A new production line for incontinence care products will be built in Russia by SCA following the company’s assessment that the market for incontinence care products is expected to grow considerably in the near future. SCA has been established in the Moscow region since 2008, when it installed baby diaper manufacturing lines there.
To meet the anticipated consumer demand, SCA has decided to invest in a production line for incontinence products at its plant in the city of Veniov in the Tula district some 180 kilometers south of Moscow.
SCA–once the plant is in place during 2011–will be able to substantially decrease its import from its plants in Olawa, Poland, or Gennep, Holland. Thereby, high costs for transports and duties will be lowered.
The investment for the new production line for incontinence care products will be approximately SEK 138 million.
