The plant was founded in 1895 when Alexander Stein opened a small workshop with 2 workers and one lathe.  In the years 1896-1897 Stein offered services for the construction of water pipelines for estates and summer houses, drilling artesian wells.

By the year 1905, the workshop grew into a mechanical plant with 70 workers and modern machinery. The plant produced the pumps, the steam boilers, the bearings, made castings from copper, iron and bronze. In 1907 at the corner Kohanovskiy Boulevard ( Today is Oktyabskiy Prospekt) and Pankovskaya street ( Metallistov street) was built 2-storey office of brick.

In 1905-1914 the plant produced pumps, steam boilers, peat machines, tanks, castings from  bronze, copper and iron: paving slabs, hatch covers, furnace casting. It carried out orders for drilling artesian wells and water pipelines in St. Petersburg, Novgorod, Vitebsk, Smolensk, Estland, Livland provinces. The plant did construction and installation works at small enterprises. Stein sold bricks, cement, clay, mosaic tiles for floors and sidewalks, metal and ceramic pipes, water supplies and electrical goods. Also he was a representative of foreign firms for implementation of dynamos, pumps, steam boilers, steam engines, cars. The plant operated engineering office, where they carried out orders for electric lighting in the Summer theater in Sergievskiy sad (garden), on the boat bridge made for arrival of Emperor Nicholas II in August, 1903, in the People’s House named after Pushkin. Also Stein took the orders for rayling of the city tram.

In 1914 Stein sold the plant to the Military department. The plant got a name  of «Northwest workshops».

After the November revolution of 1917, the plant produced agricultural machines and repaired the locomotives. The plant got a name «Metallist». 

In 1927 «Metallist» begun to produce the flax processing plants. In 1931 Pavel Gelstein, joiner who worked on the state farm «Polonoe» near the town Porhov in Pskov Oblast invented a machine wihich was given his name — «Gelstein machine». Gelstein came to work at «Metallist».

In 1933 «Metallist» started to produce peat processing machines, the cranes for removal of stumps, peat machines and pumps.

On the 23 rd of July 1944, when Pskov was liberated from German troops, the plant laid in ruins.  During several years were built the workshops and was mounted the equipment.

In the end of 1950s, the plant began to develop and make electrical products. In January 1958  the plant was renamed as «Pskov Electric Machine Building Factory» («ПЭМЗ» in Russian letters), and in the same year the plant started to produce DC machines in mass.

In the 1970s, the plant built new workshops and put into operation a japanese assembly line for production of micromotors for cassette tape recorders. The first micromotor was assembled in PEMZ in 1977. In 1991, the plant produced 3.5 mln. pcs. of micromotors. Besides, the plant mastered the production of new series of DC machines, induction electric motors, including the motors for household appliances and special machines.

In the 1990s, the demand for manufactured products fell sharply. In a short time, the plant mastered the production of synchronous generators for passenger cars, new micro motors for cash registers, flashing beacons of special vehicles, service devices for cars, electromechanical toys. Also PEMZ started to make micromotors for electric cars, for duct ventilation. The product line was upgraded for more than 90%.

In 2003, the plant mastered the production of a phase splitter RFE-U1 for electric train, a traction motor TAD-21 for electric drive of tram, an electric motor DPTV-16.25 U2 for electric drive of cooling fan of resistor block of dump truck «BelAZ», the induction motors with outer rotor  DAK 92-45 & DAK-120 and made a plastic container K-0,75 PP for recycling of garbage.

Today PEMZ does not make neither the micromotors,  nor electric motors with outer rotor and plastic products.

The induction motor type TAD-21 was taken as a basis in development & manufacture of traction motors series ATD for electric drive of the trams, including these with a low-floor. In 2006 the plant started to produce the induction traction motors TAD-3 for drive of trolleybus. Today we make various  types of electric motors series DTA.

In 2015 the plant designed and begun producing a new induction traction motor type ATD-10 (72 kW, 500 V) for driving low-floor trams. This motor is an analog of the electric motor made by TSA.
