HistoryEdit

Construction began in 1945, using forced labor, notably Polish Home Army prisoners,[1] with the first conveyor coming online with the first truck ZIS-150 (KAZ-150) coming off on August 18, 1951.

In 2006 the major part of the company synced with the Georgian Industrial Group and was named the Kutaisi Auto Mechanical Plant (KAMP).[2] Today the factory produces a wide range of automotive industry parts.[3]
