The celebration dedicated to the 75th anniversary of our Murom Apparatus Producing Plant, awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labor, took place on November 2 in the conference hall of the Company. This event became a great day to celebrate for all generations of staff, all those who built the reputation of the plant through years of selfless service, strengthening the defense capacity of our great country, keeping the time-honored work traditions, overcoming the difficulties and firmly believing in the bright future of their enterprise.
The celebration was off to a good start with a film about the past, the present and the future of the enterprise, created by Muromsky Meridian TV Company. The film showed documentary chronicle of MAPP’s early years, with inserts of interviews of various Plant workers about the people and events of different years. Top managers and heads of production subdivisions of the company talked in their interviews about the achievements and plans of the team celebrating the 75th anniversary.
The show was interspaced with music signals of short news reels “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow,” dedicated to the anniversary. The show was hosted by two young plant employees: S. Belyaeva and V. Kovalenko.
Yesterday refers to a factory with just two — pyrotechnic and capsule — shops. Yesterday reminds us of heroic efforts of managers, engineers, technical specialists and workers who set up military production at the time of war within a very short period of time. After the war, the same people did everything they could to allow the plant to become the leader of Russia’s defense industry.
Today refers to advanced technical equipment, new technologies, stability and skilled personnel.
Tomorrow refers to the work being done for the welfare of Russia. Undoubtedly, in 10, 20 or 50 years the team of Murom Apparatus Producing Plant will be celebrating the plant’s anniversaries.
