The Russian company Avtotor, which assembled BMW, Kia and Hyundai cars at its plant in Kaliningrad, provided employees with a site for landscaping.
According to the company ‘s official website , in order to “provide additional social support to employees of the company” employees are offered plots of 10 acres.
For this purpose, two plots of land with a total area of 300 hectares have been allocated, which are owned by the company near two local villages. On one of the arrays “168 plots were distributed by lot”.
“In order to ensure the future harvest in the gardens of the plant workers, Avtotor has organized the sale of high-quality seed potatoes of domestic production,” the statement reads.
The company explains this step by the “difficult economic situation in which the company found itself.”
As previously reported, the Russian company “Avtotor” was forced to send employees on paid corporate leave in the period from 1 to 22 May. The company remained the last major manufacturer of foreign cars in Russia, except Chinese.
On March 1, the BMW Group announced the cessation of supplies to the Russian market and local car production due to Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine.
Since its inception, many foreign automakers have announced the cessation of local car production in Russia and their import into the country. As a result, as of April, only about a third of Russia’s car plants were producing cars. Джерело: https://biz.censor.net/n3339269
