According to regional television, the factory began operations on May 27 in the city of Zavodoukovsk. The name of the company is KTS-Service, and it specializes in manufacturing plastic vegetable
mesh. The Governor of Tyumen, Vladimir Yakushev, was present at the official launch ceremony.
Previously this type of product had to be imported to the region and other Russian regions, mainly from China. In the future, Tyumen authorities will be able to promote the development of import substitution of imported production.
For the production of vegetable
mesh at the factory, it will require secondary and primary polyethelene and only of local origin. The market for this product is expected to be not only enterprises but also a large number of agricultural businesses. The contract base has already been established with enterprises in several Russian regions. A large demand for like product is reaching the factory, and it has impressive prospects for development. According to the company's management, they believe a real increase in production could be about double the original, or 30 million mesh nets, in a year.
The cost of the project was about 75 million rubles, including public funds, according to a press release of the Tyumen Oblast.
