The Krupski Mill factory produced black gunpowder, pyroxylin for grenades, and then dynamite and heavy artillery shells (20-hundredweight bombs) which in large quantities were delivered to the tsarist army during the Russian-Japan War in 1904-1905. Significant income earned during the war prompted the shareholders to expand the factory. In less than 40 years from its origin, the factory experienced a period of splendour and prosperity. It produced explosives not only for the army, but also for the mining industry.
