The history of the birth of the Zhydachiv pulp and paper mill began in 1945, when the official announcement about the establishment of a paper mill in the city of Zhydachiv was first made. According to the decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR, in July 1945, preparatory work began for the construction of the enterprise, which lasted less than three years. The memorable date is March 17, 1949 – on this day the first stone was laid in the foundation of the main body of the cardboard factory, and the plant’s birthday is considered on October 17, 1951 – the launch day of the cardboard-making machine No. 1, from the conveyor of which the first cardboard came.
For all the years of its existence, Zhydachiv pulp and paper mill was the leader of the pulp and paper industry and made a significant contribution to the development of the country’s economy. Along with the implementation of production tasks, the plant was a forge of highly qualified personnel and specialists for other enterprises in the industry. Thanks to the existing technological processes and unique equipment, the plant was not only an advanced production base, but also an educational platform for students, as well as a center for research and implementation of new technologies for research institutes, which ultimately contributed to the development of the entire pulp and paper industry in Ukraine.
The plant’s activity was highly appreciated by the country’s leadership, and therefore, according to Decree of the President of Ukraine No. 885/2008 of October 1, 2008, it was the birthday of the Zhydachiv Pulp and Paper Mill that the professional holiday was approved in Ukraine – the Day of Pulp and Paper which is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of October.
