Current name, "TEMP State-owned Enterprise", was acquired by late 1970s. From 1932 to 1964 this factory was known by the name "Orjonikidze Moscow Radio Works", and from 1935 till 1946 as "Orjonikidze Moscow Radio Works No. 203".

Factory was relocated from Peterburg in February, 1918, and the first of its names in Moscow were "The First Governmental Electromechanical Plant" in 1918-1925 (see: moscmemz) and "Moselektrik" in 1925-1932 (see: moselektri).

Firstly named "The first govermental elektromechanical plant" (see MEMZ Nr.1)(moscow-el), secondly - Moscow radio plant "Temp", finely name - Moscow industrial union "Temp", see "moscowtemp".

Founded: 1918

First civil production from 1926 were crystal sets from P-2 to P-7 followed by 2-tube audion receiver RPL-2. TRF receivers were in production in 1930-1935 (ECHS series, SI-235). Starting 1935 the factory switched completely to military radios, primarily for tanks and air force. Relocated to Sarapoul (near Izhevsk, Udmurtia) in November, 1941, this Moscow factory gave birth to "Orjonikidze Sarapoul Radio Works No. 203" where military radios only have been manufactured till 1946. Moscow factory reinstated its production in 1946 sharing it now between military radios and civil models like "Rodina" and "Vesna" cheaper receivers. Famous for its moderately priced KVN-49 TV set which became very popular in post-war USSR.
