Mann+Hummel and Mubea have stopped their factory constructions in Russia

RusAutoNews.Com – According to the press office of the government of Samara region, the manufacturer of air filters and inlet modules for passenger cars: Mann+Hummel has given up on the construction of a plant in Tolyatti Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and sold the incomplete site to Prodmash-composite in February 2017. The company planned to invest 444 million rubles in the Tolyatti site and reach an annual production volume of 450,000 components. Mann+Hummel has another plant in Russia, in Naberezhnye Chelny.

Mubea Suspension Components Rus, the affiliate company of the German Mubea Group, has postponed its suspension springs production project for automobiles. The company has rescheduled its plans in the design process of the building framework and the start of the construction works, due to the shrinkage in car production in the Russian market. “We plan to launch the Tolyatti SEZ plant by the end of 2020. According to our predictions, the Russian automobile market will have recovered to a level that would enable us to receive enough orders to start the production by that time” – said the project manager Alexei Berezhnov.

As one may remember, the construction of the plant had started in 2014. The company had plans to invest more than 700 million rubles.
