More than 3,4 mln USD to be invested in glass fabrics and geosynthetic materials production in Russia

The strategic factory Steklonit has been updating production line since 2019. 250 mln RUR (3,4 mln USD) from the two year 600 mln RUR investment plan are to be invested in 2020.

The factory specialization is production of structural glass fabrics and geosynthetic materials based on glass fiber, polyester fiber and basalt. Within 2 years, several production lines for fiberglass fittings have been launched. At the beginning of February 2020 the factory's weaving equipment park has been doubled with the new and modern Italian equipment. New machines with flexible rapiers are planned to be used for production of roofing, structural and electrical insulating fabrics. Due to this the production volume of fabrics will increase many times.

In April a new workshop for production of composite materials was launched at Steklonit. New workplaces are created, despite the difficult epidemiological situation. The new production line will produce mobile road pavements and composite slabs of ballastless bridge.
