RUSSIA: KamAZ restarts production

KamAZ has begun production on its main assembly line following a shutdown since early August, local media reported.

KamAZ has begun production on its main assembly line following a shutdown since early August, local media reported.

Russia’s largest truck maker originally halted work on the line to clear stocks that had built up due to slowing demand.

The company’s PR director, Oleg Afanasyev, was quoted saying: “As scheduled, the car plant’s main assembly line will be restarted on 7 September.”

KamAZ has not yet finalised its expected level of output for September, the report added.

The company has suspended production several times this year due to a decline in demand for trucks in Russia’s recession-hit economy.

In 2008, Kamaz produced 51,005 trucks.
