KAZAN, June 23 (RIA Novosti) - Russian truck maker KamAZ suspended its main assembly line on Tuesday after completing its orders for June, the company's press office said.
"The factory has assembled 1,600 auto sets. In the coming days, the factory's final production units dealing with the rollout and dispatch of products will complete the fulfillment of the June plan of 1,700 vehicles and spare parts worth 320.5 million rubles [$10.1 million]," the press office said.
The ongoing global financial and economic crisis has caused a slump in world demand for vehicles. Since the start of the year, the Volga-based truck producer has been working only to concrete orders.
KamAZ last suspended its operations in late May, the most recent of several stoppages over the past 18 months.
