Sollers and Mazda creates the joint venture in Far East

On November 26th Sollers Company and Japanese car producer Mazda Motor Corp. signed a memorandum about intents, according to which the parties plan to launch a new joint venture on the site of «Sollers – Far East». The joint venture will work on parities basement and production is planned to be launched the next year. New enterprise will produce cars for the further sales in the Russian market.

Ministry of economy promised in summer that Mazda will launch the enterprise of full cycle with capacity of 25-50 thousand cars a year. The investments volume of project must be about 80 million dollars. It was planned that Japanese company will produce Mazda 6 in Russia and one new model, which didn’t appear in the market. But Sollers informed newspaper “Kommersant” that parameters of project are being specified and they will be defined by the moment of final agreement signing.

Mazda concluded an agreement of industrial assembly by old rules with Ministry of economy on June 21st. They suppose to launch the production of capacity not less than 25 thousand cars per year with localization of 30% in 4,5 years in exchange for preferential (0-5%) customs duties for import of components. Besides low duties for import, Mazda will receive a possibility of produced in Far East cars transferring free by railway through the European part of Russia till 2013.

It should be reminded that the president of Mazda, Takashi Yamanuchi, was the first person, who spoke about possibility of production creation in Russia in December of 2010. By his words local production organization in Russia will permit to “compete more successfully” with other foreign producers as the assembly of cars locally “is more effective, then the import of ready ones”.

On the opinion of experts, the collaboration with Sollers – is the most convenient variant of development in the Russian market for Mazda that will use the ready production capacities and it will decrease significantly the investments volume in compare with the plant construction in a green field. Therewith, a ready plant Sollers gives a possibility to reach volumes, which exceed more than 30 thousand cars a year, but they would have to reach this indicator gradually with the launch of a new plant. By the estimations of analysts, sales of Mazda in Russia will be on the level of 50 thousand units per a year in three-four years and about 35 thousand of them will be produced in Far East.
