History of Pervouralsk began in 1730, when Vasily Demidov began the building of the iron-making factory. It produced pipes for more than 200 years. On December 1, 1732, the factory started operating; this date is now considered the official date of the city's foundation.[citation needed] The village around the factory was named Vasilyevsko-Shaytansky.[citation needed] In 1920, the village was renamed Pervouralsk. After building Pervouralsky Novotrubny Works in 1933, the village was granted town status.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of the administrative divisions, it is, together with twenty-nine rural localities, incorporated as the City of Pervouralsk'[1]—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[11] As a municipal division, the City of Pervouralsk is incorporated as Pervouralsk Urban Okrug.[5][1]

Coat of arms[edit]

The coat of arms of the city was adopted in 2002. The sable is taken from a label of Demidov's steel factory. The ring actually represents a section of a pipe. Pipes are basic production of Pervouralsk.


Pervouralsk is the second fastest-developing city in Sverdlovsk Oblast after Yekaterinburg (2005 Ural Information Bureau[permanent dead link]). The annual growth rate of industrial output remains steadily at 25-30%; the retail turnover increases 20% a year (2005 Ural Information Bureau[permanent dead link]). This positively affects the unemployment rate, which stays at low 1.16% (2005 Ural Information Bureau[permanent dead link]), and leads to the number of vacancies to exceed the number of unemployed people.

Average monthly salary is about $300, which is a little bit lower than the average in the region, which is $350 (Local Information Centre).

The city attracts attention of large businesses—only within last years there happens merges and acquisitions with Pervourask enterprises, such as Wimm-Bill-Dann, a well known dairy company, acquiring a dairy plant in Pervouralsk and Chelyabinsk Pipe Group, the second largest in the country, acquiring Pervouralsk Novotrubny Works.
