SIBUR sells Oka-Polymer Industrial Park

Feb '14
SIBUR has closed the sale of the 100% stake in Oka-Polymer Industrial Park located in Dzerzhinsk, the Nizhny Novgorod Region, to Tosol-Sintez, a resident of the park. The Oka-Polymer industrial park was launched in June 2012 as a service company to develop the production site of the former Caprolactam plant in Dzerzhinsk’s Eastern Industrial Zone. 
 
The park covers an area of 300 ha, offering its tenants over 500,000 sq m of existing facilities to lease or purchase. The park’s benefits include advantageous geographical location, availability of resources and quick production launch capability. Currently, the park provides production facilities to 26 tenants. Over 1,200 new jobs have been created on the production site, with committed investments in new production launches in excess of RUB 3.6bn.
 
The sale of the industrial park is part of SIBUR’s strategy of divesting non-core assets. Tosol-Sintez plans to secure big investments for the Oka-Polymer industrial park’s development, create new jobs, and boost tax proceeds for the budgets of the city of Dzerzhinsk and Nizhny Novgorod Region were made part of the deal. 
 
Tosol-Sintez fully supports and will carry on with the current business plan for the industrial park’s development. With Tosol-Sintez fully involved, the number of the park’s tenants is expected to increase to 50 by the end of 2014. 
 
Tosol-Sintez intends to make a particular focus on science-based and high technology production to leverage its competencies in processing polymers and organic synthesis products along with expertise in marketing and distribution management. Tosol-Sintez is going to further convert the production site to meet up-to-date standards, and improve service offering for the tenants.
