    Jeudi 23 Juillet 2009 -- La fabrication de voitures en Algérie sera pour bientôt, a affirmé, hier à Alger, le ministre de l’Industrie et de la Promotion des investissements, Abdelhamid Temmar. Le ministre a notamment indiqué à la presse, en marge de l’université d’été de la communauté nationale à l’étranger, que « les négociations avec des grandes firmes étrangères sont en cours pour la fabrication de voitures en Algérie ». « Il ne s’agit pas de montage de véhicules, mais de la fabrication de voitures algériennes », a-t-il précisé, ajoutant que « les accords avec des partenaires étrangers seront conclus avant la fin octobre de l’année en cours ».

    August 10, 2009 (Bloomberg) -- Aabar Investments PJSC, an Abu Dhabi government-backed investor, said it will work with MAN Ferrostaal AG, Daimler AG and three other German manufacturers to develop vehicle and engine factories in Algeria. The group intends to assemble as many as 10,000 cars and trucks a year as Algeria builds its industrial base, Aabar said in a statement today after signing an agreement with the North African country. MAN Ferrostaal will lead the group, which includes Deutz AG, MTU Aero Engines Holding AG and Rheinmetall AG, Aabar said. Some of the companies will provide licenses and intellectual property to the venture, the investment firm said. Assembly is expected to start in 2010 after plants are built or modernized in Tiaret, Ain Smara and Oued Hamimine. Aabar bought a 9.1 percent stake in Daimler in March, making it the Stuttgart, Germany-based carmaker’s biggest shareholder. Aabar’s largest stakeholder, the Abu Dhabi government-owned International Petroleum Investment Co., owns 70 percent of MAN Ferrostaal.

    August 10, 2009 (afrol News) -- Algeria could become Africa's major production plant for German vehicles and engines following the signing of a major deal that will involve at least five German plants. The signing between the United Arab Emirates investment, Aabar and German companies will see three manufacturing plants being constructed in Algeria for the production of vehicles and engines on the basis of German licences.

    The Algerian Prime Minister announced that the Abu Dhabi investment company Aabar and the Algerian Ministries of Defence and Industry have concluded a memorandum of understanding with five German companies relating to the construction and operation of manufacturing plants in the country.

    “Aabar are delighted to be working with the Algerian government and some of Germany’s leading technology companies on this exciting new venture. With this important investment, Aabar continues to develop opportunities through our partnership with Daimler,” said Khadem Al Qubaisi, Aabar’s Chairman.

    The statement released by the company said it is intended that MAN Ferrostaal will carry out the entire project as general contractor. According to Aarbar, the company is expected to modernise and build production facilities in Tiaret, Ain Smara and Oued Hamimine. "After this, assembly equipment for the manufacture of vehicles and engines is to be installed. It is envisaged that MAN Ferrostaal will subsequently manage their operation in joint venture companies which have yet to be established," the statement said.

    Daimler, Deutz, MTU Friedrichshafen and Rheinmetall are all said to be involved in the project as technology partners, providing licences and proprietary rights, as well as parts sets for the manufacture of the vehicles and engines that are supplied from Germany.

    "With the support of these partners, it is intended that the portion of local production in Algeria can be gradually increased over time, for example by identifying and using domestic suppliers. Specific products to be manufactured are the Sprinter, Unimog, G-Class and other all-wheel drive vehicles as well as engines," the Aabar statement said.

