Hempel into Russia

Leading international marine and container coatings supplier Hempel has signed an agreement with local government officials in the Ulyanovsk region to set up its first paint production facility in Russia.

Hempel and the Ulyanovsk authorities will invest E23M in the new facility to be built on a 70,000 m2 site close to the city of Ulyanovsk, 893km east of Moscow. Scheduled to start production in December 2012, the plant will help meet growing demand for Hempel coatings in the Russian market.

“This will be our first factory in Russia,” said Hempel Group CFO Kim Junge Andersen. “We’ve had a very good experience with our organisation in Russia and they have become well-established in the market. This plant will significantly increase our ability to service our customers in the region.”

Designed to house raw materials and finished product under one roof, the factory will be able to produce 16.3M litres of paint annually on a single-shift basis. If further capacity is required, the factory can operate on two shifts to raise production capacity to 26M litres.

The plant will feature the latest in environmentally-friendly coating production equipment technology, including a semi-automatic powder handling system, an automatic liquid dosing system and a solvent recovery unit. It is estimated that up to 90% of solvents used in the production process will be recovered.

In order to meet local and Hempel Group environmental standards, all floors will be sealed to prevent soil contamination in the event of a spill, or to collect water in the event of a fire.

At present, Hempel has 310 products available on the Russian market. With the new factory, it is hoped that this number will expand six fold, with a mix of standard and specialised products for the local market.
