It became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant when its location (on Pimenovskaia Street) was re-named Krasnoproletarskaia (Red Proletarian) Street. By late 1924, the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii was under the management of Gosizdat (State Publishing House). The workshop retained the Krasnii Proletarii name while management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
