In October 9th, 1967 the first dipper of soil for the excavation pit is extracted, beginning the construction of Avtonormal plant. Gorky Design and Engineering Technological Institute became the Master developer.
In 1970 the first parts were manufactured on temporary ground of automatic and spring production untis. The first nomenclature batch was sent to VAZ.
On January 18th, 1971 by order of the minister of automotive industry of the USSR No. 17 Avtonormal has started working – the first phase of the main building has been commissioned. Its area was 30.1 thousand square meters.
In 1973 we began assimilating of parts for Kamsky zavod of heavy haulers. By the middle 70s we assimilated whole nomenclature of parts necessary for KAMAZ trucks configurations.
From the construction and to the middle 80s the plant has been equipped and technically upgraded with imported equipment. In 1978 the technical upgrade has been shifted to the manufacture of equipment in-house. For that purpose we built and launched specialized machine tool production. Equipment that was manufactured there is still working today.
