Renault delivered to Algeria 30 thousandth body of the Russian production


Renault Russia company exported the 30-thousandth welded and painted body of Russian production for the Renault Logan car to the Renault plant in Algeria, where the car is manufactured under the name Symbol. Recall, the project for the export of welded and painted bodies for cars Renault Logan in Algeria started in December of 2016.

As the press service of Renault Russia reports, the bodies were manufactured at the AvtoVAZ (Togliatti) plant in accordance with the global quality standards of Renault. Shipments to the Renault plant in Algeria are carried out in two stages: a container train through Russia to the port of Novorossiysk, then by sea to the port of Arzev (Algeria).

In 2016, about 1000 bodies were exported. Since September 18th, 2017, the capacity of the production line at the site in Togliatti has been doubled - up to 120 bodies per day. Due to this in 2017, the volume of export supplies was more than 20 thousand bodies, which is significantly higher than the preliminary plans, initially set at over 14 thousand bodies.

As noted, the export of welded and painted bodies from Russia helps simultaneously the development of the production site in the promising market of Algeria, and also allows the additional production capacity in our country. Thanks to the constant work of Renault Russia on the localization of production, at present the export of auto components and spare parts from Russia to other countries is being established, and their flow is expanding. To date, 185 different items are exported from Russia (in 2016, more than 160 items were supplied), in particular, parts for stamping, plastic parts, brake system components and running gear, lighting devices.

Among the main export markets there are the countries of Eurasia (61%), Latin America (25%), Europe (6%), as well as Africa, the Middle East and India. By the results of 2017, the turnover of exports of Russian components within the Renault Group exceeded 75 million Euros, which is 3.3 times more than the same indicator in 2016.
