During the International industrial exhibition “Innoprom – 2017” CEO SEZ “Titanium valley” Artemiy Kyzlasov and CEO CMS (Italy) Marco Acheti signed the memorandum of understanding. The machine tool manufacturer intends to localize the production of NC machine tools for composite materials at the territory of the perspective second stage of SEZ “Titanium valley”,
CMS produces equipment and NC machine tools for aluminum and composite materials used in aviation, automobile and ship-building industries. Italian company has been a partner of the Ural Civil Aviation factory for years and is also developing relations with UAC, “Russain Helicopters” and Rosatom.
The company considers localization of production in view of the import-substitution policy. Under this policy, Russian governmental companies will have to provide the priority to the products “made in Russia” since 2019.
Marco Acheti, President CMS:
“Russian is one of five biggest machine tool markets. Though due to the import-substitution policy the export has already decreased for over 25%. At the same time Russian producers are not ready to produce the needed equipment in the needed quantity and this opens perspectives for CMS development in Russia. Localization in the SEZ “Titanium valley” will not only provide the package of tax preferences but also enable us to cooperate with Ural Civil Aviation Works. The industrial specialization of the platform will also provide good perspectives for developing partnership with other companies of the industry”.
Artemiy Kyzlasov, CEO SEZ “Titanium valley”:
“I am glad to see that the second stage of SEZ “Titanium valley” has a growing demand among the companies of the aviation industry. Aviation components production is our main industrial specialization and the process of “clusterization” is clearly seen now. The components producers snowball the avionics producers, they snowball the producers of equipment and machine tools which might also develop their competence in service in the region”.
Holding “Russian Helicopters”, Holding “Technodinamika”, Ural Civil aviation works have alredy expressed the intention to localize production already expressed at the territory of the second stage of the SEZ “Titanium valley”.
The second stage of the SEZ “Titanium valley” is now being created The Ural Civil aviation works will become an anchor resident of the platform “Uktus”.
The perspective second stage of the Special Economic Zone “Titanium valley” (platform “Uktus”) is now being created at the territory of the airport “Uktus” and the nearby territories. The total square is 100 ha. The government of the Sverdlovsk region and the managing company of the Special Economic Zone “Titanium valley” are now forming a proposal to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russian Federation. 202,44 mln.rub was given for the land property deal, 300 mln.rub. was further given for the renovation of the infrastructure. Platform “Uktus” is considered to become SEZ “Titanium valley” in the third-fourth quarter of 2018.
Perspectives of further cooperation and development of the aviation cluster will be discussed at the conference during the aviation salon MAKS-2017 July 19th at the conference “Challenge accepted: specific conditions for development of aviation companies in Russia”.
