"Yuzhmormontazh" enterprise was founded on June 5, 1944, in accordance with the radiogram of the chief of Assembling-Renewing Department of the Black - Azov Seas. At the moment of its foundation it was called The Kherson Assembling-Renewing Sector, the main targets of the company being the renewal of the sea shipping branch destroyed by the war. The domestic engineering industry had been destroyed by the war and was in a recovery stage; therefore the country mostly imported crane equipment from "Babcock and Wilcox", "Washington", "Derrick-Hoist", "Weyli", "Marion" and others companies. Originally, the scope of works covered the Black Sea and Azov Sea ports, as well as the Dnieper river and Don river ports. Later, with the recovery of the country’s economy, specialists of the enterprise started performing works on the entire territory of the USSR – from the Sea of Japan to the Baltic Sea, from the Barents Sea to the Caspian Sea. As a result of the development of the international economic relations of the Soviet Union and the export supply of products of the domestic engineering industry, the works on crane assembly and reloading equipment were carried out far outside Kherson region – in Cuba, Vietnam, Yemen, Finland, Iran, Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Somalia and etc. Up to 80% of all portal cranes in Ukrainian ports, as well as the ports of other countries situated on the Caspian, Azov and Black Sea coasts, have been assembled by the specialists of the company "Yuzhmormontazh".
