In January-August, 2017, enterprises of manufacturing industries shipped goods of their own production and performed works by 27% more compared to the same period in 2016. The growth of this indicator is mainly related to the increase in shipments at such enterprises as OJSC 325 ARZ (9 times), Polymerprom (1.3 times), PJSC Tagmet (1.2 times) and several others.

In 2013, a workshop was opened for the production of couplings for casing and tubing. Today it is one of the leading innovative enterprises of Taganrog.
Currently, large-scale investment projects are being implemented in the city.

The production capacity of the first stage will be 600 thousand radiators per year with the potential for increasing the output to 1.2 million radiators per year. The products are aimed at the market of the customs union. In 2017, an application was approved for repayment of interest on loans in the amount of 22 million rubles from the regional budget.
