NIZHNY TAGIL. September 11. /TASS/. Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey’s 2014 order book exceeded its 2012 portfolio by about two times, a representative of the manufacturer said at the Russia Arms Expo 2015 arms show on Friday.
"Based on the requests received, nine contracts were signed with foreign customers in 2014. As of late 2014, the overall export order book was virtually twice as large as that in 2012," the Almaz-Antey representative said.
According to him, Almaz-Antey received 43 requests for military hardware from 12 countries in 2014. The manufacturer is entitled by law to export combat hardware independently. "In all, the consortium was fulfilling 28 contracts for military hardware and services and four contracts for foreign personnel training in 2014," the Almaz-Antey employee added.
Thirteen new items were added to the list of weapon systems that Almaz-Antey exported last year.
"The number of Almaz-Antey-developed and -made export products is growing continuously. Thirteen advanced products were cleared for export in 2014," the manufacturer’s representative said, adding that he was not authorized to name the products.
Six countries requested improvements in their aftersales servicing facilities, and their requests are being fulfilled on schedule.
