Pirelli plans to increase its presence in the Russian market

The Italian company Pirelli can increase its presence in the Russian market and buy a number of factories where about 2.5 thousand people can work. The prime minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi informed about it after the ceremony of signing of documents about cooperation with the prime minister of Russia Vladimir Putin. The Italian prime minister expressed hope that these plans "are soon concretized", writes the agency "Finmarket".
In December 2009 the state corporation "Rostechnologies" and the Italian tire company Pirelli signed the agreement about realization of the memorandum about basic conditions of the joint venture for manufacture of tires for passenger cars and trucks. The joint venture which is created on an equal footing, in second half of 2010 plans to begin building of a new plant in the created special economic zone in Togliatti. Establishment of the new enterprise will be carried out in two stages: on the first stage the enterprise producing tires for trucks and cars will be constructed and on the second it is planned to be engaged in manufacture of metal cord. Besides, in the future the joint venture also plans to be engaged in production of agricultural tires, "RBC daily" writes. The sum of investments in the new plant is estimated in 300 million euro, its designed capacity will be 4.2 million tires per year. 1.5 thousand workers will work at the enterprise. According to experts, not less than three years is required to build an adequate tire plant.
Also "Rostechnologies" and Pirelli plan to get the already operating Russian enterprise and it is desirable somewhere close to Togliatti. There are no tire plants in the Samara region therefore it is a question about an industrial platform where it is possible to develop manufacture of tire components. According to experts, Pirelli could accelerate start of its manufacture in Russia if it has agreed about partnership with the player operating in the Russian market. In particular, negotiations are carried on with the holding Amtel about acquisition of "Voronezh plant Amtel", but the final decision it is accepted yet.
