Plastic car components production has been launched in Nizhny Novgorod


 

RusAutoNewsCom.- Plastmatika LLC has started a large-size injection molding production of plastic car components on the territory of the Kulibin Special Economic Zone (SEZ). The relevant statement has been made by the press office of the regional government. 

614 million rubles have been invested in the project. 144 new jobs will be created with the implementation of the project, the payback period of which will take less than 4.5 years. Car components, various types and sizes of rubbish containers, plastic pallets, elements of modular drainage systems and surface drainage, trays for baking industry and different types of packing materials will be amongst the wide spectrum of products manufactured by the company. The organisation of bespoke production will also be possible, in accordance with the requirements of specific customers. 

“The commencing of the operations of the first resident of Kulibin SEZ will be an important milestone in the development of the regional industry. The products manufactured by Plastmatika have international and domestic analogues, created with the same technologies. However, the goods made by the resident of Kulibin SEZ will have an advantage over imported products in the Russian and the CIS market in terms of price, which might offer a niche to Plastmatika, giving the company an edge over its rivals” – as emphasised by Gleb Nikitin

GAZ Group will become one of the key customers for the components manufactured by the enterprise. The production of waste containers is expected to bring import substituting products to the market, which will be in demand within the scope of the state programme for the separation of waste collection. 

As stated by the governor of Nizhny Novgorod region, the technological process of production requires the recycling of plastics, which is crucial for environmental protection. 

“A pilot industrial start-up of production took place at Plastmatika today. The company will reach the project capacity during the first quarter of 2021. Two other residents of Kulibin SEZ will commence operations within the same period: Homa Adhesive and RT-Composite Gas Cylinders. In addition, we expect to hold a second council of experts in February 2021 to assess the applications of the potential future residents of the SEZ” – as told by the General Director of the Development Corporation Timur Khalitov

As one may remember, the projects of Plastmatika, Homa Adhesive and RT-Composite Gas Cylinders were approved by the Kulibin SEZ Council of Experts in October 2020. The Development Corporation of Nizhny Novgorod region is the managing body of the SEZ.
