Mogilevtransmash (affiliated with Minsk Automobile Plant) turned out 463 truck-mounted cranes in January-August 2008, or 27.5% up on the year, a company representative told Interfax.
Over the period in question the company produced 3,800 machines, or 15.4% up.
In monetary terms, the company turned out BYR 238.7 billion worth of goods (31% up).
They attribute the production increase to the large-scale retooling campaign launched three years ago.
The production upgrade programme aims to diversify the range of trailers Mogilev produces for MAZ trucks by Minsk Automobile Plant.
The upgrade enabled the company to launch a hydraulic crane series in addition to truck trailers. Last year Mogilevtransmash would produce 370 trailers and 47 truck-mounted cranes on a monthly basis.
Mogilevtransmash was founded in 1982 and privatised in April 2004. In February 2005 the company merged with Belarus' leading truck producers MAZ.
The company specializes in producing various types of trailers and hydraulic cranes.
