Modern Times

Kharkiv Instrument-Making Plant named after. T. H. Shevchenko is a state-owned enterprise, which is a part of the State Concern UkrOboronProm. The plant produces high precision electronic devices for civil and military production. Now, in wartime, the activity of the plant is more closely connected with the military direction. However, the main specialization of the plant, both in civilian and military instrument-making, remains unchanged – the development and production of high-level electronics.


Now we are working hard to become a dynamically developing enterprise that has a modern, innovative production and holds strong positions in the markets of military and civilian products in Ukraine, Asia and NATO countries. This will be achieved thanks to the modernization of production, automation of processes and coordinated work of the team of professionals, for which comfortable working, creativity and rest conditions are created.

We make Ukraine strong!
