The company of Altai Krai and Italian company plans to implement a joint project in Rubtsovsk
Cooperation issues were discussed on 1st March during a working meeting, which was held by the First Deputy Governor of Altai Krai Sergey Loktev in the Administration of the region.
The initiative of the project implantation belongs to ZAO “Rubtsovsky spare parts plant”, which is a leader in Russia in the production of diesel plows, as well as it is one of the three leading manufacturers of disc harrows. The essence of the project is to localize production of replacement parts for agricultural machinery in Rubtsovsk, which were previously shipped from Italy.
The owner and vice president of A.M.A Spa Alessandro Malavolti, the chairman of the board of directors of the Rubtsovsky spare parts plant Victor Zobnev, General Director of the company Stanislav Kedik, the Head of the Department of Altai Krai for the development of entrepreneurship and market infrastructure Yevgeny Deshevyh, Deputy Head of the Department of Altai Krai for Industry and Energy Vladimir Loktyushov took part in the working meeting.
During the meeting Alessandro Malavolti noted that the joint investment project of the Italian company A.M.A Spa and Rubtsovsky spare parts plant provides for the supply of equipment and introduction of modern technologies, which can completely abandon the import of replacement parts - discs for harrows, with a high quality level (especially wear resistance). The project also solves the problem of import substitution, raises the technological level of the enterprise, will allow to increase production and create 40 new jobs. It was also noted that in the framework of the implementation of the investment project metal supplier of the new production line will be the Russian company located in Magnitogorsk.
According to Stanislav Kedik components made in an Italian process have been tested on Altai machine station and showed high performance. Using the newest types of discs will reduce the costs of agricultural enterprises by 10-15% compared with the presented analogues on the market at the present time.
The total investments in the project will amount to 317.6 million rubles, the payback period - 4.5 years since the launch of new products into mass production. The annual production of discs will be about 120 thousand units. The next stage of cooperation between the Rubtsovsky Company and Italian company will be a co-production of parts for hydraulic systems of agricultural machinery, which will reduce the volume of imports of this machinery.
