Gazstroydetal’s date of foundation is considered to be November 6, 1940. The first well-free gasifier of Podzemgas underground station in Moscow region was put in operation at that day thus giving the very first name to our plant at its origins. Initially Gazstroydetal was founded to become a gas lifting site obtaining gas from underground combustion of lignite charcoal from Novo-Basovskoe and Gosteevskoe coal deposits. Back in a time it used to be a unique and cutting edge gas lifting technology, so Podzemgas has been founded precisely for science, research and engineering experiment, to witness underground coal gasification in Tula city. The plant grew strong and has managed to provide gas for factories and companies of Tula and region for over 20 years.
In 1972, when coal deposits ran out, available solid infrastructure base allowed founding a machine-building facility producing oil and gas lifting, storing, transportation and processing equipment. This is where machinery phase of plant’s life began: pressure vessel and apparatus making shops, gas distribution and etc. various skid-making shops welding and assembly shop and forging and press shop followed each other. We decided to have forge, press and welding equipment in house to enable making all kinds of fittings for oil and gas mains and lines. From that time on, Podzemgas station changed its name to become Tula Plant of Non-standardized Equipment Tulamashgaz. Our facility became first USSR’s manufacturer of forged and welded pipeline fittings in time - that was the boom in gas sector, with major demand due to new construction of extensive gas networks and mains.
The company name has been Gazstroydetal since 1992.
In the mid-2000s Gazstroydetal proceeded to retrofit its manufacturing equipment and capacities. We have overhauled shop areas and other buildings within our territory renewed and expanded the equipment fleet. This overhaul gave an extra boost to the production capacity of process lines and enhanced the extension of product portfolio. During 2009-2014, the range of pipe fittings we produce have basically grown twice the size: from 136 to 260 schedules.
Commissioning of the new packaging shop in November 2015 became another step in development of Gazstroydetal thus enabling the manufacture of packaged equipment equipped with cutting edge domestic and foreign components.
