An exhibition dedicated to the 160th anniversary of the Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod, one of the largest and the oldest industrial enterprises in Saint Petersburg and a member of PJSC Power Machines, was opened in Pulkovo Airport on November 24, 2017.
The exhibition features 45 historical and modern photographs, which chronicle the emergence and development of one of the first Russian machine-building plants, demonstrating ties of the Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod with the history of Saint Petersburg and Russian Industry.
"It is hard to overestimate the significance of the Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod in the history of power engineering and machine building," stated Yuri Petrenya, General Director of PJSC Power Machines. "It is important that the photo project tracing the development of the plant in the context of the history of Russian engineering, Saint Petersburg and Russia, becomes a part of the cultural and educational work carried out by Pulkovo and allows Saint Petersburgers to learn many remarkable facts about the legendary LMZ.
"We are delighted to welcome this unique educational and historical project to Pulkovo Airport. Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod is slightly more than twice as old as Pulkovo Airport: in 2017, when the LMZ celebrated its 160th anniversary, Saint Petersburg’s air terminal turned 85. Both enterprises are intrinsically connected with the history of our city, and the development of its industrial and human potential. Continuing these traditions, today both PJSC Power Machines and the North Capital Gateway LLC retain their status as anchor companies investing into the economy of the city on the Neva," added Denis Pavshinsky, GR/EA Director of North Capital Gateway LLC, Pulkovo Airport’s management company.
The exhibition is located in the domestic flights hall on the second floor of the airport building; it will run until December 21, 2017.
