Polymer LLC has marked a significant milestone with the launch of large-format polyethylene film production in the Smolensk region. This accomplishment signifies the completion of an ambitious investment project aimed at establishing the Polymer-2 production complex in the region.

The construction of this new complex has not only increased the production capacity of the enterprise but has also introduced a groundbreaking production line, unparalleled in Russia. This state-of-the-art line is designed to manufacture large-format polyethylene films with an impressive width ranging from 6 to 18 meters and a thickness spanning 180 to 250 microns.

The successful realization of this project has elevated the daily production capacity of the enterprise, soaring from 180 to 230 tons per day. Additionally, the innovative line's capability to produce large-format polyethylene films is poised to address diverse applications and market demands.

Governor Vasily Anokhin of the Smolensk region expressed his satisfaction with the collaboration between Polymer and the government in bringing this substantial investment project to fruition. He emphasized the project's far-reaching impact, not only in expanding the production complex but also in generating employment opportunities. The establishment of the Polymer-2 complex has resulted in the creation of 310 new jobs in Desnogorsk. Over the years, Polymer LLC has demonstrated its commitment to regional development, investing nearly 3.1 billion rubles in its expansion, thereby contributing to the economic vitality of the Smolensk region.

The new production line specializes in the manufacture of greenhouse films, silage films, cover films, mulching films, and other applications relevant to the agricultural sector. This diversification aligns with Polymer LLC's strategic initiatives, catering to the evolving needs of industries such as agriculture, where polyethylene films play a crucial role in various applications.

The greenhouse films produced by the new line contribute to the agricultural sector by providing optimal conditions for plant growth and protection. Silage films aid in the preservation of animal feed, ensuring its quality for livestock. Cover films serve a variety of purposes, including protecting crops from adverse weather conditions and promoting optimal growing environments. Mulching films play a role in weed control, moisture retention, and temperature regulation in agricultural settings.

Earlier announcements indicated that Polymer LLC has plans to allocate approximately 2 billion rubles for the creation of a production complex dedicated to packaging materials in the Smolensk region. This forthcoming venture underscores the company's commitment to expanding its operational footprint and addressing the demand for diverse polyethylene-based products.

The Polymer-2 production complex represents a significant addition to Polymer LLC's presence in the Smolensk region, complementing the existing Polymer plant situated in Desnogorsk. The Desnogorsk facility encompasses installations dedicated to the production of polyethylene packaging films, showcasing the company's versatility in catering to varying complexities within the packaging sector.
