The first workshop dedicated to the repair and production of armoured vehicles has commenced operations in Ukraine as part of a joint venture between the German defence giant Rheinmetall and the Ukrainian defence conglomerate "Ukroboronprom". The primary aim of this enterprise is the maintenance and production of military equipment based on German models, according to the Ministry of Strategic Industries of Ukraine.

Ukrainian officials have highlighted that the launch of this workshop will expedite the repair and return of German-made combat vehicles to the frontlines and, over time, enable the production of new equipment for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"The opening of the first joint service centre with Rheinmetall in Ukraine is critically important for strengthening our defence capabilities. This will allow us to ensure the swift repair and maintenance of German equipment directly on Ukrainian soil, significantly enhancing the effectiveness of our Armed Forces. We are grateful to our German partners for their trust and support, which enable us to confidently move towards victory and integrate into the European collective security system," said Deputy Defence Minister of Ukraine, Dmytro Klimentov.

It is noteworthy that the joint production site of Rheinmetall and "Ukroboronprom" is staffed by Ukrainian specialists, with technical oversight provided by representatives of the German partner.

The establishment of this joint repair facility aligns with Rheinmetall's plans to enter the Ukrainian market. The company intends to set up at least four plants in Ukraine to produce shells, military equipment, gunpowder, and anti-aircraft weapons. This was announced by Rheinmetall CEO Armin Papperger during the company's 2023 performance presentation in March.

"Ukraine is now a crucial partner for us. We see a potential market size of 2-3 billion euros per year," said Armin Papperger at the time.

Additionally, it should be noted that The Gaze reported that Rheinmetall also began constructing a new €63 million plant in Hungary in April.