    DUBAI, August 10, 2009 -- United Arab Emirates' Aabar Investments said Monday it signed a deal with Algeria and five German companies including MAN Ferrostaal and Daimler AG to make all-terrain vehicles and trucks in North Africa. The agreement will eventually create a joint venture company between Aabar and German plant builder MAN Ferrostaal to operate the car plants in Algeria, MAN Ferrostaal said in a separate statement. The Algerian venture will make up to 10,000 vehicles and trucks a year, with work expected to start in 2010. Aabar bought a stake in German carmaker Daimler earlier this year. Neither company gave a value for the deal and Aabar chairman Khadem Al Qubaisi declined to comment when called. Algeria's Ministries of Defense and Industry, which signed the deal, didn't return calls for comment. Aabar and MAN Ferrostaal are both majority-owned by the Abu Dhabi government's International Petroleum Investment Co., or IPIC, which invests the emirate's oil wealth. MAN Ferrostaal will build three vehicle and engine manufacturing plants and modernize others - in Tiaret, Ain Smara and Oued Hamimine - while four other German firms will provide parts and licenses for the vehicles. Daimler, Deutz AG, MTU, and Rheinmetall will act as technology partners in the deal, providing licenses and intellectual property, Aabar said. "It is intended that the portion of local production in Algeria can be gradually increased over time, for example by identifying and using domestic suppliers," MAN Ferrostaal said. "The products which have been identified for potential manufacturing include Sprinter, Unimog, G-Type and other four wheel drive vehicles and engines," Aabar said. Mercedes-Benz, a unit of Daimler, produces a range of Unimog trucks, which are multipurpose four-wheel drive trucks vehicles for off-road purposes and as military vehicles. "Aabar continues to develop opportunities through our partnership with Daimler," Aabar chairman Al Qubaisi said in the statement. Aabar became the biggest shareholder in Daimler in March when it bought a 9.1% stake in the company and said it would pursue joint projects. In July, Aabar bought 40% of Daimler's stake in electric car start-up Tesla Motors. It also bought in July a 32% stake in Virgin Group's space travel unit Virgin Galactic and said it would create the world's first commercial spaceline with Virgin. Initially created to invest in oil and gas, Aabar has become a diversified investment vehicle for the Abu Dhabi government. It is majority-owned by IPIC, which owns 70% of MAN Ferrostaal.

    Mardi 11 Août 2009 -- Le fonds d'investissement public d'Abou Dhabi, Aabar Investments, s'est associé avec cinq firmes allemandes pour produire jusqu'à 10.000 véhicules par an en Algérie, rapporte mardi la presse. L'accord, qui inclut le gouvernement algérien, est le dernier d'une série d'investissements d'Aabar, qui avait pris en mars 9,5% dans le groupe automobile allemand Daimler et fin juillet 32% des parts de Virgin Galactic, une compagnie spécialisée dans le tourisme spatial appartenant à Virgin Group du milliardaire britannique Richard Branson. Selon le quotidien The National d'Abou Dhabi, qui cite un communiqué d'Aabar, Daimler est associé au projet ainsi que la firme allemande MAN Ferrostaal et les ministères algériens de l'Industrie et de la Défense. Une compagnie soeur d'Aabar, l'International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC), contrôle 70% de MAN Ferrostaal, ajoute le journal. MAN Ferrostaal va diriger le projet qui implique outre Daimler, Rheinmetall, le fabricant de moteurs Deutz et MTU Aero Engines Holding, ajoute le journal, selon lequel le montant de l'investissement d'Aabar n'a pas été révélé. Trois sites de production sont prévus. Certains seront créés et d'autres installés dans d'anciennes usines qui seront modernisées. La production de camions et de voitures doit démarrer dès l'année prochaine et une partie pourrait servir à équiper l'armée algérienne.

    Mercredi 12 Août 2009 -- Le fonds d'investissement public d'Abou Dhabi, Aabar Investments, a conclu un accord avec le gouvernement algérien et cinq firmes allemandes pour produire jusqu'à 10.000 véhicules par an en Algérie. La nouvelle annoncée, hier, dans un communiqué d'Aabar Investments est de nature à réjouir le gouvernement algérien. Celui-ci, fâché avec les importations et particulièrement celles des véhicules, trouve enfin le «bon exemple» à donner: des entreprises qui investissent et qui prennent un marché pratiquement garanti et apportent une contrepartie sérieuse. Si la rumeur qu'un grand constructeur automobile européen serait prêt à s'engager en Algérie avec la nouvelle formule 51-49%, se confirmait, l'effet sera important. Les pouvoirs publics qui subissent des vives critiques au sujet d'un retour au dirigisme pourraient ainsi signifier aux autres constructeurs automobiles la «bonne voie» à suivre. Même si cette «bonne voie» a tardé à s'imposer à un pouvoir qui n'a fait pendant des années que professer la religion des IDE en ouvrant allègrement le marché algérien. L'accord conclu avec Aabar est sans doute l'un des meilleurs jamais obtenu dans ce domaine. Et il conforte les autorités qui veulent signifier aux constructeurs automobiles que le temps des largesses est fini. Et que l'accès au marché dépend d'un engagement substantiel dans l'économie algérienne.

