On August 8, the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov, during his visit to the enterprise manufacturing electrochemical machines PECM Industrial, LLC in Ufa, held a meeting concerning its development, the press-service of the President RB informs.

At the enterprise modern technologies and new approaches to processing of metals are used. By means of machines produced here it is possible to make parts of any configuration from alloys, practically of any endurance. Such technology is of high demand today not only in Russia, but also worldwide.

However plans on dynamic development of the enterprise contradict to the reality. This year PECM Industrial, LLC was due to issue production for the sum of several million roubles, but it is obvious, that the production output will not exceed 140 million roubles.

The main reason of such state of affairs is absence at the enterprise of highly skilled management supevising both direct sales, and formation of market channels for such equipment.

“Probably, developers of the equipment do not have possibility to form such new reality. Their task is to elaborate new equipment, to create technologies, to promote them in the scientific world. And further structures which are engaged in sales should be involved there”, Rustem Khamitov said.

During the session several variants of development were considered. One of them assumes participation of the republic in the enterprise share capital that will allow to make support from venture and regional funds.

It should be mentioned that the PECM Industrial, LLC was founded in 2009 to produce precise environment friendly electrochemical machines for manufacturing of parts from a wide range of metals, alloys, metal-ceramics and nanostructure materials. Now 48 people work at the enterprise. ROSNANO acts as a co-investor of the project which total cost is 286 million roubles. It is planned to reach a design rated full power (470 machines a year) in 2015.
