With the present rapid expansion of globalization in the world, businesses are often confronted with increasing competition in the international market and are finding it increasingly difficult to gain a significant competitive advantage. In order to remain competitive, it is necessary to allocate the resources needed to strengthen competitiveness and efficiency.

They create favorable conditions for increasing the productivity and innovation of companies, improving the quality of products, and developing and improving new products or technologies.

Rocket Cluster is an organization operating on the basis of joint activities, the members of which are SMEs, 5 members in total: Cluster Coordinator/Applicant (Metal Production UAB) and Cluster Members/Project Partners (AKSONAS UAB, Santaviltė UAB, LZ Technika UAB, ANAGA UAB). It provides engineering design and production services and other services related to these activities. The members of the Cluster seek to unite their activities by organizing and expanding the export of engineering services and products in order to expand their export and attract foreign customers to the companies of the Cluster.
