Overview

Status: Active

Parent: Open joint stock company Nizhny Novgorod Machine-building Plant

State‐controlled Almaz‐Antey is Russia's largest defence industrial concern. It is the holding company that sits above the country's principal industrial assets in the field of ground‐ and sea‐based air defence systems. The company was created in 2002 by presidential decree through the merger of Almaz and NPO Antey. It expanded in 2007 as additional enterprises were brought under the aegis of the group, thus mirroring the state‐driven consolidation that took place elsewhere in the Russian military industrial complex at this time. It is formed of around 50 core companies.
