The head of the "Promtechservice" company is general manager Valery Kulikchan.

-  Mr. Valery Kulikchan, what is the determining success factor of the "Promtechservice" company?

- One of the most important factors is our personnel. All our employees mainly came from Rosatom companies, and our young specialists are from the leading technical universities of our country. All of them have a one or two university degrees and at least one of the degrees is technical. They are mechanical engineers, physicists, electronic designers, technologists and systems engineers, programmers, biophysics, etc. Many know several languages and​ took a variety of specialized courses and trainings with manufacturing companies. We pay great attention to the level and quality of professional training of our specialists, because many things depend on their competence. We always strive to give our customers not just the equipment, but development outlook, as well as optimize their expenses in anticipation of the further growth and technological advance.

- In addition to the excellent team of professionals, what also helps to achieve success?

- We are always trying to conduct our business focusing on customer needs. Efficiency of each component is constantly analyzed and optimal solution for each task is found. The company manpower is small, but the highest efficiency of each division allows to solve any problems. Sometimes we hear behind our back that the company will not pull this or that project, but in practice we have proved again and again that all tasks we faced were completed. The company knows in practice the meaning of a federal program, acceptance objects, objects of particular importance, a public order and orders the Ministry of Defense. As a rule, when such projects are executed, there is by definition no right to make a mistake. This experience simultaneously motivates and hardens. As the saying goes: “If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen.”

To fully solve the customer’s task, "Promtechservice" has a license for working with information constituting a state secret. Of course, we have the certificate ISO 9001: 2008, IDT - supplying high-tech professional equipment in compliance with GOST ISO 9001-2011.

"Promtechservice" has all the necessary material, technical and intellectual resources for warranty and post-warranty equipment maintenance and monitoring of technological processes.

Having obtained direct contact with most manufacturers, we can offer equipment at manufacturer’s prices, respond quickly to changes in the range of manufactured instruments and fully resolve any issues arising during operation of the equipment.

- What are the competitive advantages of your company?

- Our main advantages are derived from the goals and objectives that we set before ourselves. First, it is the intention to give each customer and his task as much attention as if full strength of the company is aimed at solving only his problem. We are trying to be fully involved in technical specification and to search for the best technical and economic solution. Of course, after the end of a project the company keeps in touch with customers, helps with emerging issues, improves, updates, maintains and does everything necessary so that customers achieved all their goals.

Second, basing on long-term experience working with manufacturers from Europe, America, Britain, Japan, Korea and China, our company offers its customers excellent prices and fast delivery Third, it is greater flexibility directed to customer interests. This applies especially to contractual relationship.

Customers can have very different conditions; as they are mostly state enterprises, we have to find mutual solutions when dealing with funding delays, term changing, etc. This is particularly true for projects developed in the context of special state programs. Sometimes we are not talking about profitability. It is more important to implement a national project in time. Losses in such cases are more than compensated by appreciation of involvement in the solution of hard and important tasks. And patriotic feelings also play an important role.

- You have a lot of awards, which are the most valuable for you?

- Yes, our company has many awards, among them the diploma of the winner of the international award "Best Taxpayer of 2011 and 2014". "Promtechservice" won the "Elite of national economy" international award and the most important Russian award "The financial and economic Olympus". We won the bronze medal in the Russian contest of 100 best enterprises and organizations of 2012 in the nomination "The best company in the distribution of equipment". In 2013 our work has been awarded a federal certificate "Russian Leader of 2013" and "The Best Company of 2013". In 2014 "Promtechservice" won the Russian award "National Quality Brand 2014".
