ON THE COMPANY
JSC “Kimry Gorky factory of individual protection means” founded in 1925, is currently the leading specialized enterprise for the production of personal respiratory protective equipment (PPE) - anti-aerosol and gas-dust respirators - including the widely known respirator ShB-1 “Lepestok”, and the largest producer of personal protective equipment for the respiratory system and skin for work with radioactive and aggressive substances, as well as analytical AFA filters for controlling air-dispersed impurities. Personal protective equipment for the skin and respiratory systemmade of special materials – hose-type devices, special clothing and footwear - designed for work with especially dangerous substances, including radioactive ones, provide protection against the effects of harmful factors accompanying the use of radioactive substances, in particular - chemically aggressive substances: acids, alkalis, oxidants, etc. Since radioactively contaminated personal protective equipment can be a secondary source of contamination, the material and design of these protective meansallows for their multiple effective cleaning.
We are proud that JSC “Kimry Gorky factory of individual protection means” in the production of personal protective equipment is at the root of the creation and establishment of the Soviet nuclear industry, since it was in our enterprise in the mid 50s of the last century that the production of the famous light high-performance respirators ShB-1 “Lepestok”, protective pneumatic suits made of PVC materials for needs of Minsredmash USSR.
Over the years, the factory has produced more than 3 billion respirators ShB-1 “Lepestok” - more than 40% of their total production in the country.
The factory basesits production of personal protective means, on the use of modern technologies and the latest achievements in the field of protective materials. In 2010, the JSC “Kimry Gorky factory of individual protection means”purchased modern imported automated equipment for the manufacture of principally new models of “SPIRO”seriesrespirators. The technology of production of these respirators is used in Russia for the first time.

JSC “Kimry Gorky factory of individual protection means”for more than 60 years, specializes in the production of personal protective equipment for the respiratory system and skin. We produce well-known respirators “Lepestok”, which are still unsurpassed in terms of their protective properties in the class of light filtering half masks.
The liquidators of the Chernobyl accident also entrusted their livesto the legendary invention. If you recall the hot summer of 1986, watch movies, TV shows, newspapers, magazines of that time of almost all the countries of the world, in the foreground you can always see the collapse of the 4th block, the construction of the “Sarcophagus” and people struggling with the unprecedented catastrophe in “Lepestok” respirators. The first were symbols of danger, the second - protection from it. After the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the factory worked in three shifts, providing the liquidators of the disaster with respirators and protective clothing. In June 1986, about 300 thousand respirators “Lepestok” were delivered to Chernobyl. The head of the chemical troops of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR Colonel-General V.Pikalov personally thanked its creators for the products that saved the lives of many thousands of soldiers.
A number of foreign companies had doubts about the protective properties of the respirator “Lepestok” and they initiated an independent evaluation of the filter respirator “Lepestok-200”. Studies conducted by the Lovelace Institute of Respiratory Research and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory of the USA (US Nuclear Research Center) in 2001, on the instructions of the US Department of Energy, confirmed the high protective properties of the ShB-1 respirator “Lepestok-200” and, as a result, US inspectors use respirators ShB-1 “Lepestok-200” when visiting nuclear facilities in Russia.
The use of respirators “Lepestok” produced by JSC “Kimry Gorky factory of individual protection means” in all branches of industry and agriculture for many years proved their highest effectiveness in protecting the health of workers in hazardous working conditions.
