GAZ Group's United Engineering Center is the largest modern engineering facility in Russia, engaged in a full cycle of activities to engineer an automobile: concept definition, styling, layout development, prototyping, modeling and testing, production processes creation, engineering and certification. Combining engineering centers of GAZ Group's plants into a single organization in 2008 made it possible to consolidate all engineering resources, standardize the processes and methods of developing products and components, reduce the time of product development, as well as to engage system suppliers of automotive components.
