Coat of arms

History of Pervouralsk began in 1730, when Vasily Demidov began the building of the iron-making factory. It produced pipes for more than 200 years. The village around the factory has got the name "Vasilyevsko-Shaytansky". Only in 1933 the village became a city and was renamed into Pervouralsk, and the factory was renamed "Pervouralsky Novotrubny Works".

The annual growth rate of industrial output remains steadily at 25-30%; the retail turnover increases 20% a year (2005 [ Ural Information Bureau] ). This positively affects the unemployment rate, which stays at low 1.16% (2005 [ Ural Information Bureau] ), and leads to the number of vacancies to exceed the number of unemployed people.
