Published on 2010-04-28. Author : SpecialChem

ZAO (JSC) Empils has summed up the results of the 1st quarter of 2010. Sales of paints and varnishes amounted to 7,895 tons that is 17 % more than in January-March of the last year.

Empils has continued its effective distributor network development course and market launch of up-to-date and sought-after products. In the beginning of the year the company has declared updating of the decorative coatings product portfolio and has conducted restyling of popular trade marks of a mass segment - EMPILS-GOST and Rastsvet (Rastsvet ™ has received the BRAND OF THE YEAR/EFFIE-2009 award).

This year ZAO Empils works under direct contracts with more than 130 companies and 7 federal chains. Empils has signed product supply agreements with large international and federal retailers: Leroy Merlin, Castorama, HomeCenter, Stroydepo, Baucenter, OBI and K-Rauta; for some of them Empils also produces private label products.

Sales in the states of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kirghizia and Mongolia) have considerably grown (33 %); the first shipments of products to Turkmenia have taken place.

Sales of the industrial coatings manufactured by ZAO Empils have grown more than threefold in the 1st quarter of 2010 in comparison with the same period of the last year. Large industrial enterprises are among Empils' customers: Rostselmash, Severstal, Tomskneft, Gazpromtransgaz, Volga Shipping, Lukoil, Irkutskenergo, Rostvertol and Mostotryad-10.

The reconstructed manufacturing line was launched in Empils' main enamel shop. Thus, the first stage of the program of modernization of the enterprise calculated for 3 years has finished. Innovations will allow increasing flexibility of production and labor productivity, reducing time of production of paint and varnish batch, reducing raw material and finished goods losses, and also improving working conditions and minimizing production influence on environment.

In 2010 Empils plans to increase sales of paint and varnish in Russia and Central Asia up to 65,000 tons (in 2009 - 60,275 tons).
