ďThe Professional Lycee No. 1 is our companyís main partner in training specialists for working positions. In 2009 thanks to support from PMZ, the lycee won the national project ĎEducationí and received financing to develop its study and materials foundation in the amount of 64 million rubles. In 2011 the lycee and PMZ signed a contract on cooperation. Every year we have dozens of new employees starting with us after graduating from this institution. The factory finds it important to support events that help students and lycee teachers develop, improve the institutionís reputation, and the prestige of early professional education as a whole. In becoming partners of high-profile professional educational institutions, we help build the foundation for our own companyís long-term development.
