The factory was founded by I. Kuznetsov in 1897 in the village of Botanovka located 12 km from the town of Chudovo. The porcelain and earthenware items were marked with the monogram "GF" (Gruzino Factory).
After the revolution the enterprise was nationalized. Botanovka was renamed to Krasnofarfornyy. In 1920s the factory became a part of Novgubfarfor trust. They mostly made propaganda products during that period (marked NGF).
After Novgubfarfor merged with Tsentrfarfortrest, the factory was reorganized to produce porcelain for households.
During the Second World War factory buildings were demolished. In 1942 factory equipment and employees were evacuated to Orenburg region, village Saraktash. Thus was established a new entity Saraktash Faience Factory.
In 1944 rebuilding of the Krasnofarfornyy factory started. It began with demining of the area. Production started in 1946. Lyudmila Pavlova-Koshman was a chief designer for the factory in 1949 to 1956 period. In 1978, Viktor Alekseevich Biryukov became the chief artist of the plant.
In 1990s the enterprise changed its legal form a few times. in 2003 the plant went through bankruptcy proceedings and became known as "Kuznetsovsky Porcelain". In 2013 the factory was already closed down.
