Russian Railways interested in quality of Uralvagonzavod’s produce

Russian Railways Public Company expects to enhance the quality of Uralvagonzavod’s produce through both organizations’ joint effort. As it is, the quality of the Ural plant’s goods could still be worked on, President of Russian Railways Public Company Vladimir Yakunin announced at a briefing in Yekaterinburg, RIA Novosti says.

‘Today’s railway vehicles standards call for an entirely different quality level,’ he explained.

Yakunin said he would not like to give any specific examples, but the company was not at all happy with some of Uralvagonzavod’s vehicles.

‘We hope that our joint efforts will bring a result. On our part, we’ll provide all the support necessary for the introduction of new ways of non-destructive large-size casting control; Uralvagonzavod, in its turn, should launch a quality enhancement program. Also, Sverdlovsk Region authorities need to make sure the plant’s investment programs receive some aid. It is essential for Russian Railways to keep Uralvagonzavod working and to keep it working effectively not only in terms of quantity but also in terms of quality,’ Yakunin noted.
