Automobile & Car
The company first started production of LP buses, the chassis of which were imported from Germany and assembled them in the current northern factory of Iran Khodro. In the following, a summery of events taken place since 1966 and achievements of the company during these years can be read.
In 1966, Iran Khodro signed a contract with the English company of Rootes to make a sedan named ‘Paykan’. A year later the car making company of ‘Iran National’ was established with the capital of 40 thousand dollars, benefiting from a land for the factory, new and old machineries and bank credit to assemble 10 passenger cars and 7 buses and trucks on a daily basis.
From 1967 to 1978 Paykan was assembled in different models of basic, deluxe, sport, station and pick-up, and buses were made as urban 302, rural and super deluxe. There were also minibuses and ambulances made in the then ‘Iran National’. Production raised form the very start and it amounted to 98000 sets of Paykan in 1977.
In 1973, localization of car parts and self-sufficiency was set as the main goal and strategy of the company, based on which the companies of Ball bearing, Piston, Tabriz IDEM, Mashad Reza and a casting factory were built.
In 1974, simultaneous with the increasing price of oil and exchange revenues, ‘Iran National’ chose to assemble Peugeot cars. It was in the same year that the company’s shares were introduced to Tehran Stock Exchange, giving up 45 percent of the shares to the public.
In late 1977, the company held talks with France’s Peugeot to replace Paykan, which had passed its time, with Peugeot 305. By the end of the next year, the Islamic revolution of Iran took place and the new government took the hold of all industries and according to the Islamic Revolution Council law of Iran Industries Protection and Development ratified in 1980, ‘Iran National’ due to its nature as an industrial company was sheltered by the National Industries Organization and managed by Ministry of Industries. This was when Iraq started the imposed war against Iran and the trend of foreign exchange and economical setbacks like lack of raw material import, low quality of products, delayed supply and worn-out machineries in the company extended up to 1982.
1983 can be recalled as a productive year with no specific barrier in the process of production and this came about as the Ministry of Industry was in good shape regarding the acquired strategies and stable foreign exchange condition. Meanwhile, this production growth could be seen in other industries as well.
Unlike 1983, 1985 started with a limp in foreign exchange earnings and signs of industrial, economical and production crisis could be seen everywhere, putting the company at the risk of shutting down in early 1986.
Two years later in 1988, Iran-Iraq war ended. This was when a three-year contract for the production of Peugeot 405 sedan was inked under the supervision of IDRO (Iran’s Industries Development and Renovation Organization) and the Ministry of Industries.
In 1989, simultaneous with Iran’s government emphasis on the production of public vehicles, two major developments took place. First, Peugeot shop in Iran Khodro was converted in order to produce 6000 sets of buses in two working shifts in a year. Second, in search of a replacement for Paykan powertrain as Iran Khodro rolled Paykan off the production line concurrent with Tablbot Company being closed, Peugeot 504 engine was mounted on Paykan, which was then named ‘Paykageot’ and finally ‘Paykan1800′.
In 1991, Paykan was back on production line and SAPCO (Supplying Automotive Parts Company of Iran Khodro) was founded.
1994 was the year of big development as Iran Khodro set down a 7-year program and the annual production of 300,000 sets. One of the strategic goals, considered in the 7-year program, was constant quality improvement followed by ISO 9000 standard project, processed in the company. Different production units in Iran Khodro could meet ISO 9000 requirements by 1998. Qualitative and quantitative boost in the production of domestic automotive parts was also achieved when SAPCO was established. And finally, Iran Khodro research and development center, built up with noticeable capital investment can be counted as another development, resulting in the creation of Samand sedan.
In 2002, Iran Khodro compiled a 10-year program directing at globalization and for this planned on its strategic goals of quality improvement, product diversity specially Samand models, Paykan phase-out, price consistency, competitiveness and inward technology transfer. Cost reduction, strong presence in domestic market and export development can also be considered as other objectives that were followed seriously. In this year also, the mass production of Samand as the national car started.
