Resident for five

Thanks to the TOR regime, TechnoNICOL in Khabarovsk will save 50 million rubles annually

In the fall of 2015, TehnoNICOL Far East LLC, a subsidiary of the TechnoNICOL group of companies, received the certificate of the resident of the leading development territories under the number 5. The investor recognizes that it will save over 500 million rubles in tax benefits received in the TOR. For the first ten years of the project. From the owner's point of view, this is a shortening of the payback period of the enterprise and increasing the competitiveness of products, the first confirmation of which has already been received: of 750 thousand cubic meters of thermal insulation, which this year the new plant is to produce, about 100 thousand cubic meters will be exported to China.

Resident for five
Business "TekhnoNIKOL" for the production of roofing, waterproofing and thermal insulation materials is the largest in Europe and the CIS. And in 2007 year the company appeared in Asia. Having bought Khabarovsk factory "Basalit DV", successfully working with 60-ies, "TechnoNIKOL" modernized it. But after a while it became obvious that the 250 thousand cubic meters of products received in Khabarovsk did not saturate even the local construction market, in which large projects have been implemented in recent years. And next to the Russian Far East are huge markets in Asia, where domestic insulation from natural materials has always had great competitive advantages. The new Far Eastern economic policy, announced by the state in 2014, arrived just in time.

The federal center promised to provide tax and administrative benefits to those who decide to invest in new enterprises in the east of the country. Specially for investors, the territories for outstripping socio-economic development (TOR) began to be created. The first in Russia rightfully appeared TOP "Khabarovsk": to the Far Eastern capital investors always showed the greatest interest. The project "TechnoNICOL" to expand the production volumes to 750 thousand cubic meters per year received the certificate of the resident of the TOP for the number 5. Having become formally the fifth, the plant "TechnoNIKOL" opened one of the first - in August 2016 year.

In the line of the new enterprise, at the beginning of the year 2017 came to full design capacity - more than 100 denominations of thermal insulation produced by the latest technology. Insulation from materials based on stone wool is widely used in industrial and residential construction to reduce heat losses of shops and hangars, technical insulation and fire protection, insulation of facades, roofs, soundproofing of floors and partitions. In private and cottage building material is used for insulation of roofs, facades, balconies and walls. An adjacent sphere is the production of sandwich panels.

The use of modern thermal insulation materials can reduce heat losses by up to 49% and, accordingly, reduce future operating costs for buildings and structures. According to expert estimates, about 60% of insulation consumption is provided by construction organizations, 20% - by industrial enterprises and by 10% - by retail buyers and utilities. On mineral stone wool, produced on the basis of basalt, account for up to 40% of sales.

EastRussia Help. GC "TechnoNIKOL" unites 51 plant, including eight mineral wool productions, with a total annual turnover of more than 70 billion rubles. The launch of the company TekhnoNIKOL Far East increased the production of thermal insulation in the macroregion tripled. The volume of GK's own investments in the project is 2,04 billion rubles, including 980 million rubles. - in the equipment. The payback period for the stone wool production line is 7 years with an internal rate of return of 9%. In 2016, the company provided work for 120 employees. Since 2017, 11 workplaces have been created, staff are still being selected for them. Forecast revenue for 2017 year - up to 1,29 billion rubles.

The president of TechnoNIKOL, Sergey Kolesnikov, explains that the decision to develop production on the basis of the Khabarovsk TOR for GK was strategically important. "This contributed, on the one hand, to a more rapid implementation of the project, on the other hand, it will increase the payback," the top manager emphasizes. He recalls that the construction of a new enterprise coincided with the crisis. "As a result of the devaluation of the ruble, construction costs increased significantly, without the benefits provided, the payback period could be about 10 years. Thanks to entering the TOP, the expected return on investment will be about 7 years, "he explains.

