On May 5, 1945, under the People's Commissar of Aviation Industry A. I. Shakhurin's order No. 193 an experimental design bureau (OKB) was established at OKB-478 plant to design new and update aero engines of medium and low powers designed earlier for civil aviation. A regular designer Alexander Georgiyevich Ivchenko was appointed to be a Chief of the OKB (Experimental Design Bureau) who later on (in 1963) became a Designer General of the Enterprise. The backbone of the new design bureau comprised the experienced specialists of the engine-manufacturing plant, which had passed a splendid school of design and development of aero engines ranged from M-11 to M-88B and Ash-82FN. In 1966 the enterprise was renamed to Progress Zaporozhye Machine-Building Design Bureau (ZMDB). Since 1994 the enterprise was named after Academician A.G. Ivchenko, and since 2004 -- SE Ivchenko-Progress
