I.Metshin: “The withdrawal of foreign companies is a niche to grow and occupy this market in the economy of the city and the republic”
From January to
September, the industrial production index increased by 8.8% in Kazan. During
this period, the city's enterprises shipped goods of their own production, manufactured
and rendered services in the amount of 441 billion rubles, which is 8% more
compared to 2021, Ildar Shakirov, Deputy head of the Executive Committee,
reported at the Business Monday meeting.
“In general, the
urban economy is coping with new challenges today, - Ilsur Metshin noted. – Timely
modernization helped many enterprises in these difficult times to survive. And,
of course, the withdrawal of foreign companies is a niche to grow and occupy
this market in the economy of the city, the republic and the country. No one
says that it will be easy. We have a great science, we are leading today in
many ways, it all speaks about human potential, our capital and capabilities.
Therefore, at this stage, this synergy should serve to ensure that we grow in
all directions and occupy the niches that have been vacated today.”
For example, the Kazan Aircraft Factory launched the
production of the first TU-214 aircraft. Commercial aircraft deliveries for
airlines are planned for 2023. The first airplanes are already in production.
The company is also increasing the volume of production of TU-214 passenger
aircraft. It is planned that by 2025 production will reach 10 aircrafts. “Starting
from 2023, the aircraft produced at the Kazan Aircraft Factory will be
delivered to Russian airlines. For example, the demand for medium–range aircrafts
with a capacity of up to 210 people began to grow actively in the market due to
the sanctions implied by Western countries, the withdrawal of imported
components from the production sector and maintenance problems,”- the speaker
Russian Helicopters plans to complete the import substitution program
for Ansat helicopters in 2024. Now the company is reassembling machines without
components from the USA and Europe. In total, there are 14 positions of key
components, 10 of them have completed the import substitution process or are at
the final stage.
Nefis Cosmetics is in process of modernization and
reconstruction of production facilities. Based on market demands, the company
develops new types of products.
According to the results of the six months of 2022, the manufacturer occupies
a leading position in the market of dishwashing detergents. Nefis Cosmetics
managed to get ahead of foreign competitors. “There are more than 150 items of
dishwashing detergents in all price segments and consumer niches. The company's
share in this category has reached 35%,”- said I.Shakirov.
The company also implemented an investment project to
expand and re-equip the production of household chemicals and technical
products of the enterprise for a total of 3.3 billion rubles. Thus, the
production capacity of synthetic detergents has reached 26 thousand tons per
month, and this indicator for liquid detergents has increased by 102 thousand
tons per year. It is expected that by 2024 the production capacity of gel laundry
detergents will increase by 2.5 times.
