TECHNONICOL New XPS-Production Capacities for Supplies in Europe
On the 16th of May 2019 in the city of Osipovichy (Republic of Belarus) an official ceremony was held marking the launch of the new XPS-producing plant of the TECHNONICOL Corporation. New processing line offers European trade partners the most rational and convenient solution for supplies of thermal insulation and waterproofing materials, and will significantly increase the share of the Corporation on the Eastern European and Baltic markets.
Trade partners from Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland were invited to the official launch ceremony. It was of great importance for the guests to get acquainted with the production capacity of the new plant and discuss the details of the integrated shipping. The Osipovichy plant’s location is extremely suitable for convenient material shipping to Europe, which will noticeably decrease the time of delivery.
The launch ceremony started with the ribbon cutting, which marked the launch of the new XPS-producing plant of the TECHNONICOL Corporation. Afterwards the guests were offered an excursion around TECHNONICOL’s brand-new and one of the most up-to-date factories. During the excursion the trade partners learned about the entire XPS production process; a series of trials were demonstrated to prove the major advantages of this thermal insulation material.
Within the framework of the activities dedicated to the official launch of the new production line an excursion was as well offered at the plant with more than 50 years of experience in bitumen roofing material production — from rubberoid to modern coverings.
Being a part of the international TECHNONICOL Corporation guarantees world standards of quality and production culture at the new plant in the city of Osipovichy. The plant works with the automatized lines by Berstorff GmbH, which enables quick production change and production of the wide assortment of the materials — XPS slabs with a milled surface for façade works, materials from 10 to 500 mm thick, etc. The stated annual amount of production — 360 000 m3, 40% of the production aimed for export to Europe. After the launch, the export potential of the plant will be increased.
“TECHNONICOL is aimed at the development of export of up-to-date construction materials. Today we supply our products to 95 countries. For us, it is important not only to offer a wide assortment of the materials, but also provide the highest possible level of service”, - emphasizes Sergei Kolesnikov, the co-owner of the TECHNONICOL Corporation. “The launch of the plant in Osipovichy will help us to be closer to our European customers and optimize the logistics of the shipping”.
