Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units starts exporting to Algeria

24 may 2011 года

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units (Mogilev Oblast) has shipped the first batch of tractors to Algeria, BelTA has learnt from the company.

The talks with the Algerian partners had been underway since the beginning of the year. An Algerian delegation visited the plant to study the manufacturing environment. But only a week ago the ice broke up – under a contract with the company Belarus Motors Algerie, the Bobruisk-based plant shipped the first batch of 12 Belarus-321 tractors to this country. One of these days three shipping containers with Bobruisk tractors will depart from the Klaipeda port, Lithuania, to Algeria.

“Our new Algerian partner is not a newcomer to the Belarusian market; the company is an official dealer of the MTZ. It has enough experience of dealing in Belarusian machines and providing their maintenance. Therefore, we hope that this will not be a one-time supply, but continuous cooperation with this country,” the specialists said.

According to them, the company is pursuing an aggressive export policy. This year alone, the company forged new partnerships with companies from Afghanistan, Iraq, Mongolia and China and signed a major contract with four Pakistani companies to supply 48 tractors.

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units was founded in 1945. It manufactures more than 500 component parts and units for the entire range of tractors. In 2009 the plant started to produce more powerful tractors Belarus-622 and Belarus-422. The company has a quality management system in compliance with the ISO 9001 2001 international standards. Today the company employs about 3,500 people.
