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.

The key to success in these challenging markets? Modern, robust cars that are truly affordable to first-time buyers – manufactured in clever, “cost-breakthrough” ways that significantly reduce the use of scarce natural resources.

China looks to the wind for its power

China looks to the wind for its power

China is turning to natural resources to generate electricity. In 2012, the country’s wind farms generated more electricity than nuclear power plants for the first time. And while the difference – two per cent – was small, it is likely the gap will widen dramatically over the next few years as wind surges ahead.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and the BRICs

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and the BRICs

Since the Renault-Nissan Alliance began in 1999, emerging markets have become a pillar of growth for the auto industry. In 1999, Brazil, Russia, India and China(the “BRICs”) represented only 8% of the total industry volume. In 2012, these four countries represented 36% of global vehicles sales. China, which registered 600,000 car sales in 1999, became the world’s biggest car market last year with about 18 million units. Renault-Nissan sold 8.1 million vehicles in 2012, with about 30% generated from the four BRICs. The Alliance accelerates this emerging market expansion enabling each partner to gain brand awareness with millions of customers aspiring to own their first car. But each market presents unique challenges and for the Alliance, the approach differs from country to country.
