First Class Journal (FCJ): Mr. Beklemishev, how many years has the company been operating in the market of Kazakhstan?


Pavel Beklemishev, General Director, JSC JV Byelkamit: A decision on construction of the Hydromash plant in Almaty for production of combat subwater missiles (Shkval and Eagle) was made in 1972. The joint Kazakh-American-Italian enterprise BYELKAMIT was established on the base of Hydromash Machine Building plant in 1995 within the framework inter-governmental Kazakhstani-American program Joint reduction of threat. Since then the plant has switched to manufacturing of non combatant products.

First consignment of new products was manufactured in 1996: cryogenic capacities for storage of liquefied gases (argon, nitrogen and oxygen). Over 300 units of such capacities were exported to West Europe. In 1996 Byelkamit received an international certificate ASME for projection and designing of vessels working under pressure with U and U2 stamps put on them. JSC JV Byelkamit was the first in Kazakhstan to receive a certificate of compliance with quality management system (ISO 9001:1994 standard) given by  international agency BVQI.
