Perm Engine Company’s deputy managing director for economics and finance DmitryOvsyannikov:

“Choosing NOMOS Bank as one of our partners was easy thanks to the flexible lending policy they offered us, which is ideal for our company. The list of loan products offered by NOMOS Bank is quite broad. And the Perm Engine Company is unquestionably interested in new financial solutions offered by NOMOS Bank.

Our partnership is developing in the area of investment into production. The operational decision by NOMOS Bank to offer limited credit to replenish Perm Engine Company’s working capital reflects positively on the successful implementation of their plans. And I can look confidently toward long-term cooperation.”
