History

Amursk was founded on 19 June 1958, in connection with the construction of a pulp mill near the Nanai settlement Padali. At its founding, the settlement was designated an urban-type settlement. Town status was granted in 1973.

The town's population grew from 3,500 in 1959 to a high point of 58,395 inhabitants in 1989. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the population has shrunk by around 20%, with an estimated 2008 population of around 46,000.

Economy and infrastructure

In addition to the cellulose and paper mill, there is chemical production and timber production conducted in the town and surrounds, as well as some machinery production.

There is a goods railway to the town, connecting to the Khabarovsk-Komsomolsk-Dzemgi line at the station of Mylki. There is also a road connection to Komsomolsk.
