The company "Leader Steel Vostok" received the status of a resident of the Free Port of Vladivostok in September of last year, and already this summer opened its own production in Ussuriysk. At the plant, where more than 20 people work, the galvanized steel, imported from China in multi-toned rolls, is cleaned, polished, dried, cut, applied to the ground and the polymer coating, and again rolled into rolls. The resulting products - rolled steel with a polymer coating - goes to the enterprises that produce building materials: metal, profiled, sandwich panels, pipes. The total investment in the project amounted to about 58 million rubles. The capacity of the enterprise is about 80 thousand tons of steel per year. 
The founder of OOO Lider Steel Vostok is a Chinese citizen who has been working in Russia for a long time, explains company representative Olga Polyakova. The idea to create in Primorsky Krai the production of steel with polymer coating arose from the investor in view of the obvious need for such products of the local market: the nearest similar production is in Khabarovsk. "In Primorsky Krai, there is no such line, the products have to be transported from outside the region.In Primorye, our products are cheaper due to saving on delivery, there is the possibility of sending by rail and then by sea," the representative of the company explains. Steel produced in Ussuriisk in rolls is already dispersed throughout the Far East.

So far, the resident has placed the Chinese equipment purchased from one of the local enterprises in a rented facility, but expects to build his own workshop in the future. The company plans to place a line for applying zinc coating to steel there. "The preferences of the FPV resident allowed to reduce the cost of finished products and enter the regional market. The company plans to open a representative office in Moscow and launch a line for applying galvanized coating in the Primorsky Territory, which will make it possible to replace imported goods on the Russian domestic market," says the general director of the company Zhou Ili ...

According to Olga Polyakova, the Vladivostok Free Port regime allowed the company to bring in specialists from China who can work on the production line. "We do not train such specialists in the Primorye, they are not trained, thanks to the benefits of the Free Port, we delivered certified employees without quotas and we can resolve the issue with the staff at any time." This is a very big advantage, simply colossal, "the representative of the investor company admits. The enterprise has already felt savings on payments to social funds, and in the future plans to use the right to create a free customs zone for the import of equipment: it is envisaged for a business plan and the site for the customs post is designed.
