As of March 2, 2022, KVSZ has manufactured 30 passenger cars for UZ. In total, according to the supply contract, the enterprise must build 100 wagons for the railway operator. The agreement between the companies was concluded in June 2021. Since then, until the end of last year, KVSZ managed to manufacture and transfer 20 cars.

At the end of May, the prosecutor’s office seized a 25% stake in KVSZ, which belonged to the Austrian OW Capital Management GmbH, controlled by Stanislav Gamzalov, chairman of the board of directors of the Russian Steel Structures Plant. He is suspected of facilitating the purchase of parts for the construction of cars from enterprises from the Russian Federation at inflated prices in the presence of lower cost analogues of Ukrainian production.

KVBZ, in turn, stated that it denies the existence of schemes for withdrawing funds to the accounts of Russian enterprises and the facts of purchases at an inflated cost, and the mentioned owner of 25% of the shares has no influence on the operation of the enterprise.

At the end of 2021, KVSZ reduced the production of freight cars by 36.2% compared to 2020, to 1,001 units.
