The Day of Family, Love and Loyalty07.07.2017
Opening the awarding ceremony, Arkady Trachuk, General Director of Goznak noted that there was a great idea at the heart of the holiday – “The family is the basis of a human life and a society existence, it is the basis preventing each of us from feeling lonely on this earth. It is a great feeling of being a part of the life of our spouse, children, grandchildren, parents… Of course, it is especially pleasant to honor the families of Goznak’s employees who have given many years to our company and, most significantly, created excellent families, thanks to them our Goznak thrives and prospers…”.
A commemorative medal approved by the Fund of Cultural Initiatives and a Certificate of Merit are given to families who have lived for 25 years and more together, are recognized in their teams, their cities and towns as an honorary family which can be taken as an example and should be respected.
Goznak has taken an active part in preparing and holding the holiday during all these years. The awards of the Fund of Social and Cultural Initiatives are minted at the Moscow Mint of Goznak. A few thousand medals of the sort are minted every year. We started with 2000; this year, 8000 were minted already.
On July 7, at the instruction of the Organizational Committee of the Day of Family, Love and Loyalty, Arkady Trachuk awarded six families of Goznak – employees of the Moscow branches of the company.

For Goznak, the family is a concept applied to the whole team of the company. Very many families were started at Goznak; they worked together for many years here. Many people’s parents used to work here, their children do now. There are a lot of such dynasties at Goznak. The enterprise was organized this way since the very beginning in 1818. Right within the territory of the present Saint Petersburg Paper Mill, where Goznak was founded, there was a town. People lived here, there was a large club and a church, a kindergarten, a technical school and a library. Naturally, families were started here from the very beginning; and it is thanks to them that Goznak thrives and prospers. It is fair to say that the family is one of the foundations of our successful work.
