From "Papyrus" to Goznak (State Symbol)

UE "Papermill" of Goznak is a key player in ensuring the national security of Republic of Belarus. Its very name stands for the important and demanding products the company makes. This is basically all types of strict accountability forms, securities with a various degree of protection: starting from bank documents and insurance policies to lottery tickets and excise stamps for marking beer, water and other products.

More than a century in the market.

The company history began as early as in 1902 with the production of yellow wrapping paper. At that time, in the early twentieth century O.H. Cherny, a merchant from Minsk, thought it was just silly to sell just round timber. But with more advanced processing one can have higher profits! Local resources: Belarussian woods were used for making wood pulp and, consequently, paper. Thus, the city of Borisov became home to the paper mill of "Papyrus".

In 1992 the Council of Ministers of Republic of Belarus ruled to split the paper and wood-chemical group of companies in Borisov in order to set up the national facility for making protected paper and securities. As the result, Papermill of Goznak was separated from the group and put under the authority of the Committee of State Symbols with the Council of Ministers of Belarus.

The Papermill deserves praise for being capable to meet in full the country’s needs for bond paper (except for paper for banknotes, passports and some other highly complex forms of strict accountability).

Aided financially by the state and advised by scientists of the National Academy of Sciences and other research institutions the highly-qualified company specialists have developed their own technology of making bond paper and have launched the local printing production.

Today UE “Paper Mill “ of Goznak is a - a diversified company which boasts the most advanced equipment and the latest technology. Its production volume is increasing annually by 15-20%. For example, only one paper machine manufactures 800 tons of various types of paper per month.
