“The concern's management is considering the possibility of increasing production capacity at our plant. The company is planning to invest about eight million euros in the Ulyanovsk production of new components – a magnesium base for steering wheels. In addition, we have discussed the possibility to provide additional investment and to participate in the project for production of key security systems for Aurus cars from the presidential cortege. Next year the enterprise will install new production lines to manufacture security systems for these cars”, – Sergey Morozov emphasized.
In addition, the head of the region met up with another large German company, which supplies leading global manufacturers and Boeing aircraft-building plants with components. The company is planning to implement an investment project to establish an enterprise for production of plastic details for the automotive industry and, in the long term, the aviation one in the Ulyanovsk region. The Port Special Economic Zone can become a possible venue for the plant. The goods will be delivered to automobile plants of the leading global car manufacturers located in Russia. During the first stage, investment into the project will make 200 million rubles.
