On November 18 President of Bashkortostan MurtazaRakhimov held a work meeting with the Vice-President of “AGGO” corporation Hubertus Mullhoizer in the Republic House.
The matter of the meeting was the plans of further cooperation between “AGGO” and JSC “Neftekamsk motor-car plant” (NEFAZ), where production of the harvesters “Challenger-647” started this year. By the end of the year 20 harvesters will be assembled at the plant.
“We are satisfied with the results, achieved in the course of the project on joint production of agricultural machinery. At today’s meeting with President of Bashkortostan we were talking about progress in our relations and about the necessity to increase the deliveries of agricultural machinery” – Hubertus Mullhoizer reported to journalists after the meeting – “Now we start the process of localization and this process presumes that certain number of joints for the harvesters will be assembled in your Republic. We are happy we’ve managed to provide the first deliveries of the harvesters to the fields. These machines were successfully used during the harvest-2009”.
It should be noted that the Italian plant “LAVERDA” in the staff of the international corporation “AGGO” provides deliveries of assembly sets and JSC “NEFAZ” assembles the harvesters. Six thousand square meters were allocated for the new production. The plant is able to assemble up to 600 harvesters annually. The contract between “AGGO” and “NEFAZ” was signed in July 2009. Cooperation of the plant with this international corporation made it possible to open more than 600 additional workplaces and to continue production diversification. The process of localization presumes that 70% of assembly sets and spare parts will be manufactured by “NEFAZ” and several other Republican enterprises: plastic details, rubber goods, filters and attached implements.
The deputy Prime-Minister of Government RB, Minister of industry and external economic relations Uri Pustovgarov and General Director of JSC “NEFZ” Raif Malikov participated in the
