"Aktubroentgen" is a private enterprise. Management of the enterprise

completed the commissioning of new production facilities, equipped with
the latest production equipment in several European countries, Canada
and Japan. Moreover, it should be noted that the commissioning
performed without interrupting the production cycle.
