MOSCOW, November 21 (RIA Novosti) – Kamaz is considering setting up an
assembly line to produce 500 trucks annually in Cuba, Russia's largest
truck maker said Friday.
"To further develop the automobile business in Cuba and strengthen
Kamaz's place on the country's market, we and the Cuban side are
considering the possibility of establishing a trade and service company
to sell, service and repair Kamaz trucks, as well as an assembly
facility with a production capacity of 500 trucks a year," Kamaz said in
a press release.
Over 200 Kamaz trucks have been delivered to Cuba in 2008 as part of a
Russian loan to the country.

models of trucks, as well as trailers, buses, tractors and spare parts.
It also manufactures engines, power units, and components.
The company has assembly facilities in Poland, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan,
Ethiopia, Vietnam and Ukraine.
