Due to the increase in production volumes in 2022, the Kremenchug Automobile Plant began to recruit personnel and is ready to pay them a salary of 15-25 thousand hryvnia. The current employees are also promised to raise their salaries from January.
AvtoKrAZ needs specialists of different specialties: welders, painters, machine operators, locksmiths. We also need specialists who were not previously at the plant – for 3D-modeling, programmers, operators of large electronic complexes.
This was stated by the general director of “AvtoKrAZ” Roman Chernyak in an interview with the Kremenchug newspaper.
“Our task is to produce not just cars, but high quality cars that would compete with foreign counterparts. Quality and people are what we need. People want a salary that also competes with others. We go for it. We are ready to pay UAH 15-25 thousand to the hands of specialists in new specialties, those who come to work with us, “he said.
Chernyak also said that from January 1, the company is ready to raise the salaries of all employees. It will rise to the level of the average salary in mechanical engineering and the average salary in the city.
AvtoKrAZ does not disclose production statistics. However, in recent months a number of new contracts for the plant have been reported. In early December, a batch of KrAZ-6322 all-wheel drive three-axle trucks was sent to the European Union. Also, the production of geolocation trailers for the control system of unmanned trucks, which operate in the quarries of the Ferrexpo enterprises, has been mastered. And the Armed Forces of Ukraine recently purchased two KrAZ Cougar armored vehicles.
Earlier this year, AvtoKrAZ signed a three-year contract for the supply of heavy vehicles and spare parts for the US Army Contracting Command.
