The Legislative Assembly of Chelyabinsk region issued the Official Commendation to General Director of KONAR JSC, Valery Bondarenko, for a long and diligent service, high professionalism and active participation in the social and economic life of Traktorozavodsky district of Chelyabinsk. On these days, the district celebrates 83 years since its foundation.

The first own production facility of KONAR was organized over 20 years ago and currently remains effective in Traktorozavodsky district. Production of flanges, flange fasteners and pipeline components, one of the largest in the Russian Federation, was established here. The main facilities of KONAR Industrial Group locate in Stankomash Industrial Park now.

— After a glorious but regressive history of Soviet mechanical engineering, we are establishing new promising facilities in this field, – Valery Bondarenko noted. – Today in KONAR Industrial Group there are more than 15 companies including joint ventures with Russian and European partners. Last year, we started to arrange the center of mechanical-engineering competences in shipbuilding in Chelyabinsk. We established our own Research and Development Center with unique competences in critical engineering – design, production and testing of pipeline valves for aggressive environments. We have plans to launch new production facilities and directions in 2020.
