The major part of the plant’s output is traditionally exported. In 2009 the export share in the overall volume of the plant’s sales made 30,5% — 2,2 times more than in 2008.
As the news-service of “Sterlitamacsky machine-tool plant” reported, in spite of the hardest competition in the machine-tool construction sphere and the global economic crisis, substantial fall of the internal demand and shutdown of many investment projects the plant has managed to hold its export indices at the level of pre-crisis 2008 and the success was achieved thanks to the export of the lathes with numerical program control.
Thus, the portal five-coordinate turn-mill machine 2000VHT was delivered for Malaysia, the milling machine500V – for Germany and several special high-tech lathes – for India.
Stable growth is observed in cooperation with CIS countries for the last two-three years: with Byelorussia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. The cooperation projects with Byelorussian enterprises are actively supported by Government RB.
