Russian Market Remains Interesting


Schuler shows comprehensive system solutions at the trade fair Metalloobrabotka in Moscow / New Service company in Tolyatti

Russia continues to be an interesting market for Schuler: Apart from the automotive and supplier industry, aerospace, the energy industry, the rail sector and coin mints are among the customers. The Group, including the former Umformtechnik Erfurt and Müller Weingarten AG, has supplied around 8,000 presses to the Soviet Union and its successor states.

At the trade fair Metalloobrabotka from 15 to 19 May 2017 in Moscow, the world market leader in forming technology will be presenting its comprehensive system solutions for sheet metal forming and forging. “Schuler not only offers the press, but also the right automation solution, dies, process know-how and on-site service for the requirements and challenges of our customers,” says Schuler manager Jochen Früh, who is in charge for the Russian market.

Additionally to the Muscovite representation of Schuler, which was founded in 2010, a new Service company in Tolyatti, near Samara on the Volga, opened for business at the beginning of the year. It offers Russian customers extensive services for mechanical and hydraulic presses, as well as for forming equipment of all manufacturers. The range of services includes repairs, maintenance, electrical and mechanical refits, machine relocations, modernizations and performance enhancements, as well as spare parts and the sale of used presses.

Tolyatti is one of Russia’s major economic centers and home to Russia’s largest car manufacturer AvtoVAZ (“Lada”). The office in Moscow is still responsible for the sale of new machines.
