We traditionally stand upon our principal values – multi-vector development, significance of innovations and uncompromising quality for both our products and our business processes.
First production site of OTIS TARDA founded and established. The company starts from a small manufacturing floor, which houses limited amount of equipment and hardly fits 10 members of production personnel. The total staff of 12 people is working on the first large production project – development and manufacture of parts and components for ZAZ-1102 Tavria subcompact car by Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant (ZAZ).
Expanding the product range, the company establishes the production of parts and components for ZAZ-1102/1103/1005 Tavria subcompact cars. In 1 year of development, the total product range has increased by 70%.
OTIS TARDA begins establishing its own Design and Engineering Department aimed at performing engineering and product launch works for components produced from various plastic raw materials. The development of the company is ongoing – new computer systems, required for the development of complex units and assemblies are installed. Workshop capacities are fitted with high-level turning and milling CNC machining centers.
OTIS TARDA becomes a player in the international market of production services. The Company establishes business relations with Design Bureau of LLC ‘Rostselmash’, Russia’s leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery, on the matter of designing and manufacturing of exterior and interior parts for combine harvester coaches «ACROS 530/535/560» and «VECTOR 410/420».
Full-scale introduction of quality management system is launched at the enterprise to further endorse the highest manufacturing standards of the company. Upon the audit performed at the production site, the Company successfully passes the necessary inspections and confirms its right to own a certificate that attests to the full conformity of the production practices of the company to the standards of quality set forth by ISO 9001:2000. Methodology and requirements of the standard become the primary concern in the sphere of quality control for productions processes as well as the overall quality level of the produces themselves
OTIS TARDA launches an all-new product – inside ceiling panel for Daewoo Lanos, VAZ 21093/21099 subcompact cars, manufactured by Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant (ZAZ). The manufacturing site of the company receives extension by the construction of Pressing Workshop, equipped with high-pressure and low-pressure molding equipment supplied by the leading European and American manufacturers
The company successfully launches in production a range of exterior parts for Tractors of Series 950.3, manufactured by ‘Minsk Tractor Works’ (Belarus)
The manufacturing site of the company launches the parts produced from the ‘future of plastic materials’ – plastic polydicyclopentadiene polymer boasting high rigidity, excellent impact strength, and suitable for a wide range of applications. The production site launches a new department of Reaction Injection Molding (RIM).
The company successfully launches in production a range of exterior parts for Tractors of Series 950.1, manufactured by ‘Minsk Tractor Works’ (Belarus)
OTIS TARDA establishes its own workshop responsible for mechanical treatment and machining of its products. Total re-formatting of the previously used machining centers is underway, and the manufacturing site passes through a period of technical refurbishment and re-equipment of the production. State-of-the-art CNC machining centers by leading CNC machine manufacturers (Japan, USA, Germany, Czech Republic, Korea, Taiwan) are being installed.
The company launches its own production of sheet plastic from polycarbonate, high-impact polystyrene and ABS-plastic
Sheet plastics by OTIS TARDA begin to be manufactured under company’s own brand Tardex®.
In the process of further development and technical re-equipment, the manufacturing capabilities of the enterprise now allow producing up to 3500 tons of sheet plastics for any sphere of application per year.

The company introduces software products concerned with administrative control systems and ERP software based on 1C 8.2. –enterprise production management
OTIS TARDA performs revolutionary adjustments to the production technology of components for the outer trim of tractors (bonnet). Hefty engineering capabilities of the company allowed developing and launching the prototype of unit fabricated to RIM technology (Reaction Injection Molding) employing novel polymeric material PDCPD. This engineering solution largely improved the technological scheme of production and brought forward cost reduction in manufacturing full model range of tractors, to which the corresponding changes were applied.
Ensuring the expansion of its technical and technological capacities OTIS TARDA acquires new equipment that allows to master the injection molding technology (pressure molding). This, in its turn, permitted to embrace full production process cycle for plastic components – from raw materials to the ready goods employing every known technology of plastic processing.
