Conquering off-road became possible owing to legendary vehicles — two-link crawler conveyors DT-30P proudly carrying the name of Vityaz.
During winter snowstorms, spring thaw, and autumn mud seasons… Vityaz vehicles came to Ozernovskiy regularly, bringing necessary goods to the remote fishing village. A grocery store was opened in the capital of Kamchatka’s salmon fishery.
The founder of Vityaz-Avto, LLC,
Igor Vladimirovich Redkin:
Being engaged in transportation business I often visited Ozernovskiy Village, where I became interested in fishery. I liked it right away: teamwork, short payback period, good prospects.
But to do this business, one had to have fish-processing capacities, which I didn’t. The management of RKZ-55 — Ozernovskiy Fish Cannery Plant — helped and leased it to me. It was difficult times, but people were lavish with help and I’m grateful to them.
Leasing of the fish processing department of RKZ-55
The administration of Ozernovskiy Settlement cooperated with an energetic businessman and issued quotas on capture of sockeye salmon and other pacific salmons in the Ozernaya River.
