WSI is entering into collaboration with MAZ (Minsk Automobile Plant) in Belarus. MAZ is a government enterprise that was established in 1939 in Minsk. With its 20,000 employees, MAZ is one of the largest transport manufacturers in Eastern Europe. The company produces heavy trucks, buses, trolley buses, tag axels and trailers for trucks and cranes. In addition to being active in the CIS countries, MAZ also has factories in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.
This year marks MAZ’s 75th anniversary, which will be celebrated in style on 4 August. Especially for this diamond jubilee, MAZ, in collaboration with WSI Models, will be producing two brand new scale models. The first model that WSI Models will be developing for MAZ in 1:50 scale is the 5440 4×2 in silver. The second model is the MAZ 6430 6×4 in blue. The first new models will be introduced during the MAZ jubilee celebrations. After that, the samples will be on display at the stands of M&N Models and SA Models during the “Avtokomposit” fair in Moscow from 3 to 7 June. The models will be available worldwide at MAZ dealers and the familiar WSI points of sale in the autumn of 2014.
