By Mike Brezonick03 January 2018
A cooperation agreement has been signed between Kässbohrer and Russia’s Association of International Road Carriers (AIRC) through which AIRC’s member transport companies will modernize their fleet with Kässbohrer trailers. No financial details were provided.
“Kässbohrer is a brand which we have known for a long time with its latest technology products and quality,” said Sergey Ivanovic Baklitsky, vice president of AIRC, whose member fleets encompass about 30,000 vehicles. “We are convinced that our transporters will overcome the harsh climate and geographical conditions in Russia thanks to Kässbohrer products that they will increase the quality of their business.”
“We have a great know-how on trailers throughout the world and thus we have our proven engineering achievement as a result,” said Kässbohrer Chairman Çetin Nuhoğlu. “Our clients in Russia will be able to use all our better, safer, more modern and state-of-the-art products, not only as a result of our know-how in Russia but also as a result of our total competence.
“We did not come to Russia temporarily. We believed in the Russian market from the very beginning, with our sales office in 2010 and our factory in 2011. All our products we produce in our facilities with an open area of 54,000 m2 and a closed area of 9,500 m2 are “Made in Russia.” Next year we will build a new additional production line in our Yasnagorsk plant with a closed area of 8,000 m2.”
