On Day of the Republic of Tatarstan, the capital of petrochemistry and oil refining, Nizhnekamsk, celebrated its 53rd anniversary. Traditionally, the most colourful festive action in the city was the grand demonstration of labour collectives, in which the company TAIF-NK took one of the first positions.

Annual participants of the festive demonstration — the employees of TAIF-NK PSC
Festive events on the occasion of City Day in Nizhnekamsk have been held on August 30, the day of the Republic of Tatarstan, for the past few years. Traditionally, the festivities start with a large-scale and colourful parade. A bright column moves along one of the main streets of Nizhnekamsk, where residents and guests of the city are welcomed by first builders, honourary citizens, employees of enterprises and organizations, schoolchildren, students, creative youth and preschool children. In total, about 4,000 people have taken part in the procession.
Annual participants of the festive demonstration — the employees of TAIF-NK PSC. Representatives of the gasoline plant, oil refinery, Heavy Residue Conversion Complex and management in branded clothing, with balloons, flags with company logos expressed their solidarity and raised the spirits of all guests of the holiday.
“The demonstration in honour of the birthday of Nizhnekamsk is a good opportunity to express themselves, to show solidarity with their colleagues from other enterprises. And of course, this is an occasion to communicate with each other in an informal setting. Such events are necessary because they unite people,” said Sergey Prokofiev, an employee of the oil refinery of TAIF-NK PSC.
Rushan Shamgunov, the director general of TAIF-NK PSC, attended the demonstration together with the employees. He also marched in the column, which included first builders of the city, veterans and honourary citizens, Mayor of Nizhnekamsk Aydar Metshin and heads of the large enterprises of the city.
“It is very exciting to walk through the central streets of the city”
“Nizhnekamsk is one of the growth points of the republic, and its city-forming enterprises are the locomotives of the economy of Tatarstan. TAIF-NK is a conscientious largest taxpayer and makes a worthy contribution to the economy not only of the Republic of Tatarstan, but also of Russia. We also support and actively participate in large-scale republican and city events. Today, with our large and friendly team of production workers, we want to show that the work of a person, a specialist in his field, is the guarantor of social well-being of all citizens. The contribution of an employee to the industry determines the economic development of the whole state,” said Director General of TAIF-NK PSC Rushan Shamgunov.
TAIF-NK has taken part in festive processions dedicated to City Day for many years. For example, in 2013 the majestic ship, bringing a sense of carnival and creating a mood of celebration among the citizens, was going “at full steam” in the convoy. In 2014, on the occasion of the 48th anniversary of Nizhnekamsk, a seven-meter airship hovered over the column during a demonstration. The slogan on the airship “To new heights! To new victories!” reflects the company's strategy, for which the movement forward is a key factor in its development. In 2016, the active movement of the company was personified by an unusual cheerful locomotive, which was included in the Guinness World Records book as the longest pneumatic figure in the world.
This year, in the framework of the municipal program “The Streets of Our City”, the organizers of the event distributed the streets of Nizhnekamsk among the participants: the manufacturers presented a prospectus of Chemists and Tire manufacturers, installers and engineers — the Stroiteley streets, the teachers — Shkolny Boulevard, and the students — Studencheskaya and Yunosti Streets. TAIF-NK had the honour to represent at the demonstration the Byzova Street, named after Russian Chemist Boris V. Byzov.
“It is very exciting to walk through the central streets of the city and represent your company at such a large-scale event. When a thousand eyes are looking at you and joyfully welcoming, you feel pride in themselves and your native company,” said Leysan Garifullina, an employee of TAIF-NK.
TAIF-NK can rightly be called a locomotive of creative ideas that are stunningly brought to life at various city events by the efforts of the production staff.
