As it became known, at the end of last week in Shadrinsk Chelyabinsk flew to a potential buyer of the plant helicopter. Meanwhile, the company is in a very sad state - accumulated huge debts to Raiffeisenbank, which credited the construction contractors and workers. According to the most pessimistic forecasts, ShZMKv may soon stop working altogether. Details - in our material.

The situation on the Shadrinsk plant of metal constructions deteriorating day by day, tell sources familiar with the situation at the enterprise. Back in April, the situation was discussed at the meeting of the crisis management team of the Department of Industry, Transport, Communications and Energy of the Kurgan region. Presenting the report on the activities SHZMK, its executive director Alexei Kazantsev then admitted the main problem is the financing of the enterprise. The plant is trying atattract investors, negotiating, but accumulated large debts.

"If we have 1.3 billion rubles, we will reach break-even mode, - said Kazantsev. - In the state in which the company is now, it can not work. " In response, the Acting Deputy Governor - Director of the Department of Industry Vasily Begma stated that the authorities are willing to help the plant, "the main thing - to prevent the bankruptcy proceedings." Since, as is apparent today, the situation at the plant only gets worse.

Thus, according to sources, July workday naShadrinskom metalworks factory cut: work will be 7 hours 4 days a week. And reduce the staff of the enterprise.

"Reductions are now - at 30% in each unit. People are asked to write a statement of resignation at his own request, or threaten to lay off without pay - Article. By September, planning to leave only 80 people "- say our interlocutors. In addition, according to some reports, since June SHZMK salary of employees will be reduced - by 25%.

The factory management refuses to give their comments etc.about the situation: with the CEO SHZMK Korney Gibert the receptionist refused to join, noting that the comments will be given only to the chief of the Personnel Management. But could not talk to her because she "does not want to talk," said the receptionist.

Meanwhile, information on the situation on shared chairman of Kurgan regional organization of trade union of workers of automobile and Vasily Bobrov. "Officially, no orders to reduce the people of the day, no salaries, - he stressed. - However, the situation at the plant is extremely complex. Some people now write their own statements and dismissed. And what will happen next is unknown ".

Beavers said that, according to SHZMK employees, the company is not fully mastered the power, especially in the galvanizing of steel structures. "The workers say that for this it is necessary to invest about 100 million rubles, but the money is not allocated," - he said.

the plant itself thus has huge debts. "We're trying to save the plant, are in talks with the Department of Industry, Acting Governor - racesCasal Vasily Bobrov. - There is already a draft agreement on social and economic partnership "plant - the Department of Industry - trade unions", it must approve the Acting Governor Alexei Kokorin. So far this has not happened, but we really hope so. "

"Former customers refuse further cooperation, because the company breaks the terms of orders, its management is not going to negotiate, and not even allowed themselves to customers SHZMK territory", - explained it our interlocutors. Part postavschikovvzyskivaet their money Shadrinsk plant through the courts. So, this year the two companies have already managed to win process: LLC "Salavatmetall" collection made with SHZMK more than 2.3 million rubles (factory passed "Salavatmetallu" metal galvanizing, but not paid in full), and OOO "Prostroyenergo" - more than 8 9 million rubles (SHZMK held at the company's 7 million rubles).
