History of IZ-KARTEX

The history of IZ-KARTEX goes hand-in-hand with the history of our sister company, Izhora Plant, which was established in 1722 by Peter the Great to supply the Russian Navy.

In 1957, Izhora Plant started to produce mining shovels. Crawler-mounted shovels (EKG) were designed and produced in order to maintain the developing mining industry of the state. The production of shovels was running in full swing: 66 items were manufactured as early as 1966; 94 items in 1975; 133 items in 1979 and 160 items in1986.

In 1991, IZ-KARTEX was established as a separate company on the basis of Izhora Plant excavator production facilities. IZ-KARTEX was focused on manufacturing of mining equipment such as excavators and rotary drilling rigs for opencast mining operations.

In 1998, IZ-KARTEX was incorporated by OMZ Group.