In 2003, Pars and Samand models of the year and Peugeot 206 sedan were put into production.
In 2004, Iran Khodro started to practice the SAP software as an enterprise resource planning system in order to improve productivity and planning to acquire a better control over final operations. It was in this year that the two sedans of Pars ELX and Samand Lx were introduced to the market.
Paykan phase-out in 2005 is regarded as a turning point in the company’s history technology-wise, working it out toward better customer satisfaction. Peugeot 206 sedan, Roa sedan enjoying optimized OHV engine and Samand Sarir limo were also marketed this year. In the meantime, Iran Khodro designed its CNG-based engine and targeted for global markets.
In 2006, the national engine production line and Samand sedan production lines in Azerbaijan, Belarus and Syria were put into production. Meanwhile, Tondar 90 sedan (Renault Logan) joined Iran Khodro cars, thereby; the product portfolio was no longer limited to Peugeot cars. Samand project in Venezuela also commenced this year.
Iran Khodro received the EFQM Award in 2007. The production lines in the city of Tabriz, Senegal and Venezuela were inaugurated in the same year and as a new car, the company introduced Samand Soren to the market.
In 2008, IKCO designed Runna. It was in the same year that the company was elected as the Top Exporter and received Export National Award and a crystal trophy for Iran’s Best Research and development Sector.
The role of IKCO in boosting car production volume in the country was quite tangible in 2009. Focus on global sales led to a 40% growth in IKCO car export through IKCO network. Meanwhile, Iran Khodro designed and prototyped a car that enjoyed nanotechnology.
Production of 755,555 cars in 2010 was a new record for IKCO in the region, which counted for almost 50% share of the market. Moreover, Iran’s Industrial Management Organization marked IKCO as the best company under the titles of:
First rank in Sale
First rank in job creation
Second rank in profitability
Best industrial group in Iran’s car making companies
Best of all pioneer companies in Iran
A growth in the company’s stock value, 40% improvement in IDRO qualitative figures for IKCO, cash flow management, better production chain supply by SAPCO and two to five percent price reduction in 65 cars concurrent with the first phase of government’s rationalization of subsidies plan can be also regarded as other accomplishments in 2010. Reconsidering export strategies based on Iran’s Supreme Leader recommendations and exporting 40 thousand cars through IKCO export network in 2010 with the main emphasis on sending IKCO brand cars to the Islamic countries’ markets were put on the agenda. This led to the global sale of 30% of IKCO cars (national car) in 2010. Dena as IKCO’s latest car enjoys world class standards regarding technology and design, the process of design and prototyping of which took less than a year. This sedan was unveiled on April 2011

Established in 1964 as Hefei Jianghuai Automobile Factory, its name was changed to Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co., Ltd. in 1997. The company made an IPO on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in 2001.
AC has historically only produced commercial trucks (under the brand name Jianghui), but MPVs and SUVs appeared in the 2000s. By 2007, the company had gained government approval for passenger car production but, nonetheless, continued to be referred to as a truck maker. Prior to the 2007 acquisition of a passenger car license, JAC cooperated with Hyundai Motor Company in the early 2000s in an attempt to expand its product line. Beginning in 2003, it assembled Hyundai MPVs although this stopped sometime prior to 2007. At least two models based on Hyundai technology continued to be made by JAC after the cooperation was cancelled–a MPV and a SUV. Hyundai explored setting up a joint venture with the company in 2004.
n 2009, the Chinese government indicated that it supported consolidation in the Chinese auto industry, leading analysts to predict the possibility of JAC joining with Chery since they are both located in Anhui province. On the surface such a merger would make sense: Chery mainly built passenger cars, and JAC was almost entirely focused on trucks at the time. Since then, however, JAC has made it clear that it is not interested in consolidation under the aegis of the larger Chery. JAC has begun to concentrate more on passenger cars, and a 2010 announcement of a new electric vehicle program may—at least partially—have been an effort to stave off the rumored merger.
