Krasny Oktyabr factory[edit]

The company's factory was established on April 30, 1897. After the Bolshevik Revolution the factory became known as Krasny Oktyabr, Red October. The factory was completely destroyed in the battle of Stalingrad, but was restored shortly after. During the Soviet time it was awarded the Order of Lenin and the Order of the Red Banner of Labour.
