Ford Sollers increased the localization level of Transit model


As a part of the modernization, Ford Transit received even more structural elements of Russian production. So, in the process of localization, all Ford Transit modifications are equipped now with single-leaf parabolic springs made of steel grade 50KHGFA manufactured at the Chusovsky Metallurgical Plant (ChMZ) with improved rubber-metal hinges, the press service of FordSollers reported. As noted, thanks to such changes, it was possible to increase the stiffness and reliability of this rear suspension element.

In addition, as a part of the development of the priority direction for Ford Sollers - vertical localization, which provides the organization of the entire production chain in Russia from the extraction of raw materials to the production of finished components, the deliveries of bumpers for FordTransit from Heaton-Plast 2 from local material were localized and started in 2019.

The supply chain includes enterprises of the petrochemical and automotive industries of the Republic of Tatarstan: Tatneft - production, Nizhnekamskneftekhim (Nizhnekamsk) - base polymers, Heaton Plast 2 - bumper. Thus, the production chain from oil production and processing of raw materials to the manufacture of parts and its installation on a vehicle is 100% localized. Dashboards and door panels for Ford Transit are also produced of local raw materials. In addition, the FordTransit car received new steel wheels from a supplier in Tatarstan - the company "Acuride Wheels Russia", made from Russian raw materials. Recall, in September of the previous year, Ford Sollers Yelabuga plant began the production of the updated Ford Transit.
