Uzbek-German JV to produce cabins for MAN trucks

10 August 2016

The German automobile concern MAN Truck & Bus AG and Uzbekistan's Uzavtosanoat automobile company will launch the production of cabins for heavy vehicles this September in Samarkand, the Jahon information agency reported.  

The production facilities will be installed on the basis of the joint Uzbek-German enterprise JV MAN Auto Uzbekistan. Modern technological equipment has been purchased from German and Italian manufacturers.

Production of cabins for German trucks will be split into three stages: welding, painting, and assembly. At the first stage it is planned to purchase metal panels from the Chinese company Sinotruk Import & Export Co Ltd and then weld them to the frame. At the next stage the frame will be covered by special corrosion-resistant substance and finally painting will be done at the Samarkand automobile plant. Then the cabins will be delivered to the joint venture, where they will be given their final internal and external appearance.

Up to 3,000 heavy vehicle cabins will be produced annually at the plant. German specialists will be monitoring the quality of the product.

The organization of cabin production in Uzbekistan will help increase the export of vehicles made in Uzbekistan, as the cost of manufacturing the end product will be reduced along with its price.

This is not the only localization project for MAN in Uzbekistan. The company plans to master the production of stamped, metal and plastic automobile parts by the end of 2018. In 2020 the company will also produce in Uzbekistan the interior and exterior of cabins, propeller shafts, radiators, fuel tanks, steel wheels and other components.
