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.
