Andrey Petrichko, CEO of Aviaagregat, a part of Technodinamika Holding company, will take a position at the parent entity of the Holding company. He will be engaged in building the Landing Gear Division.
The responsibility of the former head of the plant will include preparing the landing gear product portfolio, managing the product life cycle, development, launch into production, and after-sales services. In addition, his area of responsibility will include product sales and international cooperation projects.
"During his tenure as the head of the enterprise, Andrey Petrichko brought the Samara-based plant to a new level of profitability and implemented a number of important projects on manufacturing new products," said Maxim Kuzyuk, CEO of Technodinamika. "We greatly appreciate his work at the enterprise. In his new role, he will be responsible for the development of the product portfolio and will continue to actively collaborate with the plant."
In July 2012, when Andrey Petrichko was appointed CEO, Aviaagregat was in a difficult financial position, despite having a sufficiently large order book. The enterprise had 1.5 month wage arrears, tax arrears and overdue extrabudgetary payables. In this situation, the banks ceased to extend loans, and the enterprise faced a cash gap of RUB 250 million. This created a real danger of suspending the production lines.
Andrey Petrichko managed to get the plant out of this situation. For 2014, the profit of the enterprise was about RUB 250 million, which is five times greater than the results of the previous year.
"I think that the main victory was the formation of a team able to achieve the goals set by the shareholders. This is the team that can transform the enterprise," said Andrey Petrichko. "We significantly optimized our costs, launched key infrastructure projects to develop the enterprise and made our plant one of the best employers in Samara Region while proving in practice our ability by fulfilling a number of new and complex orders."
During Andrey Petrichko's leadership, the company reorganized its shops and reduced the number of management levels to three. The enterprise improved labor conditions while increasing the requirements to qualifications and performance of its workers. It conducted systemic work with Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, which will allow to transfer to Russia the production of landing gear components for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and ensure that the products meet the best world's standards. For the first time in Russia, a number of processes have been certified to NADCAP requirements.
Particular attention is paid to social programs and collaboration with regional authorities. The enterprise is successfully implementing its development and training program.
Pavel Mayorov, who will replace Andrey Petrichko as CEO of the Samara-based enterprise of Technodinamika, is tasked to ensure the further development of the production site. First of all, he intends to focus on addressing such tasks as the unconditional compliance with time frames for product deliveries, developing the quality management system, improving labor productivity and efficiency of fixed assets.
