Driving Our Own Cabins


The well-known German automobile concern MAN Truck&Bus AG and the “Uzavtosanoat” will launch the production of cabins for heavy vehicles this coming September in Samarkand.

The production capacities will be installed on the basis of the Joint Uzbek-German enterprise “JV MAN Auto Uzbekistan”. Modern technological equipment has been purchased fr om German and Italian manufacturers.

Production of cabins for German trucks will be split into three stages – welding, painting and assembly. At the first stage it is planned to purchase metal panels fr om the Chinese company Sinotruk Import & Export Co Ltd and then weld them to the frame. At the next stage the frame will be covered by special corrosion-resistant substance and finally painting will be done at the Samarkand automobile plant. Then the cabins will be delivered to the joint venture, wh ere they will be given their final internal and external appearance.

Up to 3,000 heavy vehicle cabins will be produced annually at the plant. Unique technologies and know-how handed over by the German side will be used in manufacturing the output.

The organization of cabin production in Uzbekistan will enable to make a significant step forward in the expansion of export deliveries of the enterprise, since expenses for manufacturing the end product will be reduced, and that means, its price. German specialists will monitor the quality of output.

A number of surveys and test trials of production of cabin elements at some enterprises of Uzbekistan had been carried out prior to initiation of such a large project. The German side wanted to be convinced that the quality of their product would not differ from those manufactured in Europe. Some test samples had been sent to MAN German laboratories, wh ere they underwent necessary inspections and verifications and proved their compliance with quality requirements and standards.

This is not the only localization project for MAN in Uzbekistan. The company plans to master the production of stamped, metal and plastic and a number of other automobile parts by the end of 2018, while by the end of 2020 this country will launch the production of interior and exterior of the cabin, propeller shafts, radiators, fuel tanks, steel wheels and other components.
