The engineering director Fyarid Kutaev gave a tour over the industrial premises.
He said that enterprises of the Russian Federation and neighboring countries are the consumers of the plant’s products; in particular, the equipment is exported to Belarus, Moldova, and Kazakhstan.

Dummy engineering buildings with a list of manufactured products and the geography of deliveries of industrial machines were shown to the presidential envoy and the region head.
Particular emphasis was placed on the fact that since 2015 the company has been implementing the project for production of two new types of machines – vertical turning machines with numerical program control and vertical turning 5-axis machining units.
Mikhail Babich and Ivan Belozertsev were also informed that in the current year serial production of screw-cutting lathes of series CT16K20 will start.

As the governor of the Penza region Ivan Belozertsev noted, the company actively masters new technologies, develops its own new machines, and puts them into full scale production.
