The Deputy Head of the Rostov-on-Don City Administration continues to acquaint with the enterprises and organizations of the southern capital. As part of the business trip, Dmitry Chernyshov visited one of the oldest production facilities in Rostov – the Tenth Bearing Plant.
The history of the plant begins in 1938. Today, the enterprise specializes in the production of various types of bearings and automotive components. The range of products includes more than 150 types of bearings. Moreover, bearings of the Tenth Bearing Plant are used in cars, tractors, agricultural machines, locomotives, processing equipment, and electrical and metallurgical industries.
Consumers of the Tenth Bearing Plant’s products are automotive and tractor plants in Russia and Belarus: KAMAZ, GAZ, UAZ, UralAZ, BelAZ, MAZ, MTZ, ChTZ. The Tenth Bearing Plant delivers the products to Poland, the Baltic States and Kazakhstan.
In 2016, the plant mastered the production of six new bearing types, including three for the KAMAZ enterprise and the Minsk Automobile Plant, and two for the far abroad states. Also, the plant has received the order of KAMAZ for the production of two more types of bearings under the import substitution program.
At present, the Tenth Bearing Plant is the country’s leader for the production of rolling bearings: roller bearings with short cylindrical rollers, needle bearings, cardan and automotive components.
However, several years ago, JSC GPZ-Estate and JSC GPZ-Invest were created on the basis of the Tenth Bearing Plant’s production site, with the buildings and facilities, as well as its own developed infrastructure and engineering networks.
At the moment, the tenants of the areas include more than 240 different enterprises and organizations producing consumer goods and catering, as well as repair shops and transport companies. Today, about 4,000 employees work at these companies.
During the working visit, the Deputy Head of the Rostov-on-Don City Administration has also visited one of the largest companies renting space in this area – Bonum Company. It should be noted that the plant is one of the country’s leaders for the production of semi-trailer tanks. In addition, the company’s products received the Made on Don Quality Mark.
Summing up the meeting, Dmitry Chernyshov noted that in the current economic conditions, it is extremely important not to lose, but to preserve the production that had grown over the years, and to properly allocate available resources. In this case, it was about the fact that the management gave the plant a second chance and other enterprises – the opportunity to settle into the territory of the giant Tenth Bearing Plant.
