Founded in 1907, Motor Sich JSC is one of the largest engine manufacturers for airplanes and helicopters in the world. The enterprise also produces industrial gas turbine installations. Motor Sich JSC employed nearly 27,000 workers as of 2014. Motor Sich had a contract volume for 2013 of more than $900 mln, a 12% increase over last year. About 90% of that total is for modifications and updates for D-436, AI-222 and AI-20 helicopter engines. Major customers are Russia, China, India, and countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

Russia currently does not produce helicopter engines. The Ukrainian facility which is most important for Russia's military are Motor Sich in Zaporizhzhya, which produces helicopter engines. The Motor-Sich factory in Zaporizhzhya, Ukraine, inherited the corresponding capacities from the Soviet Union. As of 2014 Russia needed approximately 3,000 engines for new combat and transport helicopters, but had managed to build just one fully Russian equivalent. Russia was planning to produce approximately 50 a year, while it was going to need approximately 3,000 engines for its helicopters in a matter of two or three years.

The annual turnover of the enterprise - $300 million - matches or exceeds the receipts of Russia's biggest engine manufacturers: the Ufa Engine Production Association (Russian acronym UMPO), Salyut Moscow Machine-Building Production Association (MMPP Salyut) and Saturn Scientific Production Association Joint Stock Company (Saturn NPO JSC).
