Ulyanovsk region has put into operation the new galvanizing unit
On 29 December, the Governor Sergey Morozov participated in the launch of the second pot at the production facility of AO "CTC Metallokonstruktsiya".
The new equipment will lower production costs to 25%, which will help the enterprise become more competitive and commercially successful. The new facility will galvanize more than 60 thousand tons of products. As a result, the effective output of two pots will exceed 105 thousand tons per year or 300 tons per day.
“These are amazing figures that require major human and time resources. Naturally, the facility will need new employees. About 60 hi-tech jobs will be created here and the salary will exceed the regional average. For the Ulyanovsk region, such projects always mean massive investment. This includes the increase of tax revenues due to improvement of the output and sales. And I would like to remind that upgrading is one of the priority tasks set by the President Vladimir Putin”, – the head of the region noted.
Today AO "CTC Metallokonstruktsiya" is the leading Russian company specializing in manufacture and installation of traffic, bridge and pedestrian barriers and in manufacture of corrugated steel structures and load bearing supports with cone shaped pedestal. Since 2013, investment into the project exceeded 800 million rubles; in 2018 it made 185 million rubles.
“We have been working hard to launch the second production facility of hot galvanizing for about five years. The second pot will have a favorable impact on development of the plant in general: the project gives the enterprise the chance to increase its production capacities approximately twofold. Today we are preparing all necessary documents for construction of the third galvanizing pot", – commented Andrey Shcherbina, Director General of AO "CTC Metallokonstruktsiya”.
