English translation:Hello! Sorry to trouble you, but...
Explanation:
...we (the employees of such-and-such a factory) are appealing to you...

I know this isn't really so apologetic in Russian, but I can't think of any normal way of using this sort of phrase in English without the apology element.

Yes, certainly. I should have ended the sentence with a full stop (period) as in the original.
