TOMSK, Jul 31 – RIA Tomsk. Interglass glass factory located in the village of Samus (belongs to the closed city of Seversk, the satellite city of Tomsk), began to modernize its production; at the first stage it is planned to modernize the existing lines, at the second (by the end of 2022) – to construct the second stage, the director of Interglass Oleg Gumenyuk told.

As follows from the materials of the Interglass company, the plant was created in 2018 on the basis of the bankrupt glass container plant Seversksteklo. The plant has two glass-blowing furnaces (Czech Republic), as well as packaging lines made in France and Germany. The total production at the end of 2019 amounted to 108 million items - glass jars and bottles.

Updating of existing lines

"The modernization of the first stage of production should be completed by the end of this year. The total estimate of modernization - is about 500 million rubles, half of which - is our own funds, and another half - are funds from the Industrial Development Fund (IDF). As a result of the reconstruction, we plan to add 15% to the existing production and significantly increase the quality of products", - Gumenyuk said.

The modernization of the first stage of Interglass involves the renewal of the glass furnace and the retrofitting of existing lines with additional equipment. As a result, the plant will be able to produce lightweight glass containers using NNPB technology (especially in demand by beer companies), which will lead to savings in raw materials, energy resources and a decrease in production costs, the company says.

The renovation of the production line of the Interglass plant became possible thanks to a concessional loan from the federal Industrial Development Fund, which the company received with the support of the regional authorities, the deputy governor of the Tomsk region for industrial policy Igor Shaturny said.

"The regional authorities helped the company prepare an application to the federal Industrial Development Fund, it was approved, and the plant received almost 250 million rubles of soft loans. We will continue to support the company, and, I hope, next year the plant will find resources for the construction and launch of the second stage of production", - Shaturny said.

Plans for the future

According to the general director, today the geography of supplies of Interglass products covers the territory from Arkhangelsk to Yakutia, including Kazakhstan. At the same time, the plant refuses new customers, since it is physically unable to satisfy all requests. The transition to the production of lightweight glass containers will expand the number of customers - Baltika has already submitted an application for cooperation.

The launch of the second stage of the plant, for which the site is already being prepared, will allow the company to increase its volumes by 2 - 2.5 times. But finding the funds to buy a new production line will not be easy.

"The construction of the second stage will require about 1.5 billion rubles of investment. Now we are preparing the documentation, we are starting the design of the second stage. According to our plans, the design should be completed by the end of 2021, and construction by the end of 2022", - Gumenyuk told.

The launch of the second line of the plant will allow the company to increase its staff by 150 people (today the plant employs 235 residents of the village of Samus), according to the materials of Interglass.

According to the SPARK-Interfax analytical system, Interglass LLC was registered in the village of Samus in 2017. It refers to small and medium-sized businesses. The main activity - is the production of hollow glass products and sheet glass. The owner of the main share (62.5%) in the company is its general director Oleg Gumenyuk, who also controls the Novosibirsk companies A-Trading and Stroyplast. At the end of 2019, the company brought in 10 thousand rubles of net profit (in 2018 - 5.3 million).
