Rostec ; DD ("Russian: Ростех - Rostekh), formerly Rostekhnologii ("Russian: Ростехнологии) is a Russian "state corporation established in late 2007 to promote development, production and export of hi-tech industrial products for civil and defense sectors. It brings together about 700 entities which form 14 holding companies: eleven holding companies operate in the defense-industry complex and three are involved in civil sectors. Rostec’s organizations are located in 60 constituents of the Russian Federation and supply goods to over 70 countries worldwide.[3]

Rostec was founded in 2007 as so called ""state corporation", a "type of legal entity in Russia. The state corporation is established by equity contribution made by the "Russian Federation. The organization is headed by "Sergey Chemezov.[4] Its headquarters are located in "Moscow.

The corporation consolidates strategically important companies, many of which are bankrupt or near bankrupt, with the ultimate goal of capitalizing them and bringing them to an IPO.[5]



Full name in the Russian language is Государственная корпорация по содействию разработке, производству и экспорту высокотехнологичной промышленной продукции «Ростех». Short name in the Russian language is Госкорпорация Ростех. Full name in the English language is State Corporation for Assistance to Development, Production and Export of Advanced Technology Industrial Product «Rostec». Short name in the English language is Rostec Corporation. Rostec was known as Rostekhnologii until December 2012.


On November 23, 2007, President "Vladimir Putin endorsed the federal law[6][7] to establish Rostekhnologii, a state corporation, passed by the "State Duma on November 9.[8][9] The state contributed 443 entities to the corporation’s capital.[10] Their total loss was RUR630 billion; 30% of such enterprises were in pre-crisis and crisis condition, 28 entities in bankruptcy proceedings, 17 had no business operations, and 27 had lost part of their assets or faced a material risk of such loss. Executives of some companies included in Rostec were in conflict with each other.[11] At the time Rosoboronprom, a company eventually merged with Rostechnologii, acquired the controlling interest in VSMPO-AVISMA in 2006, the ongoing conflict between the shareholders exposed it to crisis. In October 2005, the Federal Financial Market Service (FFMS) suspended trades in common shares on the "RTS Exchange and "MICEX.[12]

In 2008, "Pirelli and Rostechnologii signed[13] the Memorandum on the principal conditions of establishing a JV to manufacture tyres for motorcars and trucks. Initially, the parties intended to commence construction of a special-purpose plant in Togliatti; however, the initial plan was revised.[14] In 2011, it was decided to launch production at the facilities of Sibur Holding[15] from which the partners purchased Kirovsky and Voronezhsky Tyre Plants. Total value of the transferred assets was €222 million. Currently, the parties are upgrading the production facilities. In January 2013, Voronezhsky Tyre Plant launched a new production line.[16] By 2015, the joint venture will manufacture 10.5 motocar and light truck tyres,[16] with the production volume reaching €500 million.[17]

In February 2008, JSC "AvtoVAZ and French vehicle manufacturer "Renault with an extensive input from Rostec signed an agreement on strategic partnership. The agreement launched a full-scale restructuration of the domestic vehicle manufacturer: "Renault representatives were included in the top-management bodies of "AvtoVAZ and its shares were distributed among the members of the consortium. The French company acquired a blocking stake in "AvtoVAZ of 25% plus one share. In 2009, "Renault and "AvtoVAZ signed an additional agreement under which "Renault made an asset contribution, including the transfer of technologies, production equipment and expertise valued at €240 million. The funds were allocated to modernization of AvtoVAZ’s production line and its upgrading to manufacture "Renault and "Nissan cars and new "Lada models developed on the basis of foreign innovative technologies. This will allow "AvtoVAZ to recover profitability and maintain the leading positions of "Lada, "Renault and "Nissan brands on the Russian market. Since 2011, "Renault-Nissan were negotiating buyout of the majority stake in "AvtoVAZ with company’s co-owners Rostec and "Troika Dialog. In May 2012, the parties reached a preliminary agreement to set up a joint venture to hold 74.5% shares in "AvtoVAZ. They also agreed that "Renault-Nissan Alliance would own 67.13% of shares. Their arrangements were legally executed in December 2012.[18] Thus, "Renault-Nissan and Rostec will contribute their interests in the plant (28%, 98% and 25%) to the joint venture which will further acquire 24.14% of shares owned by "Troika Dialog. The actual stake of "Renault-Nissan in "AvtoVAZ will be 50.1% and Rostec’s stake 24.5% which is a blocking stake for the plant (according to historical distribution of "AvtoVAZ share capital, only 94% of shares are actual voting shares, rather than 100%).[18]

