How it all began...
From first spile to first can - only 10 months!
Specialists had been said – to build a plant for only 1 year – is too ambitious task… But… you never know what you can do till you try. And it has been built! The first pile was rammed on wasteland on 16 April 2007. On 29 February 2008 the first pilot can of “Natural sardinella in oil” was sterilized ans “sealed”. Tremendous hard work of engineers, managers, financiers, builders and adjusters is left behind. Thank them for their work! Now is the way for those who can produce veritable cans, and who will manage this high-technological equipment, who will bring «RosKon» to the global market.
«RosKon» company thanks all, who took part in designing, financing, building and equipping the complex - «Kaliningradpromproekt», «Trascapitalbank», «Litana-Kainingrad» (general contractor), «Project management service», «Rosoma», «West energetical company», «LPM-ROS» companies, all subcontracted organizations, suppliers and adjusters!
