BREST, 15 September (BelTA) – A Moldovan investor is mulling over setting up a wine-making facility in Brest, Brest First Vice Mayor Vadim Kravchuk told BelTA.
“At one of exhibitions in Minsk, the delegation of Brest met top managers of a Moldovan group of companies that produces wine. We discussed the possibility to set up a manufacturing facility in Brest,” Vadim Kravchuk said. “At a recent event in Gomel, the Moldovan partners reaffirmed their intention to invest in opening their branch in Brest,” he added.
The Moldovan investor was attracted by the logistics capacity of Brest, especially the western direction. The city is ready to allocate a suitable site, including in the territory of the local free economic zone.
“The real estate center of Brest offers about 10,000 m2 for manufacturing facilities. Those unoccupied sites feature buildings and structures, communication lines. We plan to address all the organizational issues by the end of the year. We will try to put the facility into operation in 2021,” Vadim Kravchuk noted.
The investor proposes setting up a bottling line for Moldovan wines in Brest. The company also needs warehouses for storing packaging and finished products. The facility will create at least 25 jobs.