The investor himself brought the communications to the site, spending on it about 20 million rubles. Own funds. The engineering infrastructure for the residents of the TOP is obliged to build the state, so the company will file an application for compensation of the costs incurred, specify in "TechnoNIKOL". And the savings on taxes in 2015-2025 years, calculated in the company, will give a gain of more than 500 million rubles. In this case, the plant, underline in "TechnoNIKOL", has already begun to give a real return to the budget system. Having privileges on taxes on profits and property, the resident pays for employees personal income tax and deductions, albeit reduced by the amount of benefits, to extra-budgetary funds. In 2016, TechnoNICOL Far East has replenished budgets of all levels for 12 million rubles.

The investor’s products have been present on the domestic market of the macroregion for a long time. At the same time, there is potential for growth, according to TechnoNICOL. Thus, according to the results of 2015, in the DFO, about 7,4 kg of insulation based on stone wool per capita was consumed, a similar indicator in the center of Russia - 11 kg per capita. During this period, the Far East consumed only 4% of the volume of sales of thermal insulation in Russia. The decline in housing construction by 9%, recorded in the region at the end of 2015, was suspended in 2016 due to state-supported mortgages. Last year, around the Far Eastern Federal District, about 2,18 million square meters were commissioned. meters of housing - on 2% less than a year earlier. In four regions of the Russian Federation, including Yakutia, rates even increased.

But TechnoNICOL does not hide the fact that the "highlight" of the project is the proximity of production to the markets of the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, and the manufacturer has already started using this advantage. Last year, about 50 thousand cubic meters of rock wool from Khabarovsk had already been delivered to China, in plans for 2017, a doubling of the figure. By 2019, the new plant can supply up to 20% of the total output to this country. Supplies of stone wool to Japan - at the negotiation stage, South Korea, Mongolia, Vietnam - in the future.

The PRC market is the most promising for "TechnoNICOL" products, since the Chinese economy, despite the difficulties experienced by the whole world, continues to grow. As a result of 2016, China's GDP increased by 6,7%. And although this is the lowest figure since 1990, the government's policy aimed at supporting growth "contributes to an annual increase in construction volumes and an increase in the consumption of high-quality mineral insulation," TechnoNICOL notes. According to analysts of the company, following the results of 2015 year, the consumption of rock wool per capita in China was only 2 kg - this is almost five times lower than in Russia.

However, the location of the enterprise advantageous from the point of view of logistics is limited by the underdevelopment of the border infrastructure. Now the export of TechnoNICOL products in the Far East can only go through Primorsky Krai: through the ports of Vladivostok and the East and land crossings of Pogranichny-Suifenhe. This creates a great dependence on tariffs for the services of road transport enterprises and the capacity of border crossings.

"Any major project in the Far East in connection with a small domestic market will be export-oriented," says Sergei Kolesnikov, president of TechnoNIKOL. "In addition to the lack of roads and bridges that would help ease logistics in Asian countries, the work of customs crossings should be significantly improved: Increase the time of work, provide fast modern equipment. And, first of all, to create equal conditions for all exporters. " As an example, he cites the situation of last summer, when trucks with products "TechnoNIKOL" "stood on the border for several days." "We watched customs officers pass forest exporters first, although the forest is raw materials, and we export products with high added value," says Sergey Kolesnikov.

Another problem of organizing exports to China, he said, is the lack of the ability to travel through the territory of one country on trucks registered in the second: "At the moment, at the border, we are forced to reload products from Russian trucks to Chinese ones, and vice versa." The agreement allowing to avoid transshipment operates with European states, which “significantly reduces time and money costs and increases the competitiveness of our producers”. The same is necessary to revive trade between Russia and China, he insists. “We raised this issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but its solution depends on both the Russian and Chinese sides. I hope that the situation will change in the near future, ”says Sergey Kolesnikov.

In general, according to his assessment, the TOP in the Far East turned out to be a tool "extremely interesting for investors": they even "quite successfully compete with Chinese parks on the benefits provided, salary levels, terms of approvals." "However, there is still not enough infrastructural security: good roads, connections to electricity, water supply and sewage networks, and so on," the president of TechnoNikol sums up.
