Avtotor will suspend the BMW assembly due to lack of components


Kaliningrad Avtotor plant will suspend the production of BMW cars from mid-June, said Ruslan Sadykov, general director of Avtotor JSC. Because of the stoppage of BMW plants in Europe and the USA in the spring of 2020, a temporary backlash formed in the supply chain of automotive components, he explained. It is planned to resume the operation of the conveyor and enter the normal production mode in early July.

The fact that the lack of components will be completely resolved by mid-late July, said in an interview with RBC the head of BMW GroupRussia, Stefan Teuchert. He noted that today the capacities of the Kaliningrad plant, which produce BMW cars, are loaded by 70%. After solving the problem and in the context of the expected growth in demand from July, he hopes that production will reach pre-crisis loading.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in late April Avtotor began the assembly of the new BMW X 6 crossovers, which became the eighth model of a Kaliningrad-made brand. And in the first quarter of 2019, Avtotor completed the modernization of the production site for the production of BMW cars. The purpose of the reconstruction of the production site for the production of BMW cars was the increase of volume of products up to 28 thousand cars per a year. However, last year, BMW production at Avtotor fell by 18% to 17.2 thousand cars. At the same time, in June of 2019, at the assembly line of the enterprise it began the assembly of the new flagship crossover BMW X7.

Recall that production at Avtotor was suspended for only two weeks due to quarantine measures - from March 30th to April 13th. In addition to the German brand, Kaliningrad enterprises produce passenger cars KIA, Hyundai, as well as commercial vehicles Hyundai, Ford Cargo. The representative of Avtotor said that there were no problems with the supply of components of these brands amid a decrease in output. As previously reported by the founder of Avtotor, Vladimir Shcherbakov, in 2020 Kaliningrad plant plans to reduce the car production by 40% in average. Recall that at the end of 2019, Avtotor produced 212 thousand cars (+ 5%).
