The project "Forestry and the production of fuel pellets" provided the annual harvest volume of 420 thousand cubic meters. The total area under the sawmill, including storage of materials and finished products, made up of 7 hectares. Borrowed funds in the project investment amounted to about U.S. $ 8.5 million.
The purpose of the investment project "Creation of high-tech plywood production" was the creation of high-tech production of birch plywood in the Kemerovo region. The estimated production capacity is 60 million cubic meters a year: 30 thousand cubic meters a year - birch plywood of different varieties and 30 million cubic meters a year - laminated plywood.
As a marketing strategy of the production was focused on high quality plywood and signing an offtake-contract with an exporter of plywood on the implementation of the total production volume, one of the most important tasks of the project was to find a reliable partner-supplier of modern high-tech equipment, allowing to complete the projected plant with the equipment of various leading manufacturers: FEZER, KUPER, ANTHON, SIMIMPIANTI etc.
The specialists of our company carried out the expertise of the package of documents available to the client and modied them in accordance with the requirements of the financial agent, resulting in the client receiving the required financial resources.
We were approached by the current management of Plant KDK (Glued Wooden Constructions PLANT) of the Vologda region, engaged in a full cycle of processing of wood: from sawing logs to the assembly of buildings and constructions. The plant consists of several production plants: sawing, drying and production of laminated wood constructions plant, which allows control on all stages of completing the order and guarantees the highest product quality.
The aim of the project was the financing of working capital and the acquisition of additional equipment for woodworking.
The specialists of "SOLEV" proposed and successfully carried out a scheme of «sale and leaseback» type. As a result, the company was able to obtain additional funds in the amount of $ 5 million for working capital and for purchasing additional equipment. Moreover, the proposed plan of action allowed to obtain a reduction of tax payments for capital investments and to reduce the costs associated with the maintenance and repair of technical equipment.
Studies of plywood market indicate an increase of the dynamics of demand for industry’s products, primarily due to the expansion of major consumer markets: the construction and furniture industry. When the Ust-Izhora plywood mill project the niche of production of 5x10 feet big-size plywood in Russia was not occupied, because domestic manufacturers did not produce such products.
The aim of the project "Modernization of Ust-Izhora plywood mill" was the expansion of production of plywood on the Ust-Izhora plywood mill. The project involved the release of an additional 55,000 cubic meters a year of birch plywood. The staff of IA "SOLEV" carried out a market research of plywood, developed a business plan for the project, provided funding organization services. Investment in the development of production amounted to more than U.S. $ 8 million.
Commissioning of the new line within this project allowed to produce high-quality plywood in a standard format of 5x5 feet, and of large-format - 5x10 feet. I addition was carried out a reconstruction of one of the production buildings and of the factory’s hulling line. Due to these activities was provided not only an increase in the volume of production of plywood, but also a substantial increase in economic efficiency and quality of production.
