Hratch Dabbaghian and his family came to Armenia from Syria two years ago. Hratch has 35 years of experience in machine repair and manufacturing machine parts. After working in different businesses in Armenia and experiencing the language barrier when encountering Russian words among clients, Hratch decided to open his own business. He works with tools both from Armenia and Syria, and he hopes that the work will increase with time and his increasing familiarity with native Armenians’ language. Hratch advises others in his field to learn the Russian names for their tools and to be patient when starting a new business in Armenia.
