the Modul com­pany (Gant­se­vichi, Brest oblast) is ex­plor­ing new mar­kets.

The com­pany has signed a con­tract with Rus­sia to sup­ply cross-linked poly­eth­yl­ene pipes, polypropy­lene pipes and polypropy­lene-based heat shrink­able sleeves. The com­pany al­ready shipped RUB4 mil­lion worth of prod­ucts to Rus­sia. The 2011 ex­port plan is worth RUB15 mil­lion.

This is a new line of busi­ness for the com­pany. In 2008-2010 over Br19 bil­lion was in­vested into the up­grade of the com­pany and build­ing up its pro­duc­tion ca­pac­i­ties. Over this pe­riod the com­pany started pro­duc­ing poly­eth­yl­ene pipes, cross-linked poly­eth­yl­ene pipes, pipes from plas­tic-coated metal and spe­cial pieces.

In Jan­uary-july this year Modul man­u­fac­tured Br20.8 bil­lion worth of prod­ucts, up 40% over the same pe­riod in 2010. The com­pany used to sup­ply its prod­ucts only to the do­mes­tic mar­ket, but has re­cently dis­cov­ered that it has a con­sid­er­able ex­port po­ten­tial.
