The Memorandum was signed by Oleg Sienko, CEO of OJSC «Research and Production Corporation «URALVAGONZAVOD» and Peter Löscher, President and CEO of Siemens AG. This memorandum creates a solid foundation for mutually beneficial cooperation of the parties on implementation of the product lifecycle concept at UVZ enterprises. «Russia is a very important market for Siemens.
