Gomselmash to increase deliveries of machine sets to Kazakhstan in 2010
GOMEL, 19 November (BelTA) – In 2010 the Gomselmash Production Association will deliver at least 300 machine sets to the Kostanai diesel plant. This is 1.5 times up from 2008. The agreement was reached during the negotiations with representatives of the Agromashholding company, Gomselmash’s main partner in Kazakhstan, BelTA learnt from Igor Korotkevich, the chief of the Gomselmash sale department.
Cooperation between Gomselmash and the Kostanai diesel plant started in 2008. Then the Kostanai plant assembled 56 КЗР-740 ЕSSIL harvesters designed on the basis of the Belarusian КЗС-7 combine harvester.
According to Igor Korotkevich, the equipment has proved efficient during the harvesting campaign in Kazakhstan. The harvesters received positive reviews especially their reliability. This factor played a crucial role in increasing the output as the volume of deliveries directly correlates with the number of orders from agricultural companies.
