New plant for the production of stone wool in Poland
In March of this year, TECHNONICOL has celebrated 15 years since the company began operating in the Polish market. The Polish branch is the part of TECHNONICOL Corporation - one of the largest producer and supplier of roofing, waterproofing and thermal insulation materials in Russia and Europe. The company has 53 production plants in 6 countries, whose materials are exported to 116 countries, and the annual turnover exceeds one billion euros.
The oldest plant of the Corporation was founded in 1868. Another one production asset will soon be added to this infrastructure. In Poland TECHNONICOL will start production of stone wool, one of the most popular materials for industrial and private housing construction.
In a Special economic zone of Small Enterprises in Wykroty (Dolny Śląsk), construction works are underway and will be completed no later than December of this year. In June, it is planned to install and put into operation a furnace for melting basalt rocks, from which stone wool is produced. The furnace, which is heated to a temperature of 1400 degrees Celsius, is the heart of the entire plant. The plant will be built on an area of 19.5 hectares, which shows the scale of the project and the capacity for the volume of materials produced.
The company announced a planned start time of production at the end of March 2021. The plant will employ about 180 people. TN-Poland is extremely happy with this investment, which is ideal for celebrating the company's 15th anniversary on the Polish market. In addition, TECHNONICOL informs that the company intends to develop intensively and celebrate the next anniversaries.
