The Industrial zone of Almaty plans to launch 12 new production facilities in 2018. The projects are related to engineering, construction industry, pharmaceuticals, food and chemical industries. Thus, the city will begin to produce adhesive tapes, frozen dough, cables, medical products, polymer products and so on. In addition, the construction of a greenhouse complex for growing vegetables and a natural stone processing plant will be completed on the territory of the industrial zone. This was announced by director of LLP "Industrial Zone of Almaty" Adil Burlibayev.
For example, the Almaty producer of frozen dough LLP "GROUP NAK 8" will produce 60 kinds of blanks for subsequent baking of bread, rolls, pies, muffins, biscuits, etc. It is planned that the plant will produce 2 thousand kilograms of frozen products per day. The enterprise intends to sell semi-finished products in cafes, restaurants and hotels of the city. In addition, the pharmaceutical company LLP "Almerek" will produce medical products, including test tubes, spatulas, gynecological mirrors, etc. Construction of the plant in the territory of the Almaty industrial zone will allow the company to expand the production area 3 times.
In addtion of Almaty entrepreneurs, the construction of plants by transnational companies are under way in the territory of the Industrial zone of Almaty.
"We have projects involving Japanese and Chinese capital. For example, redeployment and expansion process of production is carried out by the enterprise for the production of engineering security systems of "Tokyo Rope Almaty" LLP, and "Asia Steel Pipe Company" is building a plant for the production of large-diameter steel pipes. Investments of the Japanese company to launch the plant, which will be located on 4 hectares in the Industrial Zone, will amount to about 3.6 billion tenge. For "Asia Steel Pipe Company" 17.6 hectares of land with an investment of 33 billion tenge are allocated", said the director of the Almaty Industrial Zone.
As the speaker noted, the residents find the Indtrial zone as the most profitable offer due to the possibility of obtaining a piece of land with a ready infrastructure. A resident can lease a land for up to 3 years, buy it out in the ownership or receive a land as a full-time grant, that is, free of charge.
In addition, Burlibayev spoke about the multiplicative effect of the zone for both business and citizens. For example, the launch of enterprises will create about 5 thousand jobs, the products will be sold in the domestic market, which will partially solve the issue of import substitution. Also, most enterprises are export-oriented, the delivery of goods will be carried out to the countries of near and far abroad.
"The purpose of such a large-scale project is the removal of industrial enterprises outside the city within the framework of the Almaty agglomeration. In the future, this will reduce the traffic load in the central areas of the city and improve the ecological situation of the city", summarized Burlibayev.
