An official opening ceremony of the production center "OBO Bettermann" in Russia was held


On September 29, 2016 at the territory of special economic zone "Lipetsk" the grand opening of the German company "OBO Bettermann" plant, which specializes in the manufacture of cable support systems, lightning protection systems and fasteners, was held.
The new production facility is one of the largest and the ninth in a row holding area.
The volume of investments in the project amounted to more than 2 billion Rubles. The holding production facility covers 6 hectares. The total area of ​​the plant is 20 000 sq. m. The new industrial facility of the concern expects to provide more than 200 workplaces in the high-tech and high-performance production. Currently, the factory employs 100 specialists.
At the opening of the plant Ulrich Betterman, President of "OBO Bettermann" said that, despite the crisis in the global and the Russian economies, as well as the prices stagnation for hydrocarbons, the emerging trend of Russia departing from a resource model creates new opportunities for the development of the economy of knowledge and the opening of high technology manufacture. These preconditions, as well as the growing demand for high-quality products and equipment for the wiring brought the management of the holding to the decision to expand the business internationally.

"In the next 5 years we hope to reach 15 percent income level of our Russian companies in the frame of the whole holding", - said Andreas Bettermann, Director of the company "OBO Bettermann" in the fourth generation.
Considering the strategic position of Russia, the concern is considering the export of the Lipetsk plant products to the neighboring countries, including China, as one of the promising directions of development of the Russian capacities.
