GRODNO, 2 September (BelTA) – Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Piotr Parkhomchik has visited OAO Mostovdrev, BelTA has learned.

During the visit Piotr Parkhomchik was made familiar with manufacturing facilities of the company. He went to see the company's products on display and the main manufacturing divisions. The public joint-stock company (OAO) Mostovdrev is one of the largest woodworking enterprises of the Belarusian timber, woodworking, pulp and paper industry concern Bellesbumprom.

During the visit Mostovdrev Director General Sergei Ososov said, the company now makes fiberboards, included laminated ones, as well as plywood, including moist-resistant plywood and laminated plywood. Apart from that, Mostovdrev makes sawn timber, laminated floor pavement, curved laminated wood parts, as well as synthetic resins and paper-based films for proprietary manufacturing needs.

In 2015 as a result of an investment project Mostovdrev commissioned a shop to make medium-density fiberboards (MDF) and high-density fiberboards (HDF). The production of laminated boards and floor pavement began as a result of a new investment project. About eight buildings were demolished and a virtually new shop was built. The MDF shop includes several sections: production of raw boards, lamination, and finishing. The manufacturing line can make boards which thickness varies from 4mm to 38mm. The company's output was nearly quadrupled when the shop was commissioned. The output capacity of the plant is 150,000m3 per annum, Sergei Ososov said.

By the way, last year the company finished an investment project envisaging the reconstruction of a wood-sawing and woodworking shop able to make about 50,000m3 of sawn timber per annum.

During the visit a conference was also held to discuss the operation of OAO Mostovdrev and other companies of the holding company BYSPAN amid the pressure of Western sanctions.
