It took a lot of work. In September 2018, a delegation from the Andijan region of the Republic of Uzbekistan visited StankoMashStroy with the particular goal of restoring communications lost from Soviet times regarding the supply of lathes. In November, representatives of StankoMashStroy visited Uzbekistan and got acquainted with the industrial potential of the country.
The result of this work was the conclusion of a contract for the supply of a universal lathe and screw-cutting lathe of the ST 16k20 series produced by StankoMashStroy. One of the subsidiaries of the largest American automobile corporation General Motors, which specializes in the production of bodies for heavy trucks, purchased the equipment.
