Component production plant BRISK has opened in Tolyatti

Autostat. – The official opening of the new auto components factory BRISK RUS took place in Tolyatti on 19 October. The production line of spark plugs, designed for both primary and secondary markets, has been launched at the facility. The company is an affiliate of Czech BRISK Tabor. Ceramic insulators will be supplied to Tolyatti from the parent company in Czech Republic.

“The plant in Tolyatti is not our first enterprise on Russian soil” – says Karel Kopriva, the technical director of BRISK – “we had a plant in Kaliningrad Region previously, in the city of Ozersk. However, it didn’t work out due to logistical reasons. We have opted for Tolyatti, as it’s the largest region for automotive production in the country.”

€5 million have been invested in the Tolyatti project. A small number of staff is needed at the facility, thanks to modern technology and automation (50 jobs created). The current task is to increase the production volume.

BRISK Tabor plant is a world famous manufacturer of spark plugs for petrol and gas engines, as well as sensors for the automotive industry. The products of the plant are exported to more than 70 countries of the world. However, as stated by the chairman and the founder of the company Mojmir Chupka, the Russian market has the priority for the Czech manufacturer.
