The building of the factory started in 1952, and in the same year the first buses PAZ-651 (based on GAZ-51) were produced. The government had a plan to produce 10,000 buses per year. In 1960, the production of new model PAZ-652 started. It was replaced by PAZ-672 in early 1968, and this bus had a large family of various modifications. 1989 saw a start of production of the new modernised model PAZ-3205.
The small PAZ buses have long been used by Russian "fixed-route taxi" (marshrutka) operators.
