Featured projects

Jan. 22 2014

The joint venture between ZF Friedrichshafen AG and Kamaz, Russia’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer, celebrated the official opening of a modern production facility.

Founded in 2005, the joint venture, in which ZF has a 51 % share and Kamaz 49 %, currently produces manual ZF transmissions belonging to the Ecosplit (16-speed version) and Ecomid (nine-speed) product families – more than 95 % for Kamaz, but also for other Russian manufacturers and trucks produced locally by importers. The relocation to the new building expands ZF Kama’s plant grounds from previously 4,000 to around 20,000 square meters, approximately by five times. This also significantly increases the volumes produced by the joint venture. In 2016, up to 50,000 Ecosplit and Ecomid transmissions will come off the line in Naberezhnye Chelny per year, compared to previously 20,000 units.

The partners will have made a joint investment of €90 million in the location by 2016.

More than 200 new jobs planned.


Kamaz is the market leader in the Russian truck industry. It ranks 13th among the world’s heavy trucks manufacturers and comes 8th among the producers of diesel engines. Today, the Kamaz Group comprises more than 150 organizations located in Russia, the CIS, and other nations. Moreover, Kamaz engages in joint ventures with leading manufacturers of automotive components, including ZF Kama (transmissions), Cummins Kama (engines), Knorr-Bremse Kama (brake systems), and Federal Mogul Naberezhnye Chelny (cylinder assemblies).

In total, Kamaz Group employs more than 55,000 employees.
