Conditions created for the residents of the special economic zone allow investors to focus all their efforts, including material resources, to achieve the main goal – to set up business. Thanks to this support, we managed to build a plant in the shortest possible time. Today, the "PM-Composite" plant is a ready startup.

And if the automotive manufacturers were the main residents at the start, then today chemical, pharmaceutical and construction engineering clusters are also well-developed. Our object is to provide conditions for comfortable and efficient implementation of any projects in the SEZ territory and personally I think that we cope with success with this aim. The launch of the “PM-Composite” plant in test mode proves our successful cooperation and we wish prosperity and impressive production volumes to the plant”, said Sergey Andreev, Chief Officer of the Togliatti SEZ.
