Approximately €100 million will be invested, in order to fulfil the development plan at Voronezh plant.
“Russia is an important market for us and with the support of the state company Rostec, one of our key partners, we will continue to develop, taking the opportunities the market has to offer to us” – said the executive vice-president and the general director of Pirelli: Marco Tronchetti Provera.
