Vedomosti.- Kamaz may introduce part-time mode at the enterprise. Relevant measures may be taken as of 20 April, due to interruptions in component supplies from China, caused by the Coronavirus. The relevant statement has been made by the corporate publication of the company.

“The order has been issued as a precaution against a possible interruption in the supply of a number of components. Such orders are designed to help avoid unplanned production downtime, in order to prevent the company from losing money” – according to the statement.
