Ulyanovsk Machine-Tool plant is to increase the share of Russian components in the production
Today the agreement of intent was signed in Petrozavodsk in the presence of the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov. According to it, a production of frames for machines with ECOLINE CNC made by the enterprise will be placed in the Republic of Karelia.
The Managing Director of GILDEMEISTER Beteiligungen GmbH Dirk Hullmann and the Director-General of OOO "Ulyanovsk Machine Tool" Alexey Antipin will be the customers; the Director-General of ООО "Atomenergomash" Andrey Nikipelov and the Director of OOO "Petrozavodskmash Foundry" Vadim Tryapichkin will act as suppliers. The parties declared their interest in long-term cooperation and implementation of joint projects on localization of machine-tool production.
According to the dedicated experts, the agreement allows to complete one of the key conditions of the special investment contract – to decrease the share of import components in machines of the Ulyanovsk Machine-Tool Plant. The Government of the Russian Federation, the German-Japanese concern DMG Mori Seiki and the Ulyanovsk region signed the special investment contract on 30 September 2016. This document became the Russia's first contract of this kind in the sphere of machine-tool construction.
"Today the products of the Ulyanovsk Machine-Tool plant have the marking "Made in Russia". Together with DMG Mori Seiki, we continue to work on finding domestic suppliers of components for an Ulyanovsk manufacturer. The agreement signed with Petrozavodskmash Foundry is a significant step in implementation of the import substitution programme, which was set by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin", – said the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov.
On 2 June 2017, by the initiative of Governor Sergey Morozov an agreement on cooperation was signed at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum between the Government of the Ulyanovsk region and the Government of the Republic of Karelia.
“The document is part of a large export project for the Ulyanovsk Machine-Tool plant. According to its conditions, a mass production of frames for machines with ECOLINE CNC will be created at the facilities of Petrozavodsk branch of AEM-technology until 2020. The project is implemented with the support of the Russian Export Center, the Chamber of Commerce and industry of the Russian Federation and the Federal Service for Technical and Export Control”, – said Alexander Yakovlev, the Director of the Cluster Policy Department of the regional Custer Development Center.
