IFC, Renault-Nissan alliance support Russian auto parts makers, promoting economic growth

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, and the Renault-Nissan Alliance are joining forces to provide advice and technical support to auto parts makers in Russia, part of an effort to foster economic growth across the country.

IFC and Renault-Nissan will help suppliers improve their corporate governance, modernize their production facilities, and conserve resources. That will help parts makers meet international manufacturing standards and ensure their businesses remain sustainable over the long term. It will also support economic diversification in Russia; parts makers are important sources of jobs and many operate in the country’s more remote regions.

Renault-Nissan & Avtovaz create common purchasing organization in Russia

- Jointly-owned organization to oversee a defined scope of purchasing activities for Renault, Nissan and AVTOVAZ in Russia 

- Will allow partners to generate significant savings thanks to increased volumes and better pricing with suppliers

- Will strengthen global quality and competitiveness of LADA, AVTOVAZ’s iconic brand

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and AVTOVAZ today announced the establishment of a common purchasing organization in Russia. This structure will manage a defined scope of purchasing for Renault, Nissan and AVTOVAZ joint activities related to industrial equipment, powertrains and vehicles based on common platforms.

"Common Purchasing Organization” LLC (CPO) is equally owned by AVTOVAZ and Renault-Nissan Purchasing Organization (RNPO) on which it will be modeled. Established in 2001, RNPO is Renault-Nissan’s largest common organization and biggest contributor to new synergies derived from cost reductions and cost avoidance. RNPO covers all purchasing activities of both Renault and Nissan worldwide.

Like RNPO, CPO is expected to generate significant savings for the three partners in Russia thanks to increased volumes and better pricing with suppliers. CPO will use the RNPO methods and standards that have contributed to its success. RNPO generated 851 million euros in new synergies for Renault-Nissan in 2012, or about a third of total synergies.
