Russia Supplier Delegation

Project Description

The RUSSIA AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLIER DELEGATION was very successful for the participating companies.

Despite the challenging political environment 21 representatives from Tier-1 to Tier-3 suppliers, mould and tool manufacturers as well as service providors accepted our invitation to the trip. The development of the Russian automotive industry, contacts to potential clients, suppliers, local authorities as well as the exchange of experiences were on focus. The ambitious program offered to a wide range of options and the participants took advantage of it.

During the trip the automotive hubs in St. Petersburg, Moskau, Kaluga, Samara and Togliatti were visited. The delegation met with the general management and/or the responsible puchasing managers of Avtovaz, Bosch, FordSoller, General Motors, GM-Avtovaz, Gestamp, Magna, Mercedes-Benz Truck, Visteon, Volvo among others. Furthermore local authorities introcuced investment possibilities, and site conditions.
