They still are. Even that UAV on the pictures, is in god knows what phase of development. And that project is probably led by EDePro, not Yugoimport. I don't deny that they have few good projects (Nora B52, Lazar 3, modernization of BOV's), but they also have many more which are nothing more than dumb ideas, bad photoshop, or at most mockups.so Proka is Yugoimport no longer a "mostly photoshop company"?
The implementation of two investment projects is underway: the first relates to the construction of a factory for rocket motor chambers production, which enables conditions for the serial production of missile systems, while the second concerns the construction of plant for primers production. The total value of these two projects amounts to 19.4 million euros.
In early 2016, the works on the construction of a new plant for rocket motor chambers production have been completed covering the area of 2,800m2. The plant was built on the site of the former Tool factory, which was destroyed in NATO bombing in 1999. The new building is equipped with the flow forming machines, being the “core” of this technology. The entire investment is financed from our own resources and the value of the first phase is estimated at 9.4 million euros. The construction of this facility will create conditions for renewal and modernization of the production resources for Krušik missile program, as well as creation of brand new products in this domain. This is the only factory of its kind in the region.
In cooperation with the Public Enterprise Jugoimport SDPR we launched the implementation of an investment project to build a new primers plant, or to expand the capacity of the factory for initial devices and detonators. The entire quantity of produced primers will be delivered to companies belonging to the OIS (Defence Industry of Serbia) group, thereby replacing the import of these products. The value of this investment in the first phase amounts to 10 million euros.
Completion of these plants with all the envisaged equipment will enable employment of 190 new workers. The number of employees is conditioned by the choice of modern technology and highly productive and automated equipment.
Company expects that this will rise the total production to the amount of 350 million rounds of ammunition, worth around 120 million of dollars. Interesting fact is that Prvi Partizan is a strategic partner of FN Herstal, and each year PPU sells them ammunition worth around 10 million of euros. Also PPU was the third largest exporter of ammunition on the US market in 2016.The factory`s general manager, Dobrosav Andric, said that all the dangerous operations related to testing and packing of ammunition would be performed in the facility, thereby moving the operations out of the city. “The construction should start in late February or early March 2017. The funds which should be set aside for the construction of the facility amount to around EUR 12m. Considering the fact that the state has regulated the question of public interest by law, the decision has been made to start building a factory for finishing and packing ammunition on an area of 75 hectares in Bela Zemlja. The initial idea was to move all the dangerous operations out of the city`s center”, Andric said. Prvi Partizan`s operating success has grown in the past six years and, in 2015, the production reached 260 million units with investments and a profit of EUR 10m. The 2016 analysis has been performed and the parameters indicate that the year would be record-setting, with 300 million units produced and a profit of EUR 12m.
