The history of Lugansk, Ukraine started in 1795 when Catherine II promulgated a decree to establish a cast iron mill in the region. The mill was built in the River Lugan Valley. Due to the establishment of the plant, a settlement was established in the area. The mill was named Lugansky Plant in 1797, and workers and professionals were recruited from abroad and mainly from Russia. However, in 1800, the Lugansky canon foundry made the first ever cast iron. 
Meanwhile during the Napoleon war in 1812, the plant along with other plants was able to provide the Russian army with canons and ammunition. However, in the early 1800s, the location promoted commerce due to its suitable location. 
Around the 1870s, a railway was constructed. On the base of Lugansky settlement, a decree was signed by the Russian Empire to establish Lugansk town. However, the construction of a large plant to manufacture steam engines was started by the German Gustav Hartman in 1896. The company recorded a success when the first steam engine was fabricated in 1900.
