UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 26, 2016. Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s design office developed a special emblem to mark its head plant’s 80th anniversary, the company press service reports.

‘The emblem was inspired by the logos the company has used in the past. It is a symbol of generational continuity and the past years’ experience that laid the foundation for the development of a hi tech, modern production,’ the press service says.

The emblem represents a protruded internal screw with ‘80’ in the center, the company’s 1936 logo on the left and its current logo on the right.

‘The corporation naturally comprises some companies that are older than eighty, some of them as old as one hundred, but the plant in Nizhniy Tagil is more than just our head plant, it is an embodiment of the entire Russian machine-building industry,’ says the corporation’s Deputy Director-General Alexei Zharich.

According to Zharich, the company will keep celebrating the special date in Nizhniy Tagil throughout the year with Bulat Okudzhava Theater Days (which will include a play by Alexander Gelman), a big open-air show with fireworks in the summer, and a solemn ceremony in the early fall.
