Ajax Systems, a Ukrainian manufacturer of wireless security systems, opened the second production plant in Kyiv. According to Ajax’s CEO Olexandr Konotopskyi, the company plans to scale its business next year therefore the production site should be expanded.
“Next year, we plan to double our business, so we need one more production site. We decided to open it at Boryspilska, as it already has a large production cluster. This location will also allow us to attract more employees from the Left Bank and build a large production team faster,” says Konotopskyi.
This year, Ajax plans to recruit 150 people for the new location with a subsequent increase to 1,000 people.
“We’ve launched 24/7 testing, gathering and assembling, quality control and packaging at the Boryspilska plant. In the future, we plan to switch all the sites to the 24/7 schedule,’ says Bohdan Demchyshyn, Ajax Systems Chief Production Office.
Previous month Ajax Systems won the “Intruder Product of the Year 2020” category in the prestigious PSI Premier Awards 2020.
The company delivers over 2 million devices worldwide and all of them are developed, assembled, and tested in Kyiv. Ajax’s success story proves the vibrant Ukrainian startup ecosystem, talented entrepreneurs and availability of human resources.
