7 June 2017
Working trip to the Zavodoukovskiy city district the governor of the Tyumen region Vladimir Yakushev started with a visit to the factory for the production of a bag for packing potatoes and vegetables LLC "SCM-100". The implementation of this investment project was carried out in two stages. Today the second stage has opened here.
The company LLC "KTS-Service" was organized in 2011. She was engaged in the purchase and sale of vegetable mesh, produced in China. Four years ago, the company's management decided to create its own production of this sought after product. Due to private investments, the building was purchased and leased equipment was taken. When implementing the investment project, a loan was also used from the Investment Agency of the Tyumen Region. In 2015, the company produced about 4 million grids.
In 2016, the company decided to expand production by building a new production base and acquiring equipment. At the end of last year, commissioning began in new workshops.
"In small cities it is difficult to find new production niches. This project is a good example of implementing a business idea. It solves the problem of import substitution, and creates new jobs, and produces demanded products not only in the regional and Russian markets, but also outside the country. If there are more such projects in each municipality, then we will solve the employment problem, and the economy in the territories will be different. It is also important that this investment project was implemented by our local investors, effectively using the support measures in the region, "the governor expressed his position at the opening of the production.
The head of the Zavodoukivsky urban district, Alexander Anokhin, emphasized the plant's role in solving the environmental problem associated with waste processing, since the secondary raw materials - plastic and polyethylene - are used for production.
The general director of SCM-100 LLC, Alexander Kurash, noted that it was possible to build the plant quickly thanks to a favorable investment climate in the region and the existing financial instruments for supporting the business.
"The opening of the second stage will allow us to increase the volume of production to 5 million pieces per month, to start the release of a popular net on the market - a bag at the outset. We plan to maintain our leadership positions in Russia and expand the geography of our presence. Now the products are exported to Belarus and Kazakhstan, we are negotiating with the Poles, "Alexander Kurash said.
Thanks to the introduction of the second stage, 120 more jobs were created. After reaching full capacity, the enterprise will employ more than 200 people.
Now, SCM-100 LLC is one of the largest producers of vegetable mesh in Russia - before importing it, it was imported from China.
