SC “UkrOboronProm” will manufacture a new batch of dozens armored vehicles “Dozor-B” for Ukrainian army due to SE “Lviv Armored Plant” funding under the state defense order. Production capacities and technological process – prepared in 2016 – allow mass production of “Dozor-B.”

“Lviv Armored Plant” funding became possible due to operational decisions of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov, Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Head of Lviv Regional Administration Oleg Synyutka. On Friday, January 27, the meeting of the National Security Council was held, and on Monday the enterprise received order confirmation.

Lviv enterprise team – nearly 900 employees – is 100% loaded with work and has employment security in 2017. This allows avoiding forced leave and loading capacities of “Lviv Armored Plant.”
