The company "Sukhoi" has denied the transfer of production of aircraft from Komsomolsk to China

On Friday, Russian media reported that Sukhoi could move aircraft production from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to China.

According to Alexander Levintal, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Khabarovsk Territory for Economic Affairs, at a meeting of the regional authorities with the management of Sukhoi, this is due to the fact that the company lacks "the necessary labor force of the required qualifications."

The Sukhoi aircraft building company denied this information.

“Sukhoi was surprised to learn from the media about plans to transfer production from its branch in Komsomolsk-on-Amur to China. The company never had and never will have such plans, ”the company said in a press release.

The press service of the plant also noted that the company plans to expand production by increasing the production of aircraft, as a result of which new high-tech jobs will be created.

The Komsomolsk-on-Amur aircraft plant named after Gagarin is a branch of OJSC Sukhoi Company. It manufactures Su-27 fighters. And since 2003 it has been participating in the program of creating a new regional aircraft "Superjet-100".
