MOSCOW. Aktie von 1000 Rubel. brown, black. No 2813. Repaired tear. The partnership "Friedr. Bayer et Comp." was founded in 1863 in Barmen, Germany - by dye salesman Friedrich Bayer and master dyer Johann Friedrich Weskott. The object of the company was the manufacture and sale of synthetic dyestuffs, which replaced the rather scarce and expensive natural dyes. The company successfully benefited from the boom of the textile industry. In 1881 Bayer was transformed in a joint stock company. Between 1881 and 1913, Bayer developed into a chemical company with international operations. The creation of a worldwide sales organization was therefore a decisive factor in the company's continuing development. Foreign affiliated companies were established in order to secure and expand Bayer's position in important markets. Shortly before World War I, the company maintained subsidiaries in Russia, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom and the United States. There was already a Moscow plant in 1876, but it gained its legal form in 1912. Bayer's Russiansubsidiary was expropriated as a result of the Russian Revolution. Text in Russian and German.
