The Kalashnikov Concern intends to acquire a controlling stake in the Kingisepp Machine-Building Plant Group of Companies (KMZ), reports Kommersant.


Kalashnikov acquires Kingisepp plant


According to a newspaper source, “the deal is still in the process, but it is already being finalized.” The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.

"This is part of our strategy and the expansion of competencies in the service - including, we are talking about synergies in the field of shipbuilding," - confirmed in the concern.

The publication states that “KMZ is engaged in the production, repair and supply of diesel, gas turbine and deck equipment of dual purpose; He is the lead executor of a number of contracts in the framework of the state defense order, and also works in cooperation: for example, he supplied the Baltic shipyard Yantar (Kaliningrad) with anchor-mooring equipment for the large landing ship of the 11711 project (Ivan Gren) and the oceanographic research vessel of the 22010 project ( cipher "Cruys") ".

The plant also carries out repairs and maintenance of domestic and foreign ship gas turbine and diesel engines, including from Ukraine.

According to a source in the defense industry, the purchase of KMZ is connected with the concern’s desire to “develop a new business line”, as well as with the intention to develop its own shipbuilding cluster.

Director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Ruslan Pukhov believes that the current state of the shipbuilding industry plays into the hands of Kalashnikov.

The efficiency of the United Shipbuilding Corporation is now at a low level, which causes discontent among all customers, including the Ministry of Defense,
- The expert said, adding that in such a situation "private players have a real chance to gain a foothold in the market."

    And this for what? For the fact that they carry out piracy at sea against our fishermen?! ?? request

      Kalashnikov walks wide, as if his pants were not torn. It would be better if they learned to make hunting weapons so that they would not have to touch it with a file.

      In your opinion, is it better to carry engines for repair to Ukraine? And we have not yet measured these engines.

      Funny question. And on whose engines does our fleet still go? Zorya-Mashproekt, apparently? But how will they be and who will repair them?

      It's time, I’m only a little confused by the specifics of the plant. Kalashnikov, of course, recently in the shipbuilding topic and so far only boats of small displacement, and here such a plant. Looks like there are plans for the construction of large shipbuilding orders.
      Few people know, but the plant still provides maintenance and overhaul of gas turbine units and gas turbogenerators, including marine ones.
      I have long thought why the data of the enterprise and KMZ, including some kind of PELLA or USC, will not pick up for themselves, and then it happened. All defense plants smoothly pass under state control, and rightly so.

    I generally ceased to understand. "Kalashnikov" decided to acquire EVERYTHING in our country? The arms concern suddenly begins to acquire non-core assets. Either the Molniya NGO, which designed reusable ships, or something else, now here is the repair plant? Or maybe it would be worthwhile to concentrate on the assortment of our own products, and not to scatter ??? I can not understand the meaning of such transactions. For example, it’s as if I, when releasing building materials, I suddenly started to buy a chain of restaurants in which I don’t understand either the ear or the snout

      "Kalash" riveted the sea (in the bins of about 6 million). Now a multi-profile concern has been made from Kalashnikov. Which, along the way, will work not only on the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation, but also produce modern civilian products. According to the state armament program, starting in 2020, the military-industrial complex will smoothly reorient itself towards the production of civilian products of the type: 50 to 50.
      Kalashnikov is a pioneer.

      here, after all, how to look at it, if you have available personnel and a desire to expand pr.vo. I admit, I didn’t really follow the Kalashnikov’s purchases, but it is striking that he is buying up, to put it mildly, barely dragging his feet. why let’s say the concern fails, because not the gunsmiths from the assembly line of the AK will produce, in this case, ships, or gas turbine engines. the demand for these professions will increase, hence the employment of the population, especially young people.

    You can rivet and 50 million in the warehouse. The question is different. Is the concern nowhere to develop in its direction? To increase the range of manufactured core products. I would understand if enterprises were bought, for example, those engaged in various steels, technology improved. So that Kalashnikov is famous not only for its unpretentiousness and reliability, but also for ultra-precise shooting. It comes to ideotism, when to create high-precision weapons, such as Lobaev rifles or ORSIS, we are forced to buy a "bar" for the trunks in the same America? What, in this direction, expansion is not possible? Or a matter of gunpowder? Or so that cartridge plants enter the concern? But honestly, buying an engine repair plant or an NGO that was involved in the creation of Buran - honestly, I don’t understand the salt in such purchases.
    Sorry, I’ll give our "sworn" friends as an example, but I didn’t hear something when Colt or Winchester bought all the plants in a row. Both motor and space. Each IMHO should do their own thing. The gunsmith - to design weapons and create promising patterns that will go into a series of 10-15 years later, motorists - to make cars

    And then it all starts to remind with an unkind word of the recalled conversion of the time of Gorbachev, when the missile plants made lines for sorting and bottling milk or baby strollers. Of course they did the highest quality, but also the same highest price. And as a result, instead of saturating the market with consumer goods, there was simply a collapse. Although there were examples. At one time, a frying pan was caught and bought, which was made from the waste products of rocket engines in Verkhnyaya Salda (or Lower, I don’t remember anymore). The quality was such that TEFAL and other brands were not around. Although apparently not very ..

      In short: In 2012, Izhevsk Plant went bankrupt.
      In 2013 - privatized and named - Kalashnikov concern (49%)
      In 2014 - came under the sanctions of the United States and Canada. Despite this,
      In 2014, consolidated revenue amounted to 5,5 million rubles.
      In 2015 = 11,8 billion p. of which for export = 828,8 million rubles
      In 2015, the number of employees was 11 thousand 700 people.
      The release of automatic small arms = 90%,
      Small arms sniper release = 95%.
      In 2016, revenue doubled. The growth in production volume is 158%, labor productivity growth = 139%, the average salary is 33,1 thousand rubles.
      The corporation is expanding vigorously both geographically (from Kaliningrad) and the range of products for both the military-industrial complex and the civilian sector. hi

      In the mid-80s, I saw with a friend the Mayak transistor produced by some kind of mailbox. Ranges are simply an indecent set (not less than a dozen), the reception quality is beyond praise, the size is no more than two school textbooks (anyone who remembers those times will understand). So the "boxes" are simply obliged to produce consumer goods in the good sense of the word.

    I read somewhere and the report saw that the owner of Kalashnikov was the first in the country to carry out, as soon as possible, the so-called modernization of 4.0 roofing felts, thrifty about-roofing felts, something like this. Putin himself came and watched -
    obviously liked it. after that, he popped up to buy everything. They said that they would take it as a sample and project it on all ROSTEH enterprises

    As for Ukrainian gas turbine engines, many do not know - Tyumen Motor Builders are engaged in repair in every possible way (in particular DR59, DG90, DU80, DN80). They also have plans for production - DG90, for example, is the first by 2019. They have already made good money on this.
