KASTAMONU Joined the Vyatka Chamber of Commerce and Industry
In April 2018, KASTAMONU became a member of the Vyatka Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The membership in this organization creates a new platform for the company to expand cooperation and interaction with participants in both the wood processing industry and related industries in the Kirov Region, as well as allows protecting business interests at a new level. Let us recall that previously KASTAMONU joined the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Tatarstan and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation.
"The mission of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry is to express and protect the interests of its members in government and local self-government bodies," noted Ali Kılıç, General Director of KASTAMONU in Russia. "Since we are actively working with loggers in the Kirov Region, the participation in the activities of this organization has long been in the sphere of our interests. In addition, as a participant of the professional business community, we are interested in the civilized principles of doing business, promoting social and environmental responsibility. The Vyatka Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a good platform for the implementation of these ideas in the Kirov Region."
KASTAMONU was established in 1969 as a part of the holding HAYAT, which has been working since 1937. The annual production of wood boards at the KASTAMONU plants amounts to 5 million m3, including 2.45 million m3 of MDF and 2.55 million m3 of particleboards. KASTAMONU enters the top five largest companies in the wood processing industry in Europe. The company specializes in the manufacturing of MDF wood boards, particleboards, laminate flooring, door skin panels, glossy panels and table tops. Its annual turnover in 2015 amounted to €1 billion.
