Last week one of the leading universities of Kharkiv and Ukraine – National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute” – celebrated its 130th anniversary.
SE “Malyshev Plant” and NTU “KhPI” are united by more than age-old history: the university turns 130 years old this year, and our plant – 120 years. And we have always been inextricably tied: creative findings, operational issues, adoption of advanced technologies and creation of unique specimens of high-quality equipment for the agro-industrial complex and military one for strengthening the country's defense potential. All that we have done and are doing together.

SE “Malyshev plant” keeps on working in intensive mode with the aim of performing state order of the Ministry of Defence and establish troubleproof production of tank «Oplot» for the needs of Ukrainian army. The work for staff selection was activated, basic and auxiliary workshops were put into action , requirements for product quality were increased.
Today Ukraine can be proud of the fact, that despite of all economical difficulties of recent years, she could save her tank building. We should remark that only in seven countries the production of this fighting vehicle is established. And we are the one of them. Also a leading enterprise – the only enterprise producing tanks in Ukraine is SE «Malyshev Plant», which has recently celebrated 120 years of its troubleproof work in mechanical engineering.
Tank building in Ukraine has many prospects, because it is totally concentrated on domestic spare parts. That is why on Malyshev plant, in light of recent events, did not happen a rupture of economic ties and production collapse, just on the contrary – the rise took place. That can not be said about major part of industrial enterprises of Kharkiv, one part of which is in collapse and the second part is completely ceased to exist.
At this stage, the amendment on the internal political situation in the country, the enterprise has the task of national importance: first of all, to establish and build up the uninterrupted production of tanks for the needs of the national army. All plant workshops and departments are entirely focused on the execution of this task. The plant increases production volumes, the plant comes to life, the plant has a future. It can be said that the current time at the plant – this period of its remission, reviving after a long period of stagnation and decay, which occurred during the previous years. Today, and the plant's management and all its staff as a whole look with confidence to the future. In fact there is a good reason.
