Gestamp opens its fourth
plant in Russia

  • The first Edscha plant in the country will now supply door hinges, liftgate hinges and rear door hinges from Russia


Remscheid, March 10
, 2016 – Gestamp has opened its fourth plant in Russia that will be operated by the Group company Edscha in Togliatti, located about 1,000 km southeast of Moscow. The first plant of Edscha in Russia will now supply door hinges, liftgate hinges and rear door hinges.

“Our entry into the Russian market is another milestone in our globalization strategy,” says Torsten Greiner, CEO of Edscha. “Although the situation in Russia is difficult at present, we are confident that we have made the right long-term decision. We’ll be able to meet the needs of our Russian customers right from the market and increase our local content.” This year some 50 employees have started assembling and manufacturing door hinges, liftgate hinges and rear door hinges

 

 

for the Russian market, with an expected total production of some 2.5 million hinges for 2016.

In the medium term Edscha plans to employ more than 150 employees in Togliatti. The production area comes to approximately 5,000 square meters. An additional area of almost 6,000 square meters is available for later expansion.

Gestamp started operating in Russia in 2008. Including Edscha Togliatti the Company today has four plants in the country where more than 650 people are employed. In 2014, Russia was the 11th market for Gestamp.

Next goal: Mexico
Edscha is currently planning another facility in addition to the new one in Russia. Groundbreaking for a plant in San Louis Potosí, Mexico, is scheduled in the coming months.

In 2013, Edscha expanded its Asian activities on a massive scale, establishing two joint ventures in Thailand and Korea and opening a new plant in Kunshan, China. “Our goal is to take advantage of the

 

 

opportunities arising in new markets and strengthen our position as a technology leader,” says Greiner.
