Dear staff members of the Editorial Board, "For Non-Ferrous Metals" newspaper, veterans of the printing industry!
On behalf of the many thousands of employees of Almalyk MMC JSC, I heartily congratulate you on the 65th anniversary of the newspaper publication!
The first issue of our newspaper "For Nonferrous Metals" was published on October 16, 1957.
The anniversary of the newspaper is the history of the plant in newspaper pages; it is a holiday not only for its staff, but also for many of its readers.
From one issue to another issue, the newspaper has carried out and is keeping a vivid chronicle of the generation and development of the plant and the native city. All these years it has been and remains as a school of professionalism, which brought up a galaxy of talented journalists, including Pyotr Moskalev, Galina Vorobyova, Elena Raykova, Nina Tokareva, Roza Tsoi, Vostryakova Galina and many others.
A lot has changed within 65 years, and its demand by readers, primarily workers and veterans of the plant, remains unchanged. Labor victories, accomplishments of ordinary working people, news and experience of departments, human joys and sorrows - all this becomes the subject of newspaper publications.
The newspaper pages reflected the fate of thousands of our workers - people of different professions and generations.
Today, the creative team of the newspaper objectively covers the life and activities of all departments of the plant, topical issues of production, social, cultural and spiritual life of the plant. Each of you professionally does its job so that repeatedly the readers receive a fresh issue of our favorite newspaper “For Non-Ferrous Metals”.
I am sure that the huge creative potential, high journalistic skills will continue to be the key to the fruitful work of the newspaper's employees. Bear the high title of a journalist with honor; remain true to your professional and civic duty.
