The post-war period challenged the company staff to master and produce products of the much higher quality for application in the state-of-the-art aircraft models, including jet aircraft.

Under the guidance of V.I. Dobatkin, a famous scientist, Doctor of Engineering, the company had developed the process and mastered production of large ingots by continuous casting. The first Russian hollow sections, thin-walled tubes and large-size die forgings were produced at VSMPO.

Development of aerospace equipment and foundation of the powerful Russian submarine navy required application of the new materials providing wider capabilities and meeting strict requirements for operational performance. TITANIUM was one of such materials.
