in Addition to PJSC "Zaporozhtransformator" in the tender was attended by the Chinese and Russian manufacturers of transformer equipment, but the best quote and the fact that PJSC "ZTR" has established itself on the Georgian market as a manufacturer of high-quality and reliable equipment, were decisive when choosing a Supplier.
