Kiilto expands its production activities in Russia - new adhesives plant will start in Autumn 2008

Published on 2008-02-21. Author : SpecialChem

In February 2008, OOO Tikkurila's (Tikkurila Oy's subsidiary in the city of Ramenskoe, Russia) manufacturing facilities (5000m2) as well as the machinery will transfer to possession of the newest Kiilto-subsidiary in Russia, OOO Kiilto-Klei Ramenskoe (former OOO Kiilto-Klei M), and Kiilto's adhesives production in the plant will start in September 2008. The production starts with constructive adhesives with a new brand and continues with industrial adhesives in the spring 2009. The main market area for these new products will be Russia. However, construction adhesives will be having fair demand also in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Belarus and Ukraine.

Ramenskoe lies 40 kilometres south-east of Moscow (see map below). OOO Tikkurila uses the plant for paint production till July and for warehousing till August 2008. The staff of Kiilto-Klei Ramenskoe moves to Ramenskoe in the end of February 2008, excluding dispatching and warehousing departments; they will stay in their current premises (on the north-west brim of Moscow) till August 2008 when all Moscow operations will be moved to Ramenskoe.

Further, Kiilto has made an agreement on buying a site, measuring 6 hectars, in St. Petersburg. The site is intended for a brand new logistics centre for the company ZAO Kiilto-Klei St. Petersburg, and is planned to be finished in 2009.

Starting adhesives production in Russia is part of Kiilto's "Internationally Domestic" - philosophy meaning that products are at their best produced in their actual market area - close to the customer. The long-term plan is that the majority of the Kiilto products sold in the CIS-area would be manufactured there as well. Last year Kiilto founded the production company OOO Kiilto-Kaluga in Malojaroslavets and they have initiated a building project of Kiilto's new dry mix plant. The plan is that the production starts in 2009
