About Kamaz

Kamaz (Камский автомобильный завод - Камаз / Kamskiy avtomobilny zavod - Kama Automobile Zavod - Kamaz or KAMA Heavy-Duty Truck Production Plant) is a Russian truck manufacturer located in Naberezhnye Chelny, Tatarstan, Russian Federation. KAMAZ assembled their first truck model in February 1976 and now, 32 years later, the heavy duty models are exported to many countries including Eastern Europe, China, the Middle East, and North Africa. Its trucks are known for their simple yet functional design, robust appearance and great efficiency, winning the gruelling Dakar Rally a record seven times. Today Kamaz is the largest truck producer in Russia, and the CIS. The factory produces 93600 trucks a year (260 trucks a day).. All of the Kamaz trucks have a V8 engine, making them very powerful machines, for service in various places around the world. The Russian Army uses special reinforced Kamaz models as well.

History

In 1969 the Central Committee of the CPSU and Ministerial council of the USSR decided to begin construction of factories for the manufacture of supersized cars in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny.

Construction actually began on December 13, 1969, but the first Kamaz rolled off the main assembly conveyor on February 16, 1976.

In 1987 the line for the manufacture of Oka midget cars (VAZ-1111) was created. The first car rolled out on December 21, 1987.

On June 25, 1990 the production association was transformed into an open joint-stock company.

While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
