KAZAN, December 31 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s truck manufacturer KAMAZ this year produced and sold 45,000 heavy trucks, which is 11,000 more than in 2010, the company’s general director Sergei Kogogin told the media this week.
“The most significant feature of 2011 was the condition of Russia’s market, which points to the high pace of the recovery of the national economy,” Kogogin said. In the domestic market KAZMAZ is the leading partner, its vehicles sell at once, at preliminary requests.
“This year the company has reconsidered its business plan upwards twice,” he said.
In 2011 we restored our positions and achieved the pre-crisis level of production,” Kogogin said. In the fourth quarter of the year the company’s main assembly line operated at the highest pace, 240 vehicles a day.
About the 2012 plans Kogogin said, “Our task is to retain the market and to build up production.”
At a meeting of the financial committee it was confirmed that the company’s January and February order books are full.
“Also, there is the state defense contract,” Kogogin said.
According to the available statistics, KAMAZ export looks well enough.
“The market of Kazakhstan has been restored and sales in Ukraine have been expanding. New markets - such as India - are beginning to open. Sales are being restored in the Arab countries. Clients in European countries have been buying our trucks - powerful and reliable - more frequently,” the KAMAZ general director said.
KAMAZ, Russia’s largest truck manufacturer, holds eleventh place in the group of the world’s leading producers of heavy trucks and 8th place in the world by the production of diesel engines. The KAMAZ group incorporates 96 enterprises. KAMAZ trucks are operated in more than 80 countries of the CIS, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