In 2010, it was one of the top ten most-productive vehicle manufacturers in China selling 458,500 units for 2.5% market share and reaching eighth place. JAC dropped one spot to ninth in 2011 making nearly 500,000 vehicles, and in 2012 a fall in units produced to about 445,000 precipitated the company’s moving down one more rung to tenth place. Estimated production capacity is over 500,000 units/year as of 2009.
In the 2000s, its flagship model was the Refine (Ruifeng in Chinese). The restyled 2004 Ruifeng Gold featured 60% Chinese-made part content.
JAC currently produces the following passenger cars:
S3, S5, J5, …

Until 1985, the Renault and Citroen logos were being used by SAIPA. However, due to some changes in its policies and programs and in order to diversify products, it was necessary to have a trademark and to build an independent brand.
Inspired by the traditional tiled tower in the Ilkhanid period, the logo of SAIPA was created, and one of the most important features of this logo is its dimensional harmony with the use of three symmetrical crests arranged with 120 ° angles, capable of change in size and dimension.
At first glance, SAIPA logo seems to be a cogwheel which is a symbol of industry and production. With more precise look, the direction of the crests may suggest a globalization trend and direction of one of the crests upwards may be interpreted as organization approach to align all its talents with its organizational excellence policy. Another way of interpreting may be that the inward direction of peripheral crests indicates the inputs which are raw material, financial and human resources and lead to outputs namely product, profit and services.
This logo was designed by late Morteza Momayez who was inspired by Gonbad Sorkh monument [red dome] in Maraghe city in Iran.

از زمان تاسیس گروه صنعتی بارز در سال 1363 به عنوان اولین کارخانهی تایرسازی کشور، به برکت علاقه و اشتیاق مصرف کنندگان، محصولات این شرکت یعنی تایر بارز در بازار تایر ایران، وارد و به واسطه کیفیت بالای این تایرها و تکنولوژی های دریافت شده، رفته رفته به عنوان بهترین تایر ایرانی مطرح گردید.
تاریخچه انتقال تکنولوژی: پس از طراحی و شروع ساخت شرکت بارز، اولین قرارداد انتقال دانش فنی با شرکت لاستیک دنا (بریجستون ایران سابق) به امضا رسید. رفته رفته این شرکت اقدام به جذب تکنولوژی TRI روسیه و مارانگونی ایتالیا برای تولید تایرهای رادیال سواری نمود. در سال های اخیر این گروه در قالب قراردادی 10 ساله اقدام به اخذ و پیاده سازی تکنولوژی کنتیننتال آلمان به منظور تولید انواع تایرهای رادیال نمود. در حال حاضر تمامی محصولات گروه صنعتی بارز با تکنولوژی کنتیننتال آلمان طراحی و تولید شده و روانه بازار می گردند.
تاریخچه تایر بارز: گروه صنعتی بارز (با نام قبلی مجتمع صنایع لاستیک کرمان) در فروردین ماه 1372 افتتاح و نام تجاری “بارز” را برای محصولات خود برگزید. اولین فعالیت تجاری گروه صنعتی بارز در سال 1373 آغاز گردید. ظرفیت اولیه ی سالانه بارز برابر با 25 هزار تن انواع تایر، تیوب و نوار وسایط نقلیه ی سبک و سنگین و همچنین تایرهای کشاورزی بود. دو سال پس از شروع تولید این ظرفیت محقق گردید. تایرهای تولیدی این گروه صنعتی بارز با نام تجاری “بارز” وارد بازار شده و دیری نپایید که بارز مورد استقبال مصرف کنندگان ایرانی، به ویژه در بخش حمل و نقل سنگین قرار گرفت.
