“Over these past years, the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol has made significant progress, strengthening its potential and becoming a modern technology-intensive research and production facility. Today it is rightly considered one of the acknowledged leaders in the production of unique anti-aircraft defence tools as well as civilian products.
It is important that you work hard and with dedication, daringly implementing innovative ideas and developments, executing promising projects and making your substantial contribution to the development of the Russian economy, defence industry and boosting the Armed Forces’ combat capability. Of course, it is encouraging to see that the current team is committed to continuing the wonderful traditions established by generations of former workers.”
