Kamaz Output on the Rise

Kamaz produced about 5,900 trucks in January and February, 49 percent more than in the same period last year, the company's press office said.

February production rose 55 percent year on year to just over 3,500 trucks.

Kamaz said that during the initial development of the manufacturing program for February, a production break had been considered for the last three days of the month because of insufficient orders.

"However, Kamaz's leadership and management were able to secure additional orders for 360 vehicles. This is basically two days' worth of work for the company's divisions. They started work on March orders, which are up over the previous two months, on the last day of February," the company said.

The group's main motor assembly facilities, its wholly-owned subsidiary Kamaz-Diesel and Cummins-Kama, a joint venture with the U.S. company Cummins, produced 6,400 motors and power units in January and February, up 44 percent year on year, including 3,600 units in February &mdash up 50 percent year on year.

The company sold 843 million rubles ($29.3 million) in spare parts in February, up from 550 million rubles in parts sales for January.
