An affiliate of Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding has reopened in Sazonovo, Vologda Region.
On March 11, a new production facility started operation in Sazonovo after modernization. Vologda Region Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov took part in the launch of the production.
"I am very glad that a plant with 160 years of history has started working again in Sazonovo. This is an important event not only for the district, but also for the entire region. Glassware production on the site of the current glass plant was founded in 1860. In the early 2000s, the company carried out the reconstruction of the plant for the production of glass packaging, but production was stopped in 2013. In 2019, a protocol of intent was signed between the Vologda Region Government and Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding LLC, which provided for the launch of production. The volume of investments amounted to about RUR 800 million. Up to date Italian equipment for the production of glass bottles was installed at the glass works. I am sure the glassware produced in Sazonovo will be in high demand in the domestic and foreign markets. I want to thank the management of Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding for cooperation. Thanks to your efforts, despite the difficulties of the past year, the plant has started working again," Oleg Kuvshinnikov said.
Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding is the part of industrial group SISECAM, one of the world's leading manufacturers of glass products, operating in 13 countries. The company produces high-quality products for the markets of beer, wine, strong alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages, food products and is the leading producer of glass containers in Russia.
The glass factory in Sazonovo is expected to produce 240 million bottles (0,25 - 0,5 L) per year. An affiliate of Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding in Sazonovo has signed agreements with a number of major companies for the delivery of glass containers. The top leadership of Ruscam Glass Packaging Holding is planning to deliver bottles to France, Germany and Scandinavia this year.
