Russian truck maker KamAZ resumes work after three-week halt

Date:2009-05-13

Russia's largest truck maker KamAZ has resumed production, after a lack of orders led to a three-week halt, a spokesman for the truck producer said.

"The main assembly line was halted on April 23 as KamAZ completed its orders for the month. Today KamAZ's main assembly line and all production units have restarted work," the spokesman said.

The ongoing global financial and economic crisis has caused a slump in world demand for vehicles. Since the start of the year, the Volga-based truck producer has been based only on the concrete orders. In the past 18 months, KamAZ has suspended production several times.

KamAZ dispatched over 2,500 trucks and auto sets to consumers in April or 300 vehicles more than in March, the spokesman said.

KamAZ, which is based in Naberezhnye Chelny in the Volga republic of Tatarstan, produced about 13,200 trucks in January-March 2009 or 61% less than in the same period last year, the spokesman said.

Auto factories throughout Russia have been hard-hit by rising prices for auto parts and other supplies, and declining sales.
