Vedomosti.- Avtovaz has a total number of 35,028 employees, as told by the company chairman Yves Karakatzanis during his presentation. The speech took place at a plant managers meeting, which was televised by the LADA TV Channel, belonging to the company. Accordingly, the number of workforce has shrunk by 8% year-on-year, down from 38,070 people in 2018.
Car production has also shrunk in 2019. The production figure has fallen at the Togliatti plant by 8.7% to 413,000 units. The reduction in the orders of partners has been shown as the reason behind the decline in the presentation, drawing attention to the production of Renault and Datsun automobiles at the enterprise, alongside Lada. The production also shrank at the Izhevsk plant, manufacturing the Lada Vesta family, by 2.2% to 128,000 units, as stated in the presentation.
