Today Joint Stock Company “Goznak” is a modern dynamically developing enterprise which has preserved and built on the best traditions of the Expedition of Storing State Papers. Right from the very beginning of the Expedition’s foundation the seeds of its future prosperity were sown. The central production site uniting all stages of banknote production, starting with papermaking and up to its designing and printing was created. It was an outstanding novelty for its time, which makes Goznak (as the Enterprise has been known since 1919) competitive even today, almost two centuries later.
