The new plant was built in record time in 16 months. The total investment in the project is more than 171 billion tenge. The enterprise has a production capacity of 3.5 million multi-purpose tires annually, employing more than 1,100 specialists. Training of Kazakhstani engineers takes place at tire enterprises in Nizhnekamsk city.
“This production is important both for the development of our industry and is a good example for the development of single-industry towns. After all, over a thousand residents of Saran will be employed at this plant. It should be noted that this is the first domestic enterprise producing tires which will cover the needs of both, automotive industry and motorists,” said Sklyar.
KamaTyresKZ will increase the level of localization of automotive production in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The products will be sent to the primary assembly of cars, as well as to the secondary market and export. It should be noted that this is the only plant in Kazakhstan producing tires, as previously the similar products were imported.
The plant will reach its project capacity in 2024. At the second stage, it is planned the production of rubber products, at the third - tires for agricultural machinery.
“This is only the first stage of the project where we already have got the first labor victories. We are planning to open a plant for engineering products and oversized tires. In general, all this became possible due to the unique investment climate of Kazakhstan, the comprehensive support of the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Kemelyevich Tokayev,” said Rustam Minnikhanov.
The production cycle of a plant in Saran includes 126 units of the main technological and 528 auxiliary equipment of the leading industry manufacturers. It should be noted, the equipment was purchased within the leasing programs of Industrial Development Fund, a subsidiary of Development Bank of Kazakhstan.
The unique technologies and equipment in production are characterized by a high level of automation, energy efficiency and the minimal environmental impact. All technological processes are implemented at the plant in a single sequential scheme - from the preparation of raw materials, the preparation of rubber compounds, harvesting, raw tire assembly to vulcanization and quality inspection.
Specialists who contributed to the implementation of the joint venture in Kazakhstan were awarded certificates of honor by Nail Maganov, CEO of Tatneft, and Andrey Lavrentyev, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Allur.
“I would like to thank the entire large and friendly project team from Kazakhstan and Tatarstan - builders, installers, commissioners, and operation specialists. This is our common success,” Nail Maganov emphasized.
Yermaganbet Bulekpayev, Akim of Karaganda region expressed confidence the plant will become a new growth point for auxiliary production of the new industrial giant, the serial launches of which will take place next year.
