According to Oleg Kochetkov, the coming year promises to be no less stressful.

One of them was put into operation in August 2019, the second is planned to be commissioned in early 2020.
The company sets ambitious goals - to reach the production volume of up to 1,000 machines per year. This will be possible thanks to the introduction of new production facilities and increased efficiency in the use of existing ones.

Two members of the working group were selected as candidates for training at the School of Trainers “Productivity.
