Plans to build factory in Belarusian Pinsk to make plastic parts for accumulators

PINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – Plans have been made to build a factory in Pinsk to make plastic components for electrical batteries. The plans were mentioned as Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko came to Pinsk on a working trip, BelTA has learned.

The OOO 1AK Plastic factory will make plastic components such as bodies, lids, handles, and covers for accumulators. The enterprise is supposed to be built in the free economic zone (FEZ) Brest. To be exact, in the industrial park, which is being designed right now and will be located in Pinsk. It is an import-substituting project. These parts are primarily imported from Russia and Türkiye for now.

The enterprise intends to satisfy needs of accumulator manufacturers to the tune of up to 3 million part kits per annum. Once the project is implemented, it will be possible to offset sanctions-fueled restrictions on the import of plastic components from the European Union. Logistics costs will also be reduced. As many as 87 new jobs will be created.

The plastic parts factory is supposed to be commissioned in early 2025. Roman Golovchenko was informed about it during a tour of the OOO Zubr Energy battery factory, which also belongs to the holding company 1AK Group. Apart from that, work is in progress to increase accumulator production as part of the “One district – one project” program. Construction and installation work began in spring 2023. The startup facility that makes battery plates has been commissioned since then.

Sergei Dubnovitsky, Director of the Zubr Energy battery factory, said: “We received financing from the Development Bank of the Republic of Belarus and started implementing the project. We commissioned the first startup facility in February. New jobs are being created. The enterprise employed about 100 people at the beginning of the project’s realization. At present it employs over 200. We intend to increase the number to 300 by the end of the year after the second phase is completed. We will continue developing.”