سهم گروه صنعتی بارز در تولید محصولات کشاورزی نیز رفته رفته افزایش یافت تا جایی که پس از 5 سال از مرز 50 هزار حلقه در سال عبور کرد. در حال حاضر گروه صنعتی بارز با تولید بیش از 100 هزار حلقه انواع تایرهای کشاورزی(تراکتوری) نزدیک به 70% از سهم بازار تایر کشاورزی ایران را در اختیار دارد. این شرکت با تولید کنندگان تجهیزات کشاورزی ایران از جمله تراکتورسازی تبریز همکاری تنگاتنگی را پی ریزی نموده و قصد دارد تا نیاز این شرکت رو به رشد را در تأمین انواع تایر کشاورزی به صورت کامل و بلند مدت برآورده سازد.
راهبرد دیگر بارز، همکاری استراتژیک با دیگر خودرو سازان ایران از جمله ایران خودرو و سایپا (دو شرکت بزرگ تولید کننده ی خودروی سواری در ایران) بوده است. لذا در همین راستا گروه صنعتی بارز اقدام به احداث دو کارخانه تولید تایرهای رادیال سواری به ظرفیت 5 میلیون حلقه در سال انواع تایرهای سواری رادیال(Tubeless) نموده که هم اکنون سهم قابل ملاحظه ای در تأمین نیاز این دو خودرو ساز و سایر تولید کنندگان خودروی سواری در ایران دارد.
هدف بعدی این گروه صنعتی، افزایش ظرفیت تولید تایرهای رادیال سواری به 10 میلیون حلقه در سال می باشد. با تاسیس کارخانه بارز کردستان در سال 1392 و اجرای پروژه های توسعه ظرفیت در بارز کرمان این گروه شروع به حرکت به سمت این هدف نموده است.
گروه صنعتی بارز با انعقاد قرارداد بلند مدت همکاری فنی با شرکت کنتیننتال آلمان، چهارمین شرکت بزرگ تایر سازی جهان، تصمیم گرفت برای اولین بار در ایران نسبت به تولید و عرضه ی تایرهای رادیال باری و اتوبوسی تمام سیمی اقدام نماید. پروژه ی احداث یک واحد با ظرفیت 1100 حلقه در روز و ظرفیت سالیانه بیش از 400 هزار حلقه، از سال 1382 در دستور کار قرار گرفت که فاز اول آن در سال جاری یعنی 1385 به بهره برداری رسید. با معرفی این محصولات که با ماشین آلات و تکنولوژی روز اروپا در ایران تولید می شوند، گروه صنعتی بارز گامی بلند به جلو خواهد برداشت. همچنین در سال های اخیر این شرکت فاز دوم توسعه خود را در این حوزه آغاز نموده و علاوه بر ارائه تایرهای جدید قصد دارد تا ظرفیت تولید تایرهای رادیال تمام سیمی باری و اتوبوسی خود را دو برابر نموده و به تولید 400 هزار حلقه در سال دست یابد.
همچنین این گروه از سال 1391 خط تولید تایرهای راه سازی خود را افتتاح نموده و در حال حاضر بزرگترین تایر ساز ایرانی در این حوزه است.
همچنین در سال های اخیر محصولات این گروه مورد استقبال مصرف کنندگان قرار گرفته و با توجه به رضایت مصرف کنندگان بارز ، روند فروش این شرکت همواره صعودی بوده است .
این شرکت در حال حاضر دوره زمانی 5 سال آینده را به عنوان دوره صادرات برگزیده و برنامه های توسعه مختلفی را برای توسعه شبکه توزیع خود در بازارهای هدف صادراتی دنبال می نماید . برخی از مهمترین اهداف گروه صنعتی بارز عبارت است از :
رساندن تولید به 10 میلیون حلقه
رساندن سهم بازار داخلی تایر تعویضی(R.P) به 40درصد
رساندن میزان صادرات به 100 میلیون دلار
کسب 35درصد سهم بازار تایر تجهیزی(O.E)
دریافت تندیس سیمین تعالی سازمانی(EFQM)
چشم انداز گروه”ایفای نقش اول در کشور و یکی از نقش آفرین ها در صنعت لاستیک منطقه” بوده که با آنچه ذکر شد امید است در آینده ای نه چندان دور محقق گردد. گروه صنعتی بارز بر چهار ارزش محوری تأکید دارد.
