KamAZ PJSC and Uza­v­tosanoat JSC have signed a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment pro­vid­ing for the or­ga­ni­za­tion of pro­duc­tion of cargo ve­hi­cles in Uzbek­istan.

The re­lease of trucks un­der the KamAZ brand in Uzbek­istan will be set up at the fa­cil­i­ties of UzAu­toTrailer LLC (a sub­sidiary of Uza­v­tosanoat JSC). In ad­di­tion, es­tab­lish­ment of a joint ven­ture to as­sem­ble ve­hi­cles in the coun­try in the fu­ture is en­vis­aged.

Ac­cord­ing to the agree­ment, KamAZ will sup­ply assem­bly sets of com­po­nents and ac­ces­sories to UzAu­toTrailer, whose du­ties in­clude as­sem­bling the chas­sis, and in­stalling the su­per­struc­ture of its own and joint pro­duc­tion. As part of the or­ga­ni­za­tion of cargo auto pro­duc­tion in Uzbek­istan, the first 100 assem­bly kits for as­sem­bling KamAZ ve­hi­cles in the repub­lic are planned to be de­liv­ered by the end of De­cem­ber this year.

«The open­ing of the joint pro­duc­tion will al­low us to unite our ef­forts with the lead­ing en­ter­prise of the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try of Uzbek­istan and ex­pand our pres­ence in ex­port mar­kets,» Sergey Ko­gogin, Direc­tor Gen­eral of KamAZ PJSC, com­mented the sign­ing of the agree­ment. “In ad­di­tion, with its ap­pear­ance on the ter­ri­tory of the repub­lic, KamAZ ve­hi­cles with high tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics will be closer to con­sumers. They will have an op­por­tu­nity to up­date the fleet with mod­ern, re­li­able, pow­er­ful cargo ve­hi­cles and con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of var­i­ous in­dus­tries of the repub­lic.

The first col­lected cars will be pre­sented on the joint Cus­tomer Day, which will be held in early 2018. The fi­nal joint prod­uct will be sold on the do­mes­tic mar­ket of Uzbek­istan and ex­port mar­kets through the dis­trib­u­tor's dealer and its dealer net­work cre­ated by the par­ties. As stip­u­lated by the agree­ment, the joint ven­ture-dis­trib­u­tor, de­signed to en­sure the con­trol of the de­liv­ery time of the equipment to the end user, the com­plete­ness of the pro­posed model range of KamAZ ve­hi­cles, the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the joint prod­uct in ex­port mar­kets, will be cre­ated as soon as pos­si­ble.

In ad­di­tion, within the frame­work of the co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment, de­liv­er­ies of spare parts and spe­cial bod­ies from Uzbek­istan to the en­ter­prises of KamAZ are planned.
