Bobruisk plant of tractor parts and units to ship first batch of merchandise to Mexico

19 november 2014 года

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units (OAO BZTDiA) will ship the first batch of tractors to Mexico.

The contract to deliver tractors was signed with the Mexican company Servicios al Campo de Alta Calidad S.A. de C.V. (Veracruz) in October 2014, explained the source. The contract envisages the delivery of two Belarus 321 tractors, four mounted instruments (a harrow, a plough, a sprayer, and a ridging plough) as well as a set of spare parts for the tractors.

It is the fourth Latin America country that the Bobruisk tractor parts factory has started shipping its merchandise over the last 12 months. Compact Belarus tractors have already been shipped to Cuba, Nicaragua, and Peru. Taking into account the previously explored market of Venezuela Latin America is rapidly becoming one of the most promising export areas for the Bobruisk-based company. The new Mexican partner of OAO BZTDiA — Servicios al Campo de Alta Calidad S.A. de C.V. — is an official dealer of Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ).

The arrival of the Bobruisk-made tractors in Mexico is of strategic importance for the consequent expansion of the presence of OAO BZTDiA in Latin America. The Mexican tractor market is one of the largest in the region. Apart from that, Mexico is part of the free trade zones involving Northern America and Central America countries. Mexico can become the foothold for the consequent expansion of the geography of sales, primarily in Central America.

Bobruisk Plant of Tractor Parts and Units was founded in 1945. It was converted into a public joint-stock company in 2014. The enterprise specializes in making spare parts for tractors Belarus. In 2007 the enterprise started making compact tractors of the Belarus 320 series. At present the company's manufacturing program includes nine basic models of tractors with their power ranging from 30 to 62hp. Since the company started making tractors, these tractors have been shipped to over 40 countries.
