Now Chinese Haier has a washing machine plant and several enterprises in Naberezhnye Chelny. Last June, the first foundation stone was laid to a Haier Smart Home fridge and freezer plant in Naberezhnye Chelny.

A smart fridge plant for 4,5 billion rubles

The construction of the new Haier plant for 4,5 billion was going to end in the second quarter this year. The area of the future enterprise is over 34,000 square metres. Around half a million pieces of different equipment will be made here: fridges, freezers and chest freezers. This production site can provide more than 830 people with job.

During the foundation stone laying ceremony of yhe would-be plant, authorities noted that the smart plant will become one of the first projects of the Haier industrial park. At that moment, three plants had already been operating as part of Haier's subsidiary producing TV, washing machines and fridges.

This March, after the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, the Chinese company claimed it wasn't going to cease operations in our country and, on the contrary, announced its plans for doubling the output of fridges taking it to 400,000 pieces of this equipment.

Haier started to implement the first three projects in Naberezhnye Chelny in 2014 — investments surpassed 10 billion rubles. About 1,500 jobs were created in the enterprise's companies.
