Vereteno Spinning Factory

Categories / Economy/Industry

VERETENO (223-225 Obvodny Canal Embankment), open joint-stock company, one of the oldest enterprises of spinning production. It was founded as Kalininskaya (later Russian) cotton-spinning manufactory in 1835. It ran on imported (American) cotton, was nationalised in 1918, and in 1922 was renamed Vereteno. The enterprise stood idle until 1925, and then renewed spinning output using locally-produced (Uzbek) cotton. The production was stopped in 1941-45. The factory continued cotton-spinning production for knitted and small-ware goods in the post-war years. Voluminous yarn production was mastered there for the first time in the country in 1961. The factory was reincorporated as a joint-stock company in 1992, and lost most of its raw material stock because export relations were deteriorated; the reduction of textile production resulted in falling demand for spinning products, however, the company avoided bankruptcy and now produces mainly voluminous yarn for knitwear manufacturing. The factory building is a monument of industrial architecture (1837, architect N.Y. Anisimov, engineer A.Y. Wilson, rebuilt in 1857, architect R.R. Genrichsen, 1858, engineer N.P. Grebenka, 1883, architect L.F. Sperer and 1894-98, architect K.K. Zigler von Schafgausen).
