The CEO of KAMAZ, Sergey Kogogin said that KAMAZ will produce cabins Daimler not only for itself but also for the joint venture with the German company – «Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok”. He remarked that all principal decisions were taken.

“We are in the stage of equipment design now, the order for its implementation we made in Austria as we didn’t find appropriate variants in Russia”, - said the head of KAMAZ. The company is going to localize the production, the manager of projects of Daimler AG – KAMAZ, Carsten Botmann, confirmed it for the newspaper “Vedomosti”. The percentage of localization is up to 22% by some models that are produced by “Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok”. He said that they are going to increase the average indicators to the level more than 30% in the medium term”. 

KAMAZ agreed about the licensed production of Daimler cabins for some of its trucks in summer. The signed agreement assumed the production of 20,000 cabins of one type size – for vehicles with normal and high roof, with a bunk. It covers 70% of current model range of KAMAZ, explained Mr. Kogogin. By his words, the production of trucks KAMAZ with cabins Daimler will be started in 2013 in the mode of a pilot batch. Total investments in the production of cabins project will be about RUB 6,000,000,000. Cabins of KAMAZ production will be delivered to “Merceds-Benz Trucks Vostok” in 2014-2015. 

“Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok” sold 1561 trucks (the growth – 2,5 times) for 10 months of 2012 in accordance with “ASM-Holding”. According to Association of European Business, sales of trucks Mercedes-Benz with a mass over 16tonnes in Russia grew by 78% to 3104 units for nine months of 2012. KAMAZ is going to sell 45,500 trucks and vehicle sets (it is less by 2,500 units than it planned) in 2012, said Mr. Kogogin.

The executive director of AUTOSTAT agency, Sergey Udalov, supposes that the growth of cabin production due to orders of Daimler will decrease costs of products, it will reduce the payback period of project and it will attract producers of components. The main risk of project is the compliance of cabin quality with requirements of Daimler, he remarked. If KAMAZ could provide the necessary level then it will improve significantly consumer characteristics of its trucks, the expert underlined.
