It was founded in 1918 and specializes in the manufacture of footwear with injection soles.
The company produces over 2 million pairs of footwear per year. Customers of the factory are industrial plants in the metallurgical, construction, and petrochemical industries.
Since 2000 the factory has been a member of Vostok-Service Group of Companies. In 2007 the company completed a programme of large-scale retooling with new modern DESMA equipment for production of injection molding shoes with double-layer polyurethane soles. This significantly expanded the range of models and enabled it to offer its customers new high-quality shoes, light and comfortable, and designed for use not only at work but also in everyday life.
The number of employees is 700, with an average age of 28-30 years. Opening of new shops and an increase in production volumes necessitated expansion of the staff of skilled workers and management personnel. For this purpose, on-the-job training is conducted today. The company recruits young people, high school graduates, and teaches them the basics of the shoe business in the workplace. Each employee has an opportunity to become an expert, technician or just improve their skills. During the implementation of this programme, more than 20 employees became certified specialists.
The Company management pays a great deal of attention to the social policy: various corporate events are held, employees are delivered to work by the office transport, there is a competitive system between shops and teams, and winners are encouraged with bonuses. The company has created many facilities for the workers’ recreation: a modern gym with fitness equipment and table tennis, pool and sauna were opened.
Torzhok Shoe Factory, CJSC today is a modern company constantly evolving, modernizing its production, increasing production volume, product range and improving product quality.
