The management tasks also include obtaining of patents on their designs and presentation thereof at conventions and other major industry events with a view to maintain the plant’s reputation as the leader in technology of precious metals production industries in Russia and in the world.

 “The development strategy of EZOCM for the next few years implies increased sales of finished high-technology products. The science- and technology-related work is exactly what will make it possible for us to be in the market, to meet the customers’ requirements and to keep up with the competition. For the purpose of such strengthening the Science and Technology Department has been created”, said Alexander Andreev, General Director of EZOCM JSC.
