JSC “NEFAZ” and “AGGO” corporation signed the contract for organization of assembling of 100 grain harvesters in Ufa. The contract is signed by “AGGO” Vice-President Frank Keller and by the General Director of JSC “NEFAZ” Raif Malikov in the presence of the deputy Prime-Minister of Government RB, Minister of industry, investment and innovational policy RB Uri Pustovgarov.

The today’s contract opens wide-scaled production of “AGGO” agricultural machinery by JSC “NEFAZ”. The special workshop for assembling of the harvesters is already working at the plant. The corresponding documents at the governmental level are signed and now the specialists at the level of enterprises start the project now. The final aim of the long-term cooperation is production of one of the best harvesters in the world with a high level of localization here in the Republic.

“Our future joint programs with “AGGO” depend upon successful realization of this project” – Uri Pustovgarov said at the solemn signing ceremony – “The abilities of the Republican machine building allow making this program a reality and it concerns not just the harvesters but the whole range of the agricultural machinery and its attached implements. It is principally important for us that this production is launched here, in Bashkortostan because our Republic stands in the Top 3 of Russian regions by agricultural production and considered one of the main consumers of the agricultural machines”.

The cooperation promises to become a long-term one. At the first stage it is planned to localize production of the harvesters “Challenger”, localization of manufacturing of “AGGO” tractors will become the next stage and production of the attached implements will run in parallel.

The contract is signed for assembling of 100 harvesters and all these machines will work on the fields of Bashkortostan. As the General Director of JSC “NEFAZ” Raif Malikov said, the new harvesters will start working already during the harvest-2010.
