August 19, 2020 has become a sad date for our company and country. At the age of 101, Boris Paton, a renowned scientist and inventor, died. His researches made enabled using the electric welding in space, under water, and also to use this method during surgical operations. Boris Paton headed the Electric Welding Institute, which is a long-term partner of OKOndt. Many conferences on non-destructive testing have been organized, joint projects have been handled, which OKOndt has provided with technologies and equipment for non-destructive testing. This is an irreparable personal and professional loss.

We grieve together with relatives and friends.
