The second turn of the workshop for production of motor-car components by the German company “Witzenmann” is solemnly opened in Ufa today and the President RB Rustem Khamitov took part in the ceremony.

The workshop will produce screens and boots for the exhaust systems for the cars of such brands as “VAZ”, “Ford”, “Renault”, “Volkswagen”, “Hyundai” and some others, assembled on the territory of Russia.

The company “Witzenmann” develops its investment projects on the territory of Bashkortostan since 2003. Along with the production of motor-car components the company produces metal hoses, flexible pipelines and other wares for the enterprises of oil-gas chemistry and ferrous metallurgy.

As the Consul General of Germany on the territory of Russia Renate Schimkoreit, who also took part in the opening ceremony, said, the first stone in the shop’s foundation was laid more than two years ago. That time the workshop seemed to be opened in the nearest future but because of the crisis the company had to shutdown development of its investment projects on the territory of Russia and construction of the workshop was completed only in 2011.

Now, after the economic situation looks much better, the company intends to widen production on the territory of Bashkortostan. The overall volume of the company’s investments in economics RB should make up about 250 million rubles in 2011. And one more similar workshop will be erected near the already working one in 2012. It will add other 30-50 workplaces.

Rustem Khamitov became acquainted with the new workshop, left his autograph on one of the company’s wears and wished the partners from Germany the soonest laying of the first stone in foundation of one more production line.
