Obuv Rossii group of companies announced plans to invest 500 million rubles in the development of production in 2017. This was announced by Anton Titov, founder and director of the Obuv Rossii group of companies, at the press conference “Import Substitution in the Region: Results and Prospects”, which was held at Interfax-Siberia on Thursday, November 10. The funds will be primarily aimed at upgrading equipment and expanding the cutting and sewing workshop.

Obuv Rossii implements a seven-year production development program, the volume of which is 5 billion rubles, of which 2 billion rubles are own funds. By 2022, the company expects to increase the production of shoes by three times - up to 1,5 million pairs. As part of the implementation of this program, the company in 2015-2016.

This year, Obuv Rossii acquired two sets of Orisol automated sewing systems, and began manufacturing special-purpose shoes; in the fall, the company expanded its production facilities by 1,5 times - up to 5,8 thousand sq.m.

At the same time, imports continue to decline: a decline for six months of this year amounted to 22%.
