About the Company

We create movement on Earth and in Space!

Joint Stock Company Ust-Katav car-building plant (JSC UKCP) was founded on the basis of a city-forming factory of defense significance, which was a tram car-building factory in Ust-Katav town. 

JSC UKCP was mainly founded by a rocket and space company named Joint Stock Company «United Rocket Space Corporation» (JSC URSC) to diversify civil product manufacturing. A 100% stake in JSC UKCP is owned by the State Space Corporation Roscosmos.
