Kuznya na Rybalskomu (Ukrainian: "Кузня на Рибальському") is a ship building and armament company in Kiev, Ukraine. Although situated on the Dnieper River and presently concentrated on river ships, the company is able to produce & repair small sea vessels (both civil and naval), as well as various military equipment.
The Kuznya na Rybalskomu is indirectly controlled by Ukrainian businessman and politician Petro Poroshenko.
Main production facilities of the company are situated on the Rybalskyi Island in Kiev since 1928. The shipyard specializes in shipbuilding, ship machines building, and propeller production. In the field of shipbuilding, the plant specializes in building medium fishing vessels, industrial ships and vessels of technical fleet, self-propelled and non-self-propelled barges. Machine building includes steam and hot-water automated boiler units, plate freezing apparatuses, and incinerators. Propeller production includes controllable-pitch propeller (CPP), blades, and lines of shafting.
It was founded in 1862 by production engineer Donat Fedir Hryhorovych as a Joint Stock Company. It was mainly a mechanical plant and made different metal structures. For a short period of time (1889-1924), the plant was named "Kiev Machine-Building Plant" and in 1924, it was renamed to Leninska Kuznia. In 1928, by the Decree of Supreme Soviet Union Leninska Kuznia was made into a shipyard. In 1995, the company completed a change in ownership and open-type joint Stock Company was set up named Leninska Kuznia Plant. The machine building sector still constitutes a high percentage in general scope of production. In 2017 the plant changed its name to Kuznya na Rybalskomu (Smithy on Rybalskyi).
