Four years ago the enterprise “Izhmash” was in bankruptcy, in 2013 it was converted to the concern “Kalashnikov”, which came from private investors that has acquired 49% stake in the company, 51% remains with Rostec. So knows better than anyone about the prospects of the enterprise, the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov. In an interview with TASS, he unexpectedly announced a plan of restoration motorcycle production and recalled popular at the time, the bike IZH Planeta. This motorcycle is produced at Izhmash in the 60-ies of the last century, is now the factory motorcycles do not produce. Chemezov said that the challenge is not just to revive the production of motor vehicles, but also to bring it to a new level. This means that the produce collected is not outdated, but modern and competitive.
Rostec aims to produce mainly military products, but before the state Corporation, the task is to gradually increase the share of civilian goods in the background of the new rearmament program for the period until 2020, which implies the reduction of military procurement.
Sergey Chemezov admitted that he began to ride his father’s motorcycle IZH-49, in fact, a copy of the German DKW, but young broke it to pieces.
