Mogilevtransmash (affiliated with Minsk Automobile Plant) turned out BYR 55 billion worth of commodities in January-February 2008, 28.6% up on the year, a company representative told Interfax.
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.
Over the two-month period the company produced 116 cranes (35% up on the year) and 800 trailers and semitrailers.
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.
