"Today, there are more than 260 factories operating in the machine-building complex of the capital, employing over 11.7 thousand specialists.

With the support of the city, the industry shows steady growth – by the end of 2023, the volume of production of equipment and machinery increased by more than a quarter. In particular, the production of metalworking machines has almost tripled, conveyors have doubled, and the manufacture of elevators has increased by 29.4%," Ovchinsky was quoted as saying by the press service of the DIPP.
