Metrowagonmash is an engineering company based in Mytishchi, near Moscow. Until 1992 it was known as Mytishchinsky Maschinostroitelnyi Zavod (MMZ, Mytishchi Machine-building Factory). The plant was founded in 1897 to manufacture railcars, initially for the Russian North Railway. Tramways and snowploughs for Moscow were produced from 1903, electric passenger trains from 1929 and metro-cars from 1934.
During World War II self-propelled guns, military tractors, tracked vehicles and other military material were produced. The plant was partially evacuated to the Urals in October 1941, though a decision to reverse this move was made the following year. By the end of the war the company had gained experience in designing anti-aircraft vehicles.
Post-war the company has concentrated on production of subway cars, dump trucks and armoured tracked vehicles (e.g. GM chassis, 3M8 Krug/SA-4 GANEF and ZSU-23-4). Large numbers of Metrovagonmash subway cars have been deployed in nearly every subway (Metro) system of the former Soviet Union, as well as in Budapest, Prague, Sofia and Warsaw.
