Petrozavodsk distillery began its work again
The production line was solemnly launched by the acting head of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov and the new owner of the enterprise — the president of the Alkovorld company.
Acting Head of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov was present at the solemn ceremony of launching the line on July 17.
“In a short time, we were able to go a difficult path: at the beginning of the year the plant stopped production, but we found a new investor in just a couple of months,” said the head of the region at the opening. — The investor has extensive experience, including the world one. We helped to quickly go through the registration procedure. I would like to note that the company is registered in the territory of Karelia. Many brands have already managed to return to the technological chain.
Now the company employs over 100 people. They produce 4 types of vodka, in August they plan to launch the Karelsky Balsam line. The drinks are filtered through a four-meter carbon filter. The water is purified using a new technology using shungite. By the end of the year, the enterprise plans to produce about 200 thousand decaliters, next year the volume is planned to be increased to 400 thousand decaliters.
The plant’s activities at the first stage will bring about half a billion rubles to the budget of Karelia in the form of excise taxes. The President of the Alkovorld company Alexander Glus thanked Artur Parfenchikov for his active position in the issue of resuming the work of the enterprise, noting that with his help it was possible to avoid bureaucratic delays: about a month passed from the moment of purchasing the enterprise to its launch.
“On the basis of this enterprise, we want to build a supermodern production facility that will be able to compete not only at the federal level, but also compete with the world’s monsters,” said Alexander Glus. — The whole base is here for this. We have brought here our quality technologies, marketing and promotion technologies, and we hope that in the near future this enterprise will become the pride and visiting card of Karelia.
Artur Parfenchikov noted that the government will continue to support the dispensaries at all stages of development.
