., the chief welder Anchaev N.A. The introduction of this technology made it possible to increase labor productivity by more than 6 times and increase the number of processed cone armor up to 70 pieces per month.


In 1982, the plant began to produce consumer goods:

  • коврики для салона автомобиля “Жигули”;
  • plumbing couplings of 2 types;
  • sledgehammers;
  • garage doors.

Subsequently, mounted implements for the MB-1 walk-behind tractor were mastered - cultivators, rollers, extension cords.


With the formation of the plant, the construction of housing and social and cultural facilities began. A total of 40,000 were built. m2 of housing, a kindergarten for 140 seats, a factory canteen for 150 seats, a hostel for 338 seats.

All the efforts of the administration, public organizations, well-coordinated and hard work of the entire team made it possible to achieve significant labor achievements by the mid-80s. Many workers of the plant were awarded various awards and incentives.

By this time, 46 workers of the plant were awarded state awards, among them 2 people Shvalev A.G. - a turner, Lykov N.K. - were awarded the Orders of the Red Banner of Labor.

Many were awarded with distinctive signs and certificates of the Ministry of Ferrous Metallurgy.

At the end of the 1980s, a new stage in the development of the plant began. By decree of the Central Committee of the CPSU, a policy of electing leaders at general meetings of working collectives begins. And at our plant Garifulin R.R. was elected director.

To his duties Garifulin R.R. started on February 21, 1989.


Дальнейшее организационное развитие завод получает после Указа Президента за № 721 от 1 июля 1992 года ” Об организационных мерах по преобразованию Государственных предприятий в акционерные общества.

On September 15, 1992, a conference of the labor collective took place, at which the results of voting on the decision taken by the plant's staff to privatize the plant according to the 2nd option were approved.

By the decision of the Sverdlovsk Regional Committee for State Property Management No. 912 dated December 30, 1992, the state enterprise "Kachkanar Plant for the Repair of Mining Equipment" was transformed into the Kachkanar Open Joint-Stock Company "Metallist" (KAOM). On the basis of the Decree of the head of administration of the city of Kachkanar No. 210 dated March 11, 1993, the state registration of the Metallist joint-stock company was carried out.

1996 - 2000

Since March 30, 1996, the enterprise has its present name "Open Joint Stock Company - Metalist" (JSC "Metallist").

Unfortunately, the general decline in the economy and production in Russia in the early to mid-90s of the 20th century also affected our enterprise. Thus, the output of manganese castings decreased from 17-18 thousand tons per year to 8-9 thousand tons. The production of repairs, the production of spare parts for metal structures, etc., has been noticeably reduced.

Nevertheless, to ensure the survival of the enterprise in a crisis situation, new production facilities and technologies are being opened:

  • a site for the production of welding electrodes was launched;
  • on the basis of a horizontal forging machine, a low-waste technology was introduced in the production of lining bolts. In addition, labor productivity in their manufacture has been significantly increased.

By the end of the 90s, it was possible not only to stop the decline in production, but also to significantly increase it. The output of steel manganese castings has been increased to 13-14 thousand tons per year. In mechanical assembly production, the growth in volumes was significantly increased due to the search for and implementation of new works.

Overhaul of EKG-5A excavators has been mastered, production of EKG-5A handles has been resumed, and plasma-mechanical treatment of KMD-KSD cone crusher armor has been increased. Economic ties are imposed with enterprises that are not originally related to the complex of the mining industry.

For the Serov Ferroalloy Plant, the production of ladles for pouring ferroalloys with a capacity of 1.75 m3 has been mastered; 2.5 m3; 5.4 m3; several types of spare parts are manufactured, including some unique ones: connecting rods for jaw crushers, etc.

The Solikamsk plant JSC “Silvinit” has mastered the repair of press-roll wolves with profiling of the product-forming surface, valuable bucket elevators are being manufactured.

The non-ferrous casting section is being further developed. Centrifugal casting of bushings from copper-based alloys has been mastered. The second machine for centrifugal casting of bushings of our own design was manufactured and installed. Mounted and put into operation induction melting furnaces with a capacity of 60 kg; 160 kg and 1000 kg. The capacity of the site allows to produce up to 200 tons of castings per year.

Starting from the middle of 2001 JSC "Metalist" began to systematically develop and implement the Quality Management System in all major business processes and in December 2002 the construction of the Quality Management System was completed.

In parallel with this activity, OJSC Metallist submitted an application for a certification audit of the Quality Management System by representatives of a highly authoritative certification body - TUV CERT (Germany). TUV CERT certificates are recognized worldwide. In the middle of March 2003 a certification audit took place at OAO Metallist. During the audit, the activity of the entire Enterprise as a whole was covered by the audit. As a result, the Quality Management System of OAO Metallist passed the audit of the auditors, thereby confirming its compliance with the International Standard ISO 9001:2000. On April 28, 2003 OJSC Metallist was issued a Certificate TUV CERT No. 1510031673 confirming that the implemented Quality Management System of OJSC Metallist complies with the International Standard ISO 9001:2000.

Currently, the Quality Management System is successfully functioning, constantly being improved in order to be convenient and efficient, as well as transparent for control. After all, annual confirmation of a valid TUV CERT Certificate is necessary, and in this case, the progress of the Quality Management System is indispensable.
