In the first 7 months of 2017 Ulyanovsk automotive industry sold products worth over 30 billion rubles
Half of this volume was accounted by the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant.
According to the First Deputy Chairman of the regional Government Andrey Tyurin, manufacturers of motor vehicles and automotive components make up to approximately 30% in the structure of processing industry. “We pay particular attention to this sphere. At the request of the Governor Sergey Morozov, an automobile cluster shall be created in the region. The Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant, which plays an important role in this industry today, will become its anchor enterprise. Following the results of the first 7 months of the year, UAZ has showed insignificant decrease of its performance – the amount of products shopped by the enterprise was by 5% lower than in the same period last year. Despite this, the total amount of revenue exceeded 14.5 billion rubles. At the same time, AO "Isuzu Rus" takes the leading position in the region on the growth rate of shipped products. The enterprise has improved the last year's results by almost 80% and reached the indicator of 5.4 billion rubles”, - said the First Deputy Chairman.
As the First Deputy Director General of PAO "Sollers" Nikolay Sobolev noted, it was possible to keep car production at the same level as last year thanks to significant increase in export and the launch of the updated UAZ Patriot model. “Following the results of the first half of the year, sales of UAZ cars in the foreign markets has increased almost twofold in comparison with the similar indicator last year and has reached 1911 units. Essential growth of export became possible thanks to recovery of sales volumes in the markets that have always been traditional places for the release of UAZ products - the ones of the CIS and neighboring countries. The other reason is that we have expanded sales geography and gave automobile manufacturers access to new markets”, – the First Deputy Director General commented.
According to the regional Ministry for Industry, Construction, Housing and Public Utilities and Transport, the great performance of AO "Isuzu Rus" can be explained by expansion of its car production line. Today the enterprise in Ulyanovsk manufactures a full range of ISUZU commercial vehicles with the full weight of three and more tons. In May 2017, launch of vehicle assembly lines of the C and E series took place. The production target for 2017 is 4300 units.
