Autoneum expands with production foothold in Russia

February 28, 2013

Autoneum, a Swiss thermal and acoustic nonwovens insulation company, is boosting its local presence with a production plant in Russia.

Starting in the fall of 2013, Autoneum will be producing acoustic and thermal components in Ryazan for the growing Russian automobile market. Ryazan is located about 200 kilometers southeast of Moscow.

The recently founded subsidiary Autoneum Rus LLC and the new plant in Ryazan make it possible to produce acoustic and thermal components for automobile manufacturers in Russia.

The new plant benefits from its central location and good connections with the three large automotive clusters in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Togliatti (Samara). Series parts production startup in Ryazan is scheduled for the fall of 2013. Workforce figures at the new plant should reach about 200 by 2017.

“The automobile market in Russia has strong growth potential," says Autoneum CEO Martin Hirzel. "As a local supplier with the related customer proximity, we are in an ideal position to make the most of this potential.”
