Academician Peter L. Kapitsa, Nobel Prize Winner, the eminent physicist of the 20th century, the founder and developer of cryogenics and branch of cryogenic engineering in our country, played a decisive role in developing cryogenic engineering industry and creating our company. When the first leader of Glavkislorod, P.L. Kapitsa took an active part in realization of the USSR Government decree adopted in May of 1945, in accordance with which the scientific center VNIIKIMASH and Design Institute Giprokislorod were created and the construction of the Machine-Building Plant in Balashikha was started - the firstlings of cryogenic engineering industry of our country.
The completion of construction and putting the plant productive capacities into operation in 1949, that is rightly considered to be the foundation year of our company, then called NPO "Cryogenmash" incorporating the Machine-Building Plant and VNIICryogenmash into a scientific and industrial complex, at present – Public Joint Stock Company of Cryogenic Engineering (PJSC "Cryogenmash").
During 65 years of its history, CRYOGENMASH took part in a lot of large-scale programs and projects. The introduction of oxygen steel-making converter method and development of industrial chemistry, creation of large systems for filling rockets with cryogenic products at launch complexes of our country and abroad, mastery of superconductivity - all this motivated the powerful and great advance in development of cryogenic engineering in the second half of the 20th century, and became stage landmarks in the history of our company on the path of scientific-and-technological progress.
