The official ceremony welcomed the Ryazanskaya Oblast Governor Oleg Kovalev and the TechnoNICOL Corporation president Sergey Kolesnikov.
The investment in the new plant amounted to 500 mn rur. The fabrication line for liquid PU-foam was specifically designed by Pamasol (Swiss company). It is currently considered as one of the most advanced lines in Russia and Europe.
Presently, the overall market volume of liquid construction foams is over 92 mn cans annually. The new TechnoNICOL plant with output capacity of over 40 cans per minute will create 30 workplaces. The enterprise can supply products to all regions of the company’s presence in Russia and export to the countries of Europe and APR.
The new plant of TechnoNICOL corresponds to high standards of environmental safety. Its building is designed to meet the concept of complete cycle production.
«Today we are witnessing a notable event for the Ryazanskaya Oblast. The new advanced enterprise is going to manufacture much-needed products and effectively address the issue of import substitution," mentioned the Ryazanskaya Oblast Governor Oleg Kovalev in his speech. «The new TechnoNICOL plant creates highly productive workplaces. Similar efficient projects intended to accelerate the region’s development gain state support now and always».
Currently, the Russian market of construction foams lacks modern scientific and production centers and, as a result, cannot provide the complete range of products as compared to the market available to citizens of Europe. The newly built plant of TechnoNICOL must bring this segment to a brand-new level due to technology transfer, new products and complete line automation. The company also plans to create a proper R&D center intended to constantly develop products’ functional properties and new unique receipts, so that the company could react to changing consumer’s demands.
Moreover, the plant permits to manufacture one of the raw material components, previously imported from abroad. This could make the enterprise less dependable from European suppliers and volatility of currency rates, offering consumers a high quality product at the best possible price.
«Today we have completed the construction of the 50th plant of the TechnoNICOL Corporation. We are one of the very few Russian producers with such diversified production capacities. It is symbolic that the new enterprise will produce a completely new product for us, the liquid one-component polyurethane foam," said the TechnoNICOL President Sergey Kolesnikov. «This market is highly promising for the company and we plan to become a prominent player in this field in Russia and abroad».
