    Interview with Fizuli Seyfedov, Executive Director of KKU Tractor plants Concern LTD

    In the corporate edition of KKU "Tractor Plants" was published an interview "Armor for the" winged infantry "with the executive director of Volgograd Engineering Company VGTZ (former Volgograd Tractor Plant) Fizuli Seyfedov.

    Volgograd production site of the Concern "Tractor Plants" includes a special design bureau, as well as subdivisions of the main and auxiliary production. What priorities are currently being addressed by VMK VGTZ, says Fizuli Seyfedov, the company's executive director.

    - How can you determine the main purpose of the Volgograd site of the "Tractor Plants"?

    - Let's start with the fact that during the 85-year history of the Volgograd Tractor Plant dozens of types and modifications of landing vehicles of various purposes were created here. The Special Design Bureau of VGTZ is the main design bureau in Russia for the development of military equipment for airborne troops. And today the enterprise continues development work in the interests of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. At the industrial site, both production of serial machines and prototypes of products are conducted. And, it should be noted, the tasks are successfully performed.

    At the production site today there are just over 1800 people who provide a full cycle of manufacturing special-purpose products. This is welding of housings, manufacturing of components, mechanical, galvanic and thermal processing of parts, assembling and testing of machines, their service and support.

    - What are the main products produced today at the enterprise?

    - Tracked armored vehicles BMD-4M, accessories for BTR-MDM ("Shell"), spare parts for BMD-2, operated in the Airborne Forces of Russia.

    - What about spare parts for BMD-4M serially produced?

    - Their release is scheduled for 2017. Moreover, the conclusion of relevant treaties, which will operate on a long-term basis, is planned.

    - What was the result of the company's performance in 2016?

    - The volume of production of the last year compared to 2015 increased four-fold. Since the state armament program approved by the President of the Russian Federation is designed for the period until 2020, we expect a full load of production for the next few years. In parallel, we are conducting prospective development work in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry, which also plan to receive serious "dividends".

    - Probably, it is a question of the modernized self-propelled antitank gun 2S25? The ex-commander of the Airborne Forces, now a deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Shamanov said more than once about the waiting for this "flying tank" in the troops.

    - Last year, for state tests, prototypes of the modernized self-propelled anti-tank gun 2S25M "Sprut-SDM1" were manufactured. OCD is being conducted to create a chassis for various purposes - for a prospective self-propelled artillery gun; For a mobile airborne assortment of radio and electronic reconnaissance, for a radio electronic warfare station; For fire control machines for artillery, for air defense control vehicles.

    - With what enterprises of the Concern are close cooperation relations established?

    - In matters of supply of materials and services, we closely cooperate with the Concern's enterprises. For example, JSC "ChAZ" provides us with forgings, conducts heat treatment of parts with high-frequency currents. Castings and forgings are obtained from the Kurgan production site of "Tractor Plants". The instrument is supplied to us by OOO Remex from Cheboksary.

    Our SKB conducts joint work to create new models of military equipment with enterprises of OJSC UKBTM (Nizhny Tagil), OJSC SKBM (Kurgan); OJSC SKB PA (Kovrov), OAO NPP Rubin (Penza), OJSC Peleng (Minsk, Republic of Belarus) and others. So the geography of cooperation is solid.

    - Are other types of products produced at the production site of the Volgograd Tractor Plant, except special-purpose machinery?

    - Several years ago in Volgograd, indeed, civil engineering was produced, but as a result of reorganization and optimization measures, its production was transferred to other Concern enterprises: spare parts and spare parts for AGROMASH 90TG - in OAO Promtractor, irrigation systems - in ZAO Promtractor -Railway carriage".

    - Fizuli Velievich, for what would you praise the staff of VGTZ?

    - The company employs a well-coordinated professional team, capable of performing tasks in a high-quality and efficient manner, often without regard to personal time, overtime and on weekends.

    Each shop has its own reliable backbone. So, the test driver of the machine assembly shop Konstantin Slinkov, of those who truly loves his work, responsible, conscientious, he is indispensable in solving many problems. And this is in my 28 years. In the same workshop, the mechanic of mechanic assembly works Eugene Bychkov, who specializes in the most complex operation - the laying of an engine. The highest precision in the manufacture of parts is provided by a machine tool and manipulators programmer Yevgeny Neshkov. At the age of 25, already a high-quality specialist turner Nikolai Goncharov, behind him fixed the most responsible nomenclature.

    Venus Bedretdinova - the only woman who works as the head of the mechanical section. She organized the work so competently and professionally that her team invariably performs shift-daily assignments on time. On the site Bedretdinova full order in all production areas.

    Products of excellent quality are handled by the milling cutter Tatyana Bochkova and the trawler Irina Shishkina, both working in the manufacture of metal products. High professional and industrial discipline is distinguished by young specialists electric welder of manual welding Herman Vasilchenko and fitter of mechanical assembly works Mikhail Shuvaev, they are working on the assembly of BMD-4M cases.

    I want to highlight Vladimir Budayev, head of the design bureau of tests, reliability and repair documentation. Under the leadership of this purposeful, competent, initiative specialist, the staff of the bureau solves complex questions on the implementation of ROC under concluded contracts with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, conducts design support for the manufacture of prototypes of products, takes a direct part in preliminary and qualification tests.

    - What is the average age of employees in the company? Are there a lot of young people in the team?

    - The average age of workers in enterprises is 45 years, young people about a third of the total. Of course, I would like to change this ratio somewhat in favor of young specialists, so that the natural outflow of personnel occurs without prejudice to production, and the accumulated experience of old-timers is transferred into reliable hands. We're working on it now.

    - How is the interaction between production workers and military representatives? Is it difficult to achieve mutual understanding?

    - By and large, we have nothing to share. The task at us general: qualitatively and in time to deliver technics for the Airborne troops.

    - What are the production plans for 2017?


    - This year the enterprise will continue to fulfill the state defense order. The planned increase in production is two-fold. I am confident that the plans will be fulfilled.
