PJSC 'Nizhnekamskneftekhim'


They Shared their Experience: today, a visiting republican meeting was held at Polymatiz subsidiary

Today, the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Tatarstan, Aleksey Savelchev, as well as the heads of large enterprises of the republic, visited JSC Polymatiz to get acquainted with operation of the line for production of protective masks and exchange experience.

JSC Polimatiz is a subsidiary of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and one of the four largest producers of nonwoven materials in Russia. In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the enterprise focused on solving the republican task and increased the production of non-woven propylene medical material. On April 12, 2020, they began to produce their own personal protective devices. For this purpose, Nizhnekamskneftekhim purchased a production line for manufacture of protective masks. It was mounted within a short time. On April 10, equipment arrived from China to Kazan Airport on a Ruslan aircraft, and on April 11, the production process was already in full swing and all the mechanisms for producing such high-quality and demanded products were adjusted. On 13 April petrochemical staff received the first batch of medical masks directly from the assembly line. 4 thousand masks were produced on the third day of operation.

Petrochemical staff managed to cope with the assigned mission and were the only ones to reach the design capacity of the installed line in the shortest possible time.

Director of JSC Polimatiz, Mr. Radik Yarullin, familiarized Mr. Aleksey Savelchev, Deputy Minister, and the heads of enterprises of the Republic with production operation. He told about the equipment features, as well as of how the plant’s specialists managed to achieve the target figures in such a short time.

- A month has passed since the launch of the line. In addition, today together with colleagues who launched the same type of lines at their enterprises we have analyzed the results of our work for this period. And the most significant results, from the point of view of productivity and technology, have been achieved by Polymatiz. This demonstrates a high training level of local specialists – engineering & technical staff. I am grateful to the management of PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim and TAIF JSC for the tremendous and prompt work in this direction ,”noted Alexey Savelchev, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Tatarstan during the meeting.

Currently, up to 65 thousand pieces of masks are made at the production line per day, and this number will increase for another 5 thousand pieces in the nearest future. Over 1.4 million masks distributed to TAIF Group employees, as well as employees of city and republican medical and social institutions, working with a large number of people, have been produced since the start-up of the assembly line.

So, for example, today, petrochemical employees donated 5 thousand protective masks produced on this assembly line to workers of the Nizhnekamsk central district multidisciplinary hospital.
