Fuso production will resume in Tatarstan in September

Rossiyskaya Gazeta – Assembly production of Fuso Tucks will resume in Naberezhnye Chelny from September onwards. According to the statement made by the Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp. press office, the company aims to increase its share in the 3.5-16 tonnes truck segment to 5%, by the end of the year.

As one may remember, Fuso truck production was suspended in Naberezhnye Chelny in April, due to the shrinkage in the market. There’s a downward tendency in the sales of the model since October 2014.

Mitsubishi Fuso, which belongs to Daimler Trucks, had commenced operations in 2010. The company has manufactured over 6800 Fuso up to today. The facility, where 195 people are employed, has an annual production capacity of 3000 vehicles.
