New Investment Project to Build Advanced Wood Processing Plant in Baryshsky District

Sergey Morozov, Governor of the Ulyanovsk Region, examined the production facility on 3 December.


The woodworking enterprise of Konstantin Ulanov is located in Barysh. It manufactures trim molding, block house, faux log, casing molding, door-cases and other wood products. The plant has upgraded its drying equipment and installed a new boiler. In 2021, it is planned to complete construction of a production facility for wood processing in the village of Zemlyanichny.

“A plant for advanced wood processing will be built in Baryshsky District. Zhadovsky Timber Processing Complex invests almost 100 million rubles in its new production facility. I would like to stress that we should look at this industry as a whole, from processing to forest restoration. In addition, we must support people working in this sphere, using as a basis the support measures that we created for the agro-industrial complex,” - the head of the region emphasized.

The enterprise is planning to purchase an automated line for wood waste processing, tractors with attachable equipment to grind slashings created during timber harvesting and URAL-4320 vehicles to transport wood chips from the forest to the plant.

“The new production facility will make high-quality carbon and coal. The products will be exported to China and metallurgical plants. This project will create new jobs, as well as improve the ecological condition of the district's forests by reducing the likelihood of wildfires,” - said Gulnara Rakhmatulina, Acting Minister of Nature and Circular Economy of Ulyanovsk Region.

The production is to be launched in 2021. Its output will reach 600 tons of goods per month.

“In Baryshsky District, we will start clearing felling areas all year around instead of using fire. This way we will prepare these sites for forest restoration well in advance," said Vladimir Artemyev, Director of OOO "Zhadovsky Timber Processing Complex”.

Currently, all necessary tree crops have been planted on 1,614 hectares of designated forest lands in the Ulyanovsk region, which made 108% of the original plan that included only 1, 500 hectares.
