Today, on May 13, in Taganrog, the Governor of the Rostov Region Vasily Golubev, a member of the board of directors of the New Commonwealth company Dmitry Udras and the general director of the Rostselmash trailer and mounted equipment division Alexander Vinogradov laid a symbolic stone in the foundation of the future agricultural machinery plant. The volume of investments in new production is estimated at 1.5 billion rubles.

The enterprise will produce five types of equipment: tillage, forage harvesting, grain processing, self-propelled and trailed sprayers, as well as adapters for combines. The investor plans to complete the construction of the plant in 2024.

  • Six months ago, the creation of a tractor plant in Rostov was launched, and now we are starting the construction of a high-tech production facility in Taganrog. On the site of the former combine plant, a complex for the production of modern agricultural machinery is to be created. This is another step towards expanding the national cluster of agricultural machinery. Enterprises of Rostselmash Group of Companies are already among the largest manufacturers of agricultural machinery and continue to prove it, moving forward, – said Vasily Golubev.

The head of the region emphasized the importance of creating jobs at the new production facility in Taganrog.

  • At the first stage, this is 500 jobs, with a further prospect of up to 1,500. I would like to express my gratitude to the Rostselmash company for this,” he stressed.

Dmitry Udras noted that Rostselmash, one of the largest manufacturers of agricultural machinery in the country, is once again demonstrating leadership.

  • With the construction of this plant, the introduction of new capacities, we will be able to expand the range of types of agricultural machinery produced. Rostselmash traditionally produces machines for agriculture, and we are expanding, we plan to fill the market with new types of equipment that are in demand among the villagers,” said Dmitry Udras.

The Rostselmash equipment is the most in demand among the villagers due to its efficiency.

According to Alexander Vinogradov, Director General of the Rostselmash trailer and mounted equipment division, the return of the Taganrog enterprise to the region’s agricultural engineering complex will increase the volume of output and bring the Rostov region to a new level of industrial production.

  • We expect to gradually transfer part of the production from the Rostov production site to Taganrog and by 2025 to ensure the production of about 5,000 units of finished products per year. In monetary terms, this is about 3 billion rubles a year, with the prospect of an annual increase of 10-15%. The company also plans to organize the production of new types of equipment in Taganrog, such as, for example, self-propelled sprayers,” said Alexander Vinogradov.

Recall that the government of the region consistently supports the Don agricultural machinery industry. For more than ten years, the regional program has been subsidizing the renewal of agricultural technology. This year, the amount of support has been increased by 1.5 times and will reach almost half a billion rubles.
