Formally the Perm Printing Factory was put into operation by the order of the Minister of Finance of the USSR dated July 14, 1964. However, the factory traces its history to 1941. In that year, 204 units of equipment had been sent from the Moscow Printing Factory to Krasnokamsk. 646 people had been evacuated to Krasnokamsk, and many of them remained in the Perm Region after the war. They changed their place of living again in the 1960s together with the equipment and formed the core of the team of a new printing factory, already in Perm.
During the wartime, the enterprise provided the state not only with banknotes but also with other printed products (bread cards, bonds, postcards etc.). At the end of the war, they also printed currency units for Bulgaria, Poland, Romania and Hungary in Krasnokamsk.
The production was not interrupted during the relocation of the factory from Krasnokamsk to Perm. The enterprise also participated in executing the order of banknotes production for the currency reform of 1961.
Today the Perm Printing Factory continues to make a large contribution into the work of Goznak by executing state, international and commercial orders.
