125th Machine Factory
Pyongyang Pig Factory
Factory No. 125, the DPRK's primary ballistic missile assembly facility, is reported to employ an estimated 5000 workers. It is also involved in the assembly of surface-to-air and anti-ship cruise missiles. The 125 Factory [also called the "Pyongyang Pig Factory"] missile production facility is located in the Hyengjesan Area of Pyongyang.
Foreign dignitaries and military delegations from Egypt, Iran, Pakistan and Syria have visited the factory. In November 1999 North Korea supplied Iran with 12 engines used in the Nodong medium-range missiles. The engines were loaded on an Iran Air Boeing 747 cargo jet at Sunan International Airfield, about 12 miles north of Pyongyang.
