The enterprise is aimed at the full automation of manufacturing processes. They installed robotic systems and automatic welding machines that reduce the risk of any defects.
SERGEY SHVETSOV, WELDER:
- Now it takes 90 seconds to make one meter welding seam, which is 7 times faster than before
This year, the plant received a loan worth more than 10.5 billion tenge to expand production. It is planned to launch hot-dip galvanizing, forging and pressing workshops. Construction works have already started.
ALEKSANDER DONSKOV, DIRECTOR GENERAL, MACHINE BUILDING PLANT:
- This year, we started construction of two more production facilities, which will strengthen our positions in the machine building market, and create 180 new jobs.
At present, Atyrau machine building plant competes with European and the U.S. companies. According to the estimates of the management, after the launch of new production facilities, the annual growth of production volumes will reach 70%.
