The company from Stary Oskol would manufacturer greenhouse constructions for regional greenhouse cluster development. It is reported that the company "Altec" would supply components for another Belgorod greenhouse complex under construction.
Regional authorities pays considerable attention to the development of greenhouse production in Belgorod region where a major project "Greenhouse cluster of 500 hectares" (whose main purpose is to create by 2020 500 hectares of existing greenhouses) are actively implemented. The regional development institution "Razvitie" Corporation" JSC would be an engagement manager.
Russian policy for import substitution and organization of food security includes the establishment of producing equipment industries for the greenhouse business. One of the flagships will be the Belgorod plant for the production of aluminum structural shape "Altec".
REFERENCE:"Altec" plant is located in the town of Stary Oskol. Today the main consumers of its products are Russian construction companies and greenhouse manufacturers. Now "Altec" management is going to construct its own greenhouse. It is reported that over 62 million rubles will be invested to the plant development. By 2016 "Altec" is to increase its production capacity by building new production facilities with an area of about 2 thousand square meters. Equipment for metal melting and casting would be purchased. The new production facility will be operational in December 2015. Stariy Oskol greenhouses can be used not only on an industrial scale. The company plans to open facility for production of greenhouses for private homes and cottages. Polycarbonate would not be used as a material. Greenhouses will be glazed and provided by automatic climate control, irrigation, radiation protection. Due to the production expansion aluminum structural shape manufacture would reach 12.500 tons per year, 16.800 tons of billots. "Altec" plant already occupies 4 % of Russian aluminum shape market and after production expansion the share of Belgorod plant will reach 6 %.
The regional Department of Economic Development participated in "Altec" enterprise expansion. It would also coordinate construction of greenhouse for flowering bulb.
The new enterprise as substitution for products previously imported from the Netherlands would be placed in Belgorod agglomeration.
Commenting the project the Head of Consumer Market Development Department of Belgorod region Economic Development Department Vladimir Zubov said:
- We will grow not just flower bulbs which will go on sale but the bulbs themselves. It is becoming too expensive to bring them from the Netherlands.
Tulips produced in Belgorod region will decorate the city's streets and regional villages. In particular it is planned that by the holiday dates they will be planted in the regional center - the city of Belgorod.
