In the Vladimir region, a new enterprise was opened in the shops of the ruined Melenkovsky Flax Mill. Now they make shoes there. At first, the workers did not even believe that a new factory could be organized there from scratch, and now the owners are already planning to expand production. Money for this will appear when the new rules for the payment of electricity work.
Earlier, at the Melenkovsky Flax Mill, canvas, tarpaulin, fabrics for workwear and packaging materials were produced. Over time, flax was stopped growing in agriculture. Former weaving areas would be completely empty, but large and small industrial enterprises have replaced large industrialists.
“The total area is 24 thousand square meters,” says Roman Trofimov, General Director of OOO MPK Zubr. - Used for the production of 1,5 thousand meters, the rest of the territory is still intended for rent.
The production of light slippers-slippers and warm winter shoes here began to develop a year ago. Entrepreneurs say that at first the workers did not believe that new production could be launched from scratch. Now more and more people are coming to the factory, but there are still not enough workers. Volumes are growing along with electricity consumption.
“The main criterion for choosing this site was the electrical component - the fact that the electricity in the Vladimir region turned out to be the most acceptable for us, 2 times lower than at our previous site,” says Valery Alekseev, General Director of Zhanette LLC. "And since all our production facilities are energy-intensive, this issue is very important."
Ethylene vinyl acetate is the lightest modern raw material for smelting shale and special galoshes, which will become the basis of winter shoes. It is still being bought abroad, but over time they hope to master the full production cycle here.
“The most energy-intensive production in our country is injection molding, the maximum is the production of raw materials,” Valery Alekseev explains. - Next - the cutting site, where the press. Then - sewing production, the most minimal. But everything depends on electricity. ”
On average, about a million rubles per month are spent only on electricity. Each extra penny per kilowatt is a plus to the cost, which ultimately will affect the interests of buyers. The same thing happened with fines for unused energy or for busting it. The new rules have changed everything.
“They introduced a new law to abolish all these sanctions. Now it will be much easier for everyone to plan their budget, ”Roman Trofimov is convinced. - It is much more convenient than before. We clearly know that if we increased our production volume today, it will not cost us anything except how much it costs at the moment one kilowatt hour. ”
The entrepreneurs have plans to repair the abandoned buildings of the Melenkovsky Flax Mill. Put new windows, somewhere to restore walls and ceilings. After all, here you can place huge production facilities and storage facilities. According to the materials of the site Vesti.ru.
