History of the company name
During the first seven years of development, the name of the company was changed several times. When registering the company back in 1987, the ruling party insisted on a Russian name of the company , so it was settled for the name "Planet". A year later Sigitas Mickus succeeded in officially renaming the company to "Azhualas", which translated from Lithuanian means "oak". At this time an idea of another name - "Tauras" (meaning "Aurochs" in Lithuanian) was born, to which the company returned two years later. In 1995 the company merged with the engineering industry cooperative "Phoenix 1" whereby a combined name "Tauras-Fenix" surfaced. Today "Tauras-Fenix" is a well-known engineering brand which earned the trust of numerous customers from Russia, CIS and abroad.
