Rheinmetall Ukrainian Defense Industry LLC

About us
Rheinmetall Ukrainian Defense Industry LLC was established as a joint venture company by Ukraine’s state-owned Ukrainian Defense Industry JSC (UDI, the former Ukroboronprom) and Rheinmetall in Kyiv, and has  been operating since 18 October 2023. The company is jointly owned by Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH, with a 51% stake, and UDI, which holds the remaining 49%.

First announced in May 2023, cooperation between Rheinmetall and the Ukrainian defence sector is intended to strengthen Ukraine’s domestic defence industry and, ultimately, its national security. The plan calls for creating joint defence industry capabilities in Ukraine.
Products & services
Rheinmetall Ukrainian Defense Industry is active in the fields of service and maintenance as well as assembly, production and development of military vehicles, and will initially operate solely on Ukrainian sovereign territory. 

Service and maintenance of military vehicles supplied to Ukraine either directly or via the German government’s "Ringtausch" multilateral equipment exchange projects form the first step in cooperation between Rheinmetall and UDI. The cooperation will also extend to the joint production in Ukraine of selected Rheinmetall products.
