Project Description

PSA Peugeot Citroën and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (the “Sponsors”) are building a car factory in the Kaluga region. The SKD phase was launched in March 2010. When fully operational in 2013, the factory will employ around 3,000 people with a planned capacity of up to 125,000 units per year. The cars produced will be mid-sized passenger cars and SUVs sold under the brands Peugeot, Citroën and Mitsubishi.

Transition Impact

The Project will have a substantial impact on training and skills in the Kaluga region and beyond. The Sponsors have already started to implement a large training programme necessary to bring the intended 3,000 staff up to their standards.

The Sponsors intend to source components locally to the extent possible. The size of the plant will foster the growth of the auto parts suppliers’ industry in Russia, a development which holds the key to making the local automotive industry competitive as a whole. The localisation of content is likely to take place through international suppliers, who will bring their own technology and expertise to Russia, as well as through Russian suppliers. The interaction with PCMA Rus, a highly demanding client on quality, reliability and price issues, will set a challenging benchmark for suppliers.