    Les allemandes se placent

    L'annonce d'Aabar Investments correspond bien au souhait, vains jusqu'à présent, des pouvoirs publics de favoriser une production qui permet de créer des emplois tout en répondant à des besoins locaux - dont ceux de l'armée - en voitures et camions. Le fait que ces investisseurs s'engagent en dépit de l'image extérieure, peu réjouissante de l'Algérie, est donc un bon signe. Il est intéressant de noter qu'Aabar a pris en mars dernier une participation de 9,1% dans le groupe automobile allemand Daimler. Dans cet accord dans lequel les ministères de l'Industrie et de la Défense sont associés, Aabar draine plusieurs entreprises allemandes. Outre Daimler, on retrouve la firme allemande MAN Ferrostaal, qui est contrôlée à 70% par la maison mère, d'Aabar, l'International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC). Il y a également Rheinmetall, le fabricant de moteurs Deutz et MTU Aero Engines Holding. Les travaux pourraient commencer en 2010 après la modernisation et le développement d'usines à Tiaret, Aïn Smara et Oued Hamimine. Selon un journal d'Abou Dhabi, l'accord prévoit la création de trois joint-ventures dont l'une produira des véhicules militaires Mercedes. Le coût de l'investissement pourrait être de 720 millions de dollars, selon le journal Al-Rouaya Al Iqtissadia, citant le président d'Aabar, Khadem Al Qubaisi. Celui-ci, contacté par les agences de presse après l'annonce de la nouvelle, s'est abstenu de confirmer ou d'infirmer le chiffre. Brigitte Bertam, porte-parole de Daimler, a expliqué qu'au début, le gouvernement algérien sera le «client» et relève que son objectif est de créer des emplois. On a donc attendu Emaar avec ses mirifiques projets de près de 30 milliards de dollars, on a eu Aabar. Avec des ambitions plus modestes mais assurément plus sérieuses.

    August 13, 2009 (PANA) -- The Algerian Ministry of Defence and the Emirate group Aabar have signed an agreement to manufacture military vehicles according to a report by a body of the National Popular Army (ANP) published in the El Djeich newspaper.

    Koubeissi Khadem, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Aabar, quoted by the Arab newspaper in its latest issue, said the contract totalled US$ 720 million, a share of which will be pumped into the Tiaret plant in the centre of the country. The Tiaret complex will spend 120 million euros to produce 10,000 vehicles in two years, while armored engines will also be produced at a cost of 200 million euros. The site, taken back by the army following a decision by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika in July, was expected to host, for about 20 years, the project of the assembly line of FIAT which never materialised.

    The public investment funding of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, Aabar Investments, partnered with five German companies is projected to produce about 10,000 vehicles per year. Director of Military Industries, Colonel Rachid Chouaki signed the agreement with the representatives of the Emirate and German companies. The German companies, Man Ferrostaal, Daimler, Deutz MTU and Rheinmetall will handle the engineering aspects of the project. To deliver on these projects, three joint stock companies have been created by Algerian, German and Emirate groups.

    Besides the Tiaret complex, two other plants located in Constantine in the east were invited by the new partners of Algeria to manufacture light and armoured vehicles. The Ministry of Industry is also involved in the project through the National Company of Commercial Vehicles (SNVI), which already manufactures trucks and buses in Rouiba, 30 km east of Algiers.

    It is expected that these partnerships will boost the sub-contracting sector in Algeria, which generates four million euros, through SNVI's activities. Algeria plans to adopt a policy of industrial clusters, aimed at gathering industries of the same purpose in the same place. This is also advocated by the Union of Professionals in the Automobile and Engineering Industry, its chairman, Brahim Bendras, said in an interview. Algeria has not yet embarked on the assembly of cars, despite contacts with Iranian, Korean and Chinese manufacturers.

    The CEO of Man Ferrostaal, Mathias Michels and the officer in charge of the logistics of the armed forces of the United Arab Emirates, General Fares Mohamed Ahmed Mezroui in July attended the signing ceremony of the agreement in Algiers, along with the Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Defence, Abdelmalek Guenaizia.
