BelOMO Holding
is a multiproduct Association being engaged in development and production of high-quality optoelectronic, laser and optical-and-mechanical products which meet the world standards and requirements.




The history of the Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA) springs from foundation of the Minsk Mechanical Works named after S.I. Vavilov (MMW) in 1957 (the first products – cameras and the machines for optical instruments and devices processing). In view of expansion of production volume and nomenclature of the products being manufactured, in 1971 the Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association has been founded on the basis of the MMW named after S.I. Vavilov


BelOMA held the leading position in the optical branch of the USSR and solved the tasks on development and production of special-purpose items and the civilian goods. The plants which were parts of the Association specialized in production of definite kinds of products:

BelOMA-MMW named after S.I. Vavilov - is the extremely sophisticated optomechanical and optoelectronic equipment (space, topographic, multispectral apparata, photogrammetric systems and complexes, cine-theodolite equipment, gyrostabilized sights, sights for armoured vehicles, laser guidance devices, industrial portable and stationary film projectors).

"Zenit" Works, city of Vileyka – the only plant in the former USSR which was engaged in production of cameras. Besides, the works produced optical sights for small arms.

"Diaprojector" Plant, city of Rogachev – slide projection equipment, various types of sights and guidance devices for armoured vehicles.

"Svet" Plant, city of Zhlobin – reproduction equipment, photographic enlargers, optical devices for the needs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR.

In the nineties LEMT Unitary Enterprise has been founded in the structure of BelOMA which specialized on development and production of laser products and products for medicine; ZEISS-BelOMA Joint Venture – joint Belarusian-German Enterprise which produced high-precision optical products. A number of the isolated enterprises have been organized: "SFERA" Plant which produces optical parts, "FORMA" Plant which produces foundry and moulds.