ایجاد فضای مطلوب کاری برای کارکنان
یادگیری و بهبود مستمر
با بهره گیری از مدل تعالی سازمانی EFQM به عنوان یک راهکار تعالی سازمانی در سال های اخیر، تلاش بارز بر مشخص تر کردن اهداف راهبردی در راستای ارزش های یاد شده بوده و با تعریف پروژه های راهبردی در حوزه های “مدیریت و ساختار”، “تولید و عملیات”،”بازاریابی و فروش”، “تحقیقات وتوسعه” و “حوزه ی مالی” برای ارتقای خود برنامه ریزی نموده و به طور قطع و یقین با جدیت هر چه بیشتر همکاران خود، مسیر تعالی را طی خواهد نمود.
راهبرد دیگر گروه ایجاد شبکه ی توزیع برند ساز بوده و در این راستا اعتقاد راسخ به پیوند بلند مدت با مشتریان و عوامل فروش خود در بازار دارد. مشتریان محصولات بارز از طریق عوامل ثابت فروش همواره پشتیبانی شده و در 303 مرکز عرضه ی محصولات بارز در سراسر کشور به محصولات و خدمات پس از فروش این شرکت دسترسی دارند.
همچنین در حال حاضر تایرهای بارز از طریق اداره صادرات و همچنین شبکه نمایندگان بارز به کشورهای ترکیه، عراق، پاکستان، افغانستان، قزاقستان، عربستان سعودی، سودان ، سوریه، ارمنستان و آذربایجان صادر میگردد.
همزمان با افزایش سهم بازار محصولات “بارز”، راهبرد یاد شده اهمیت بیشتری می یابد و در همین ارتباط گروه صنعتی بارز در نظر دارد تا حداقل در 5 منطقه ی کشور دفاتر بازاریابی خود را فعال سازد تا ضمن ارتباط نزدیک تر با مشتریان، بتواند خدمات مورد نیاز آن ها را بیش از پیش تأمین نماید. گروه صنعتی بارز با رقابتی تر شدن بازار در سال های اخیر توجه ویژه به بخش تحقیقات و توسعه به عنوان یکی از عوامل موفقیت خود در آینده، مبذول داشته و با احداث یک مرکز پیشرفته ی تحقیقات و توسعه و تجهیز آن، زیر بنای طراحی و توسعه ی محصولات را فراهم نموده است. علاوه بر آن با آغاز پروژه ی احداث مرکز تست جاده ای برای اولین با در کشور، این گروه صنعتی جایگاه ویژه ای را برای خود رقم خواهد زد که امید می رود این مرکز بتواند پیوند قوی تری با خودرو سازهای کشور و گروه صنعتی بارز ایجاد نماید.
گروه صنعتی بارز با تأکید بر تولید انواع تایر به ویژه تایرهای رادیال سیمی به عنوان فعالیت محوری و اصلی تلاش نموده است در زنجیره ی ارزش ساز خود نیز فعال باشد. در این زمینه می توان به احداث یک واحد تولید سیم طوقه و یک واحد روکش تایر در سیرجان، مشارکت در طرح تولید دوده ی صنعتی در محلات، تأسیس یک شرکت سرمایه گذاری و نیز دو شرکت بازرگانی(سامان بارز) و خدمات حمل و نقل(بارز ترابر) اقدام نماید. شناخت زنجیره ی ارزش ساز گروه و سرمایه گذاری در آن نیز به عنوان یکی از عوامل مهم در فضای رقابتی آینده مدنظر بوده است و سعی می شود تا جایی که تأثیر مثبت روی فعالیت محوری گروه داشته باشد مورد توجه قرار گیرد.
