The leader of the rechargeable industry is ready to substitute import
On equal with world brands
Turbulence in the global economy and caused by it volatility of the national currency puts to Russia the task of accelerated import substitution in industry. The Russian brand «AKOM», known to motorists of high quality accumulators, has been actively and successfully competing successfully with foreign manufacturers, thanks to which the market is saturated with a domestic product of world quality across the Russian price.
The release of accumulators AKOM was initially based on advanced technologies of such world accumulator giants, like Exidehechnologies and Johnsoncontrols, Inc. For almost two decades, production has actively developed, their own developments were carried out, the search for the best engineering solutions was carried out, a powerful distribution network was built at the same time. Just for 2015-2019. More than 1.2 billion rubles were invested in the production of AKOM, almost 100 units of advanced high-tech unique equipment were commissioned. As a result, the Russian recharge industry received a leader who works on the most advanced standards and compete with the brands of the global industry of chemical current sources.
In the All-Russian sectoral rating of Auto Industry, the AKOM brand in the level of recognition took 1st place among the Russian and 3rd place among world brands of starter batteries (after Varta and Bosch).
The large-scale release of innovative products «AKOM» became possible due to the continuous improvement of technologies and modernization of production. Today the plant is equipped with unique high-tech world-class equipment, which has no analogues in Russia and allows you to ensure the needs of the automotive battery needs with high-quality products. The National Scientific and Technical Center «AKOM» is developing batteries with the best operational and consumer characteristics, and has international accreditation recognized in European countries and Asia. The quality management system of the enterprise complies with the requirements of IATF 16949: 2016, developed by the international target automotive group, which includes 9 worldwide automakers and 5 national auto industry associations — Italy, USA, Germany, France, the United Kingdom.
The battery line of the AKOM brand includes an innovative series of batteries, differing from standard products with advanced technical characteristics: EFB (ENHANCEDFLOODBATTERY) and AGM (Absorbentglassmat). Innovative technical solutions based on the designs of these AKB provide them with a number of advantages over standard lead-acid batteries: an increased life resource, reinforced resistance to cyclic loads, corrosive processes, vibration resistance, high and low temperatures, low self-discharge. In addition, EFB and AGM batteries contribute to the development of the car market that meet the requirements for a decrease in fuel consumption and minimize the emissions of harmful exhaust gases («START-STOP», «START-STOP +»).
AKOM + EFB battery was repeatedly noted in the professional sphere of prestigious awards: «Avtokomponent of the Year-2017», «100 best goods of Russia — 2017» and «100 best goods of Russia — 2018». Winner of the National Industrial Prize «Industry-2017» under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry and Commission of Russia.
The battery is successfully tested in extreme conditions of the Ice Arctic and hot sugar. But the most important thing is the unique EFB technology from AKO’s company, he could earn the confidence and demand of thousands of motorists, as evidenced by grateful customer feedback in all regions of Russia, CIS countries and abroad. And the EFB technology itself on the Russian market is already firmly associated with the AKOM brand.
In addition, the release of a new series of modernized accumulators AKO ASIA, manufactured by advanced EFB technology specifically for cars produced by Japan, Korea and China and included in the «100 best goods of Russia 2018» as a «new year».
The choice of the quality of the batteries is evidenced by the choice of Russian and world automakers — today every second car coming back from the factory conveyor in Russia is equipped with an AKOM production battery. The plant is the only AvtoVAZ provider with a 100% need for Akb for all LADA models, 90% covers the needs of Russian Renault plants, supplies batteries to Russian Peugeot, Citroen, Haval, Opel, St. Petersburg Tractor, Liaz and Uralaz. Interaction with automakers continues — «AKOM» successfully passed the most complex audits of Hyundai, Toyota companies, Volkswagen, received a nomination for the supply of EFB batteries for Kama Kaza. Interaction with automakers of Belarus: AKOM batteries are available on MAZ, Belli (for Geely), Minsk Tractor Plant.
Currently, the production capacity of the AKO plant is 3.5 million AKB / year, which makes it possible to fully ensure the need for all consumers of the Russian Federation, both on the open market and on the conveyors of automakers, even with the complete termination of imported deliveries of AKB. At the same time, the AKOM company not only offers a huge variety of products, but also with the help of pilot production is ready to work at the request of the client: promptly develops and manufactures batteries according to individual parameters, including a small-scale release.
Rely on strong
The availability of the price of Accumulators AKOM is maintained at the expense of a whole complex of production and technological factors. Keep the balance price / quality ratio at the level attractive to the Russian motorist, the plant allows constant improvement of industrial culture, reduce costs and increase productivity. The company one of the first in the country entered the National Project «Productivity and Employment Support» and in two years increased labor productivity by 22%. At the same time, the key indicators «AKOM» reaches not by increasing the intensity of the labor of employees, but through the development of production systems, the modernization of equipment, digitalization of production.
AKOM conducts a solid policies of the localization of raw materials, materials, components and spare parts. The plant does not buy components in China, therefore, unlike other enterprises, does not depend on the cessation of industries in the subway. To date, over 90% of materials and components are purchased by an enterprise within the country, and most of their share is not only localized in the Russian Federation, but also produced by the AKO Group of Companies.
