Belarusian Autoworks will send work to Russia and Kazakhstan, the First Deputy Director General for Technical Policy and Innovative Technologies of BelAZ Oleg Stepuk told reporters Thursday.
This development plan is in line with planned upgrade and construction projects to develop new plants and to modernize existing ones. A top priority is upgrading painting facilities to ensure that they are within modern production requirements.
Outsourcing to South Africa had produced positive results.
“Taking into consideration that it is pretty hard now to get cash for the products sold, the company decided to focus on outsourcing," Stepuk said. "We have some relevant experience in Belarus: the other day our BelAZ-Service started outsourcing works to Mikashevichi. The first days of operation demonstrated pretty good economic results. Outsourcing has proved efficient in South Africa where we have about 40 vehicles. Now we are focusing on outsourcing operations in the Russian Federation and would like to do the same in Kazakhstan.”
