Gabriel-Chemie Increases Production Capacity in Russia
Gabriel-Chemie Group, Gumpoldskirchen, Austria, will build a new masterbatch plant in the Vorino industrial park in the Kaluga oblast. The completion of the first section and the relocation from the existing location in Dorokhovo (Moscow region) are planned by the end of 2018.
Gabriel-Chemie has been operating successfully with its own subsidiary in Russia since 2007. Due to the steadily growing business and the increasing demand for masterbatch in the Russian region and the neighbouring countries of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Belarus, it is necessary to adjust the production capacity of Gabriel-Chemie Russia to the future requirements.
On the 27,000-square-meter grounds in the Vorino industrial park, the modern masterbatch production facility is to be built in four construction phases. During the first stage, around 260 million roubles will be invested in the new location and modern, environmentally friendly production technology with a capacity of 2,000 tonnes per year. The maximum production capacity can be increased step by step to 20,000 tonnes per year until after completion of all construction phases. Gabriel-Chemie CFO Andreas Berger comments: "We have noticed an increasing interest in functional additives such as flame retardants, infrared absorbers and laser additives. Through our many years of experience in the development of functional additives, we have accumulated a wealth of expertise and, together with our range of color and combination masterbatch, we are a capable complete supplier for the individual equipment of plastics".
