On August, 1st 2007 "Viysky Woodworking Plant" - a new strategic factory of Sverdlovsk region woodworking industry was put into operation in Nizhny Tagil. The plant construction was led by Mr. E. Rossel, the Sverdlovsk region governor and was supported by the Sverdlovsk Region government and Nizhny Tagil's administration.
At the opening ceremony Mr. E. Rossel, the governor of the Sverdlovsk Region remarked that the start-up of the modern woodworking plant would become "the first step to logging enterprises' revival around Nizhny Tagil and to construction of similar complexes".
The plant is expected to output high-quality glued panels and milled dimensions. The plant is capable to process about 82 thousand cubic meters of round wood per year and to produce about 24 thousand cubic meters of finished products.
Viysky DOK, which it took to build less than one and a half year, is outfitted with advanced equipment. At the plant we implement cost effective methods of radially sawing logs for producing export-oriented non-commodity dimension products.
"Viysky DOK" project has been included into a list of priority investment projects of forest field development by Industry and Energy Ministry of Russian Federation Order ¹ 4 of January 16th, 2008 (the official project title is "Creating of a Plant with a Fully Integrated Manufacturing Process and own Timber Cutting Cycle in the Sverdlovsk Region".) The Sverdlovsk Region Ministry of Natural Resources designated to the plant a forest fund with a logging site of 200 000 cubic meters' annual yield. "Viysky DOK" operation will allow to obtain a major growth for high-quality products output made of Ural timbers.
