The investment amounts to around one billion rubles for the final expansion (around €16m). This will be Schattdecor’s third plant in Russia.

Harald Purainer, ceo, welcomed the governor of the Tyumen region, Wladimir Jakuschew, among the hundreds of guests.

The new Schattdecor plant in Tyumen currently has 67 employees and, apart from two impregnation lines, boasts Shuttdecor’s latest resin heating system.

From now on customers in the Eastern regions of the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan can be served from West Siberia.
