Currently 19 companies are operating in the territory of the Dimitrovgrad Auto Modular Plant's industrial park.

According to the representatives of OOO Neftekhimkomplekt, mounting of the company's production lines will be completed by the end of March, 2017. However, the first launch should take place in a few days. It is planned that the enterprise the enterprise will employ about 100 people. The expected plant capacity will be 1,5 thousand tons of products a month.

Within the International Investment Forum in Sochi the Governor Sergey Morozov and the Director-General of OOO NPO RosKompozit Vladimir Churin also reached an agreement on placement of production in the territory of the DAAZ industrial plant. The investor plans to lease a ready industrial case of 10 thousand square meters with its further repurchase.

On September 27, legislation on provision of tax benefits for enterprises placed in the territory of industrial parks in monotowns of the first category was adopted. In particular, residents of OJSC DAAZ will be the ones to receive these privileges. So, starting from 1 January 2017, the profit tax rate for the companies carrying out production activity in the territory of the industrial park will amount to 13,5%. It should be transfered into the regional budget for a period of four years. For the managing company of the industrial park the profit tax rate will be 0% for the same period.

In addition, availability of initial communication networks and the low cost of electricity are some of the venue's advantages for placement of new productions.

"Specifically, residents of the industrial park will be able to use efficiency gains obtained through the income tax rebate to upgrade the existing production facilities, to buy the most up to date equipment, as well as to carry out activites which will help in improving social appeal of working specialties", - noted Sergey Savelyev, the Head of the Department of Industry.

Dimitrovgrad is one of the places that can receive the status of a Territory of Advanced Social and Economic Development, which is another effective instrument for attraction of investors. This status is given to the monotowns that have created and defended a comprehensive development programme. According to the experts of DAAZ, if Dimitrovgrad is named the Advanced Development Territory, there is a possibility to attract new enterprises to the industrial site.
