China Ships Lines for Production of Medical Face Masks to PSEZ "Ulyanovsk"
Governor Sergey Morozov visited the port special economic zone and monitored implementation of the project.
The head of the region said, “Currently, three production lines have been shipped to the port zone; they can manufacture up to 600 thousand products a day under the three-shift schedule. The plant will start working soon to join regional manufacturers of protective equipment. The project is so important because it will also create 80 new jobs for residents of the Ulyanovsk region during these economic conditions.”
Production lines made by NTM Group (China) were delivered to Russia via air transport. The cargo arrived at Sheremetyevo International Airport, and then it was shipped to the special economic zone "Ulyanovsk". The line was placed under the clear zone customs procedure, which will exempt the company from paying customs duty and VAT. The company has received the necessary registration certificate of the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor) for production of disposable face masks.
According to Oleg Barabanov, Director General of PSEZ "Ulyanovsk", NTM Group will be able to start production as soon as it resolved the issue with supply of spunbond (raw materials necessary for production of medical face masks) with OAO "Roskhimzashchita", the federal operator and coordinator that provides regions with medical products.
“NTM Group is planning to ship several more lines that will produce respirators, insulating suits and boot covers. We are ready to help the company receive necessary certificates in Russia, as well as sign contracts with airlines for the transportation of cargo,” - said Sergey Vasin, Head of Ulyanovsk Region Development Corporation.
