In 2005, the company exported a modest $35m of farm machinery; by 2009, the figure had reached $219m. Over the last four years, exports have grown annually 1.6-fold. From January-October 2010, export growth continued, although tough weather conditions this year considerably narrowed foreign sales of new harvesters.
According to specialists, Gomselmash’s production of grain harvesters has enabled it to advance to the top five manufacturers of farm machinery, exporting to 25 countries. Fourteen joint ventures assemble Gomselmash machinery abroad: in Russia, Kazakhstan, China, Argentina and elsewhere.
