The history of the oldest steel mill in Siberia began with the foundry of merchant Andrey Grigoryevich Zakolyapin, a native of the Kasli parish. In 1899, it was bought by Nikolai Dmitrievich Masharov, who is considered the founder of the plant. On August 11 1901, he established the partnership "Masharov and K".
A brick foundry building, a locksmith and mechanical workshop, a nail department, warehouses, and later an enameling workshop are being built. The plant produces artistic, tableware and furnace casting, nails.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the "Masharov and K" partnership became the largest industrial enterprise in Tyumen. Before the First World War, an engine room with a dynamo was put into operation, a two-story machine shop was built.
In Soviet times, the plant was nationalized. In 1929, the first batch of trellis machines was produced. Since then, the plant has constantly specialized in their production. The only exception was the period of the Great Patriotic War, when exclusively military products were produced.
In December 1944, Plant No. 762 received a task of special importance. It had to manufacture and supply two jointing machines. As it turned out later, the machines were intended for Laboratory No. 2, headed by academician I. A. Kurchatov. Later, this laboratory turned into the Institute of Atomic Energy of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
In 2007, production was moved to the village of Antipino, the buildings were demolished, and a residential quarter is planned to be built in their place.
