Ajax Systems opens the second plant in Kyiv and plans to create 1,000 new positions

Ajax Systems, a Ukrainian manufacturer of wireless security systems, has opened its second plant in Kyiv.

Now the company is hiring a staff of 150 people for a new location. Next year, it plans to increase the number of employees up to 1,000.

Scaling up production

The second plant of Ajax Systems is located on the left bank at 9 Boryspilska St., on the territory of the former Kyiv radio plant. The area of the facility is 1,865 m².

The company does not disclose the amount of investment in the new plant. The reason for opening the second location is the scaling-up of Ajax production.

“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,” commented Oleksandr Konotopskyi, CEO at Ajax Systems.

Plans for 2021

Currently, the new factory is focused on the production of DoorProtect and DoorProtect Plus detectors. Next year, the company plans to involve the second plant in the production of the entire product range. Thus, the two Ajax plants will work on the same projects.

“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,” said Bohdan Demchyshyn, Ajax Systems Chief Production Officer.

This year, Ajax plans to recruit 150 people for the new location. The following positions are available: pickers, packers, assemblers, test stand operators, REE assemblers, and quality inspectors.
