Canadian Company Signs MOU with UKRAINE for Artillery Barrel Industrial Base

Representatives of Ukraine and Canada signed an MOU on June 19th, 2024 at Eurosatory in Paris, France.

This strategic partnership, signed by Paradigm Shift Technologies Inc. of Toronto and ENMEK, the company operated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine,  will be of incredible value to support ENMEK. ENMEK just signed a deal with KNDS to establish an MRO center for CAESER Artillery systems and is currently responsible for producing spare parts for Howitzers, according to the French Ministry of Armed Forces. 

"This significant milestone marks the launch of our strategic technology integration plans in Ukraine, expands our international presence, and strengthens the collaborative bonds between Canada and Ukraine. It aligns with our goal to support the Ukrainian industry in producing advanced EPVD®-coated artillery and other barrels. This partnership offers a unique opportunity for our business and the advancement of innovative production in Ukraine."

- Dr. Gennady Yumshtyk, CEO, Paradigm Shift Technologies Inc.
