Organization & Management

    BelMag is a single entity and a united team of progressive-minded professionals.

    The very name of the company — AO NPO BelMag — already defines it as R&D and production center since «NPO» stands for «scientific-production association». In order to develop new designs considering all technical capabilities and therefore to avoid long delays between the start of development and serial production, BelMag, as many other such facilities, decided to consolidate research and production activities into a single entity.

    More than 300 employees work together to build on the success of BelMag: there are engineering, research and development specialists,
    3 professors, 7 PhD and 2 Research doctorates.

    Moreover, BelMag works closely with Nosov Magnitogorsk and Bauman Moscow state technical universities.
