All this became possible thanks to the mobilization of available working resources in the enterprise last month, people worked overtime, came to work at the weekend, being able to make up for the fact that they did not manage to do in the shortened holiday January.

Gradually, during this period, the steering apparatus was substantially renewed – a new team came to the plant management. What did they do during this period of time, and how clear and bright are the prospects?

And it is common, that not only the content of the present is significant(that is important too – qualitative goods of the famous brand is always actual), but the attention itself and involvement into pre-New Year congratulation of every factory worker.

Kharkiv industry now is booming. According to the estimates of experts during the outgoing year our enterprises have sold 40% more products than during the last one. First of all, the index of production is raised due to the plants of defense orientation, and our plant comes first as well as Morozov Design Bureau and armored plant.
Today Kharkiv enterprises have fulfilled orders for 60 billion hryvnias. This figure in Kharkiv Regional State Administration is called high, but further growth is also expected: the success should be consolidated. Mainly, due to the “defense”, due to the increase of orders for the enterprises belonging to the Ukroboronprom group. For this purpose it is necessary to combine efforts in work both with each other and with the “civil” plants.
