According to the source, a pilot lot of elevators has been exported to Ukraine. These elevators will also be sold on the domestic market, in Russia and Azerbaijan, the source added.

Mogilevliftmash makes a wide range of passenger elevators (400-1,000 kg), cargo elevators (100-5,000 kg), cargo-passenger, hospital and specific elevators. Besides, the enterprise rolls out equipment and components for replacement and modernisation.
In January-September 2007 Mogilevliftmash produced BYR 191.5 billion worth of goods, or 25.4% up on the year. Consumer goods output rose by 8.2.
Mogilevliftmash produced 4,900 units of elevating equipment of different modifications, the source specified.
The company boosted elevator exports by 30% to a total of $75.7 million.
The source attributes the rise in export and production volumes to the upgrade of production facilities.
The large-scale facility retooling campaign not only facilitated a surge in production and exports, but also made it possible to expand the product range and launch new elevator series. New products account for 50.3% of the range.
