The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the opening of a new workshop at the Lviv armored plant, where Dozor-B armored vehicles will be manufactured:
Yesterday, September 11, at the Lviv armored plant, which is part of the state concern Ukroboronprom, a new workshop was opened for the serial production of tactical wheeled combat vehicles "Dozor-B". The corresponding order was signed by the acting director of the company Roman Tymkov.
The workshop is equipped with modern welding equipment, air-plasma cutting machines, automatic welding and other assembly equipment. The workshop mastered the production, which corresponds to the quality management system.
“Already at the stage when the first Dozor-B machines are completing state tests, a production unit was created to quickly meet the military’s need for modern armored vehicles,” said Roman Tymkov.
Now in the shop assembly line. Already two cars are fully prepared and have recently been submitted for public inspection. Another pair of Dozor-B armored cars are located at one of the ranges of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where they are undergoing state tests.
The newly appointed head of the BBM assembly shop, Yevgeny Lozinsky, noted that at this stage the output coincides with the formation of production.
“In a short time, we plan to reach full production capacity, which will be dozens of cars per month,” he said. - Besides, during this time we hope to man up the shop staff. We have already announced that our workshop and our company need qualified technical workers: layout designers, turners, design engineers, process engineers, fitters, etc. At the same time, the salary at LBTZ is higher than the average in Lviv region: assemblers, turners , welders, servicemen, and others. If the guys from the ATO who are demobilized come to our workplace, it will be great. Who, if not they, know military technology? In addition, they will be able to bring innovations and useful tips to the production process.
According to the head of the workshop, in the near future the line will be replenished with modern robotic machines, so the pace of production will increase. We add that for the production of machines used engines of foreign production. The rest are made in Ukraine. In addition, the Lviv armored plant, which has passed international certification in the ISO 9000 system, selects components and raw materials also according to the requirements of certification.
