Uralvagonzavod employees given best defense workers award

In a December 12 ceremony, five employees of Uralvagonzavod Scientific and Production Corp. were recognized as the Sverdlovsk region's best young workers employed in the Russian defense industry.

Sverdlovsk Region Governor Evengy Kuivashev served as coordinator for the ceremony, where each of the five employees received a diploma commemorating their accomplishment, according to Ural Business Consulting.

The five young employees came from varying Uralvagonzavod plants, including the corporation's head plant, Plant 9, the Kamensk-Uralsky Foundry and Uralcryomash.

The best young defense employees contest was created by the Sverdlovsk region's division of the Union of the Russian Machine-Builders and Sverdlovsk Region Union of Defense Industry Enterprises. This is the award ceremony's first year, but officials are encouraged that the awards program will become a regular part of defense industry employees' support system, Ural Business Consulting reports.