In 2006, "VSMPO-AVISMA agreed with "Boeing[19] to set up a joint venture for machine processing of forgings for "Boeing 787 Dreamliner[20] and Russian-made aircraft. The parties signed the relevant agreement in 2007. It took two years to put up a new plant, employ and train personnel and install production equipment. In 2009, the new enterprise was launched as world’s most sophisticated production plant set up by Rostec and Ural Boeing Manufacturing. In October 2012, "VSMPO-AVISMA and "Boeing signed a memorandum to expand production capacity of Ural Boeing Manufacturing.[21] The joint venture purchased four new machines which are scheduled to be installed in 2013. US$12 million will be additionally invested in the development.[22] The partners develop new titanium alloys and technologies for aircraft engineering, in particular, «Ti5553»[23] designed to reduce the aircraft weight.[22][24][25]

In July 2008, Rostec signed an agreement with "Metalloinvest to set up a joint venture to develop the Udokan copper reserve in the "Chita Oblast,[26] which resources are evaluated at 20 million tons of copper and 1.3 billion tons of ore or 30% of total Russia’s known reserves. In September 2008, Mikhailovsky Mining and Processing Enterprise, a part of Metalloinvest, won the tender for reserve development. A of mid-2012, the parties were performing preliminary work to commence the reserve development in Udokan. Copper production is scheduled to begin no later than June 2014.[27]

November 11, 2008, Rostec acquired 25.1% of shares in WiMAX Holding Ltd, a major shareholder of "Scartel, a WiMAX-Yota operator.

In November 2009, Rostec and "Thales signed a memorandum on partnership and cooperation in electronic systems for the defence and airspace industries. The document regulates cooperation of two companies to share and use hi-tech developments in both defence and civil sectors.[28] In 2010, the parties agreed to expand their joint efforts and signed an additional cooperation agreement which contemplated establishment of a joint venture for development, manufacturing and post-sales support in air traffic management and integrated modular avionics for civil aviation. This joint venture was set up at the premises of Vologda Optical and Mechanical Plant focused on licensed production of thermal imagers Catherine FC and Catherine XP and long-range multi-function binoculars Sophie-MF.[29]

In 2010, "Russian Helicopters, a part of Rostechnologii, reached an agreement with "AgustaWestland, a part of "Finmeccanica, to set up JV JSC HeliVert to assemble AW139 helicopters[30] at a new plant located in the village of "Tomilino, Moscow Region.[31] Russian-made AW139 made its first flight on December 19.[32][33] In 2012, the parties also decided to expand their cooperation and signed a preliminary framework agreement on joint development, manufacture and distribution of a 2.5 ton state-of-the-art one-engine helicopter.[34]

The corporation has signed cooperation agreements with such organizations as "UAC, "USC,[35] "RZhD,[36] "Aeroflot,[37] "Lukoil,[38] "Gazprom[39] and others.

As of September 2012, the corporation has entered into agreements with 31 regions and opened its representative offices in 26 constituents of the Russian Federation.

2012 rebranding[edit]

Corporate rebranding was announced December 21, 2012.[42] The corporation changed its name, logo and slogan. Rostechnologii was renamed Rostec. A new logo features an open square symbolizing a window to the world and a focus frame. It reflects philosophy of the corporate slogan “Partner in Development”.[28] The corporation also launched a new website in six languages (Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese). The languages were selected with a view to those countries and regions which emerge as the corporation’s largest customers.[42] “Communications and brand management increasingly affect the value-added of products,” Sergey Chemezov, Rostec’s CEO, said. “We need the international brand to commit global technology and financial leaders, successfully pursue corporate strategy and enhance corporation’s capitalization”.[42] According to The "Wall Street Journal, rebranding[28] is designed to make the corporation more open.[28] The corporate rebranding project was implemented by Apostle, a strategic communications center, and "Ilya Oskolkov- Tsentsiper, founder and co-owner of Winter, a UK agency. Graphic design was developed under supervision of Hazel Macmillan[43] (British Airways is among her latest projects.) The website was developed by SomeOneElse, a UK-based agency which projects include HSBC, Land Rover and BBC. The corporation spent $1.5 million for rebranding.[28]
