The first vehicle wheel from aluminum was produced on the eve of the Day of the First President in Pavlodar. The company “K&K” presented its first product.
“KiK Pavlodar” LP, which is the representative of the Russian company “K&K” started producing light alloy wheels. It is planned to implement the project with cumulative investment of KZ 6.7 bln until 2020.
“Today not only Pavlodar but all Kazakhstan began producing aluminum wheels for wheels. If Pavlodar produces 36 th tons of alloyed aluminum per year, then this production will not be enough for us and in the near future we will start producing other aluminum products”, akim of Pavlodar region Bulat Bakauov said during presentation of the product.
“In Pavlodar the production of wheels is cheaper than in Russia, first of all, because of the preferences, created in SEZ. Today in our plant there are four casting machines. We plan to install two more ones until the end of January next year. In addition, today we build a building for our own needs”, general director of “K&K” LLC Sergey Melnikov noted.
The enterprise, which is located in the special economic zone “Pavlodar”, expects to produce 1 mln wheels per year. About 50% of the output of the enterprise will be exported. 200 new workplaces will be created here.
