Sphere of activity: Autoclaster

Project description

Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Rus is the first foreign full‑cycle car producer in Russia. The site buildings include press stamping, welding, painting and assembly shops. Hyundai plant is equipped with high‑performance technology equipment to ensure a high processes automation.

Stamping, welding and painting automation ratio is over 80%. Since its very launch, Hyundai plant production has been highly localised (over 45%), due primarily to the eleven Korean component suppliers present in the Northwestern region and cooperation with a number of Russian and foreign suppliers.

The plant produces four new models: Hyundai Solaris and Kia Rio, each coming as a sedan and hatchback. The cars have been specifically designed to Russian consumer requirements and are fit for Russia’s roads and weather conditions.

In 2016, Hyundai will launch a new model – a compact SUV Hyundai Creta. Hyundai was the first foreign car producer in Russia to export its products outside the Customs Union in April 2011.

The plant was formally launched on 21 April 2010, and large‑scale production started in January 2011.
