KAZAN, June 23 (RIA Novosti) - Russian truck maker
KamAZ suspended its main assembly line on Tuesday after
completing its orders for June, the company's press office
"The factory has assembled 1,600 auto sets. In the coming
days, the factory's final production units dealing with the
rollout and dispatch of products will complete the fulfillment
of the June plan of 1,700 vehicles and spare parts worth 320.5
million rubles [$10.1 million]," the press office said.
The ongoing global financial and economic crisis has
caused a slump in world demand for vehicles. Since the start of
the year, the Volga-based truck producer has been working only
to concrete orders.
KamAZ last suspended its operations in late May, the most
recent of several stoppages over the past 18 months.
