Russia's only BMP manufacturer emerged from crisis

53

Kurganmashzavod PJSC (KMZ) announced its exit from their crisis. Last year, it was able to increase its profits by almost 500 times.


This was reported to the TASS news agency by the press service of the plant.

KMZ is one of the largest enterprises in the military-industrial complex of Russia and is the only manufacturer of infantry fighting vehicles in the country, armed with almost 30 armies of the world. The plant is part of the Rostec structure.

In 2019, the company's profit amounted to more than 90 billion rubles, which exceeded the same indicator of the previous year by 469 times. At the same time, in 2018, KMZ reached positive financial indicators for the first time since 2014, making a profit of almost 193 million rubles. The plant managed to overcome the crisis by restoring reserves for loan guarantees.

The press service of the Kurganmashzavod announced the improvement of the situation:

Today the situation is stable, the enterprise is operating normally, fulfilling the state defense order. Salaries to employees are paid regularly, there is no debt on taxes and fuel and energy resources, there is no reason to talk about the crisis.

In 2017, Vneshtorgbank filed a lawsuit to declare KMZ bankrupt, but in 2018 Rostec bought the debt of the enterprise to the bank. After that, in 2019, the paperwork on declaring the plant bankrupt was stopped.

        In 2018, Rostec acquired the debt of the enterprise to the bank. After that, in 2019, the paperwork on declaring the plant bankrupt was stopped. The enterprise has survived and is operating.

      So, while there were debts, there was no talk of profit and could not find a way out of the crisis. As soon as the debts were written off, so immediately the profit went down 500 (!) Times ... 500 times Karl ... not 10, not 20 ... but 500 ... and where was it before?

        How many privatized enterprises went bankrupt, and then just sold for a penny. As a result, today in many of our industries there is a domination of foreign shareholders and "investors" who ousted millions of employees of these enterprises from our enterprise.

          Kurgan Wheel Tractor Plant
          manufacturer of special heavy automotive vehicles from 1950 to 2011. Located in the mound.
          Cars, special chassis, truck tractors and semi-trailers produced by the plant are used in the system of the Ministry of Defense, as well as oil and gas companies. In addition, heavy-duty ballast tractors are used for towing aircraft at airfields weighing up to 200 tons.
          On April 28, 2011, the Arbitration Court of the Kurgan Region declared the plant bankrupt. Production facilities eliminated. The plant’s real estate has been partially redesigned.

          One city - two fates ... We walked along an inclined road (to bankruptcy), but the state chose caterpillars abandoning the wheels.

        Obviously, she went to get new loans to pay off interest on old debts ...
        Here is an example of how to properly provide support: they helped the manufacturer, and not the bankers.

          The main creditor of Kurganmashzavod is the State Corporation VEB. And how the Kurganmashzavod was "stocked" with debts and obligations, including "strangers", is a question for the Tractor Plants concern. What do banks have to do with it?

            How they brought the plant "to the handle" is written here in the comments, and VEB State Corporation - The BANK was ready to bankrupt the enterprise.
            But my comment that for some reason our government is more willing to help banks, not enterprises, is wrong.
            And this example is a nice difference from this trend. hi

              Formally, VEB is not a bank)) But I understand you hi
              There are some "minds" of the government and the Civil Code, who really believe that it is possible to technically bankrupt the enterprise, write off all debts, first of all to persons not connected with Rostec (to put it simply, "throw"), and then from the "clean" (in the sense without debts to third parties) list to renew the enterprise - the assets of such enterprises are pledged on loans from the state in favor of the Civil Code. There are enough problems of the KMZ type throughout the country. More often such problems are solved by administrative resources, and not by "economics", and Kurganmashzavod is just that case.
              An example with KMZ is, perhaps, a difference from the trend (with a reservation on VEB, Rostec, etc.), but I would not call it pleasant. Specifically, here, in my opinion, is simply covering up the traces of the result of the conniving attitude of certain officials over the past seven years.

        Interest went to the banks. When an enterprise works to repay loans, it is difficult to talk about profit, as well as about development.

        The question is why ... do we have so many banks? Moreover, those who strip naked not only the citizens of the country, but also state-owned enterprises, defense enterprises. In the USSR there were only a few state-owned banks and they did an excellent job of supporting the economy of a huge country.
        I think that demonstrative executions of bankers through one within a very short time will return the normal situation. Either the banks will begin to work for the good of the country, or their number will be reduced to 2 - 3. Which is quite enough.

    I generally can not understand how this state-owned enterprise could have flown so.
    Surely it was privatized, but in order to buy a cheaper one, it was first deliberately driven into debt.
    Expected to cut metal, but had to work.

    In 2017, Vneshtorgbank filed a lawsuit to declare KMZ bankrupt

    - There is a long-standing need at the legislative level to prohibit banks from buying up manufacturing enterprises, especially those included in the military-industrial complex. Under the threat of revocation of the license and criminal prosecution of the owners of these banks. Otherwise, industry may be lost. It is time to recall that for the sake of 300% of the profit the capitalist will commit any crime, and he does not give a damn about the defense capability of the country, which is his homeland.

    The news is unambiguously with a + sign, but there is a question - "effective managers" who drove into such a profitable enterprise that they had to pay from the state budget to banks, why are they not punished, and then they are raised? the former director, who just got these unnecessary loans, (accidentally the husband of Mikhalkov's daughter) instead of responsibility - now the director of the central scientific research institute of precision engineering - maybe when the "managers" will really have to answer for the failures, then the defense industry will work normally?

      you do not know the tasks that were set before him. most likely the former leadership deliberately brought it to this. everything there is not just mediocre but simply stupid. this is generally common practice. you can’t write anything criminal here. but the fact that he was well settled somewhere just says that he completed the tasks. you just need to understand that the circle of these tasks can have nothing in common with what everyone thinks.

    The fact that the strategic enterprise fell into the bondage of banks is a minus to the government in which the debt was formed. It is good that it is not Alfa Bank controlled by Western investors and the Hasidic lobby sitting in London. Bets for strategists should be minimal, but alas, this did not happen. On the other hand, profit compared to last year is 500 times. The guys who set the price with such figures for a defense order. If we are talking about the external export component, this is one thing, but if it is only an internal product. Then you need to look at what they invest there in the pricing of the product. and reduce the appetites of business executives. After all, this is the state budget of the country.

      Kabalili-Bankrupt were not banks, but also the State Corporation Vnesheconombank. This time.
      A normal commercial bank didn’t understand anyone, don’t understand that I would not lend. These are two.
      Alfa-Bank is no worse than Sberbank - both are non-state, and one of them generally not only belongs significantly to non-residents, but also half belongs to an incomprehensible organization controlled by Western investors and the lobby. These are three.
      There are not one, not two, and not five strategic enterprises in Russia. Many of them are not state-owned, many of the state are successfully bankrupt by the state - in the person of the Civil Code, many are enslaved by banks, or by Rostec. These are four.
      The state defense industry is always the state budget of the country, even for the domestic market, at least for the external one, and it’s too late to look there, we must do it a long time ago. It's five.
