Scania inaugurates new facility in St. Petersburg

Facility will be used for assembling and bodyworking trucks.

Scania has inaugurated a new industrial facility in St. Petersburg for assembling and bodyworking trucks to strengthen its position in the Russian market.

Scania will supply complete trucks that are adapted to the requirements and operating conditions that apply in Russia from the new Delivery Centre.

Scania Delivery Centre head in St. Petersburg Johan Balck said, this facility enables them to move the factory gate closer to the customer, shorten delivery times and greatly improve the company's customer support in the Russian market.

The St. Petersburg facility has a technical assembly capacity of about 5,000 truck chassis and 1,500 superstructures per year.

The Russian facility is the company's sixth delivery centre apart from those in South Africa, Dubai, Malaysia, Thailand and South Korea.
