In summer of 1934 the first batch of 50 engines from American kits was produced. In 1935 all basic parts of the engine called Ì-25 were produced in Perm. Instead of expected 500 engines the company produced extra 100 engines and got honorable name of Stalin therefor. In 1936 over 1700 engines were produced. That year engine-building company ¹ 19 was awarded with the Order of Lenin and was the first among the factories of Ural to get it!

One more company milestone is the 1000th industrial gas-turbine unit produced in September 2018. Since early 90s the company has been engaged in production of GTUs rated at 2,5 - 25 MW which are operated being included into compressor stations and gas-turbine power plants of Gazprom and fuel and energy complex companies and industrial sector as well. The demand for industrial gas-turbine engines has increased in 2019 (by 15 % compared to 2018). The quantity increase refers to building of new compressor stations for gas pipeline Power of Siberia (Gazprom) which applies GTUs rated at 16 MW based on PS-90 engine.
