Novolyalinsky Pulp and Paper Mill on July 29 launched a new paper slitting machine. Investments in the project will have a positive effect on the socio-economic development of the city and the lives of people, says Igor Zelenkin, Deputy Minister of Industry and Science of the Sverdlovsk Region.
“Thanks to the implementation of an investment project worth 40 million rubles, the plant can significantly expand its portfolio of orders. The modernization is going in parallel with the implementation of the national project “Increasing labor productivity and supporting employment”. Already in September, under the guidance of experts from the regional competence center, the plant will begin to implement lean manufacturing tools. Such a systematic approach to the development of the enterprise allows significantly expanding the planning horizon, ensuring a stable income for the plant’s employees, and fulfilling all social obligations, ”said Igor Zelenkin.
The commissioning of the new equipment will allow expanding the range of paper by size, saving up to 82% of electricity, and increasing the company’s price competitiveness.
“Previously, the mill produced paper in a roll with a width of more than three meters. It is not always convenient for transportation and for subsequent use. The new equipment will make it possible to react as sensitively as possible to the requests of our customers, cutting paper into more convenient formats at a speed of up to one thousand meters per minute, ”said the director of the enterprise Vyacheslav Lobanov.
Note that the Novolyalinsky Pulp and Paper Mill is one of the oldest enterprises in the Sverdlovsk Region. During the war years, the equipment of two cartridge factories from the central part of the country was evacuated here. In February 1942, the plant sent to the front the first batch of small-caliber rifle cartridges, aviation shells and mortar shells. In honor of the labor valor of the workers of the Combine and Plant No. 529, who worked under the motto “Everything for the front, everything for victory”, on July 29, a memorial plaque was opened at the enterprise.
