In July, 1936 according to Stalin’s direct order the construction of a strategically important ammunition plant began. It was found within the distance of 27 km (16,9 miles) from Moscow to the south of Podolsk, not far from railway station. On December 30, by the decision of People’s Armament Commissar of the USSR a newly built plant got its number – 188. At first the plant was refered to as Novopodolsky, and in 1960 it was renamed to Klimovsk Punching Plant (KShZ). So it is December 30, 1936 that is traditionally considered the plant foundation date. Its close neighbourhood to Moscow, favourable climatic and geographic zones, highly professional staff, considerable industrial resources – all these factors serve today as a predetermination of the defense enterprise higher investment attraction. To the present day the plant is considered a local economic mainstay and socially important enterprise of the town of Klimovsk.

We are striving to meet this challenge, making the products that meet the highest standards of quality with unsurpassed fit, finish, reliability and durability. Military and Law enforcement professionals in the USSR and today from the entire world have provided assistance in developing our product specifications in order to meet the needs of today’s safeguard polices.
During all our success production history we have been testing our ammunition using thousand kinds of different firearms. Our factory collection of fire arms is one of the biggest in the ex Soviet Union. This experience has allowed KSPZ to develop the Jorge 9mm series pistols that was constructed in close conjunction with technical experts from the Russian Army and number of law enforcement agencies – world wide.
