Head of UVZ: no one will divide the corporation into military and civilian production

11
Production facilities of Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) will not be divided into civilian and military enterprises, this is complete nonsense, reports Interfax-AVN statement of the head of the corporation Alexander Potapov.



Honestly, except for complete nonsense, I can not call it. I first heard it in 2004, and as Tagil colleagues suggested to me, such rumors have been around for twenty or even thirty years,
said the general director.

He explained that "civil and military proceedings are partially linked with each other, and certain technological redistribution is simply impossible to separate."

Potapov recalled that last December, Vladimir Putin declared the need to develop civilian production in defense enterprises.

Other enterprises of our corporation, for example, Plant No. 9, cannot yet accomplish this task quickly: the N-9 produces only cannons and they will have to master diversification from scratch. And the "Uralvagonzavod" initially high capacity to increase civilian products,
he said.

And why refuse it? This is contrary to common sense. Therefore, it is absolutely clear that no one will divide Uralvagonzavod into civil and non-civil components. And I - the first who will come to the defense of the company, if such a question arises,
added the CEO.

Uralvagonzavod is a diversified machine-building complex that produces about 100 types of products, including military equipment, road-building machines, all-metal gondola cars, specialized wagons and other products.

    Of course, separation does not make sense, UVZ has always been focused on the production of both peaceful and military products.

      So it is, but then who will compensate for the loss-making projects of the civilian part of UVZ? Due to the military budget? And then who will benefit from this?

          Banquets had to be rolled up less, and then the company was at a loss, and there was some money to swell, moreover, by 10 lyam. We have such a sin, unfortunately, has an all-Russian character

      Gorbachev’s “conversion” was remembered ... All military plants literally forced to produce pots, shovels from titanium, etc. ..There were everyone in shock (specialists of the highest qualification were engaged in drawings of pots and pans and the plan was lowered to them)! With this the collapse of the USSR began ... Thank God they managed to save the backbone and came to their senses in time (look at Ukraine)

    For UVZ, as well as for many enterprises of the USSR, civilian products were like a defense cover. UVZ is power bully hi and really do not need to change anything.

    And I remember these ideas since perestroika, they share it lively, then they privatize and then everything is on its side. Look at the aviation, but it’s not enough that the reformers have filled up enterprises

      yes it is not enough whether the reformers failed the enterprises

      And if the market is overshooted by tanks and wagons? What will UVZ stand for, and the state and taxpayers pay for it simple? Suddenly, India and other importers will arrange the release of technology, or will they buy from Turkey or Israel there? Who will UVZ work for? Such an option is interesting.

        And you consider what Russia will do if this plant is closed.
        The story of the tank factory in St. Petersburg did not teach? When we cut the tank stand, but it turned out that the world didn’t come, and besides us rams, the Americans did not stop releasing tanks, and not only the Americans.
        And then they woke up and asked for a billion for restoration, but the train had already left, now they aren’t releasing tanks in St. Petersburg and the design office was covered with a copper basin.
        Do not ask stupid questions
