Demand grows for goods made in Kazakhstan
Zhambyl region enterprises are expanding export potential. According to specialists, demand for Kazakhstani goods is growing abroad due to an increased quality of the products. For instance, the enterprise that manufactures high quality energy-saving lamps ‘Energy Taraz’ started exporting to Russia. The enterprise’s annual capacity makes up nearly 10,000 energy-saving lamps.
BERDIBEK SYZDYKOV, DEPUTY DIRECTOR, ENERGY TARAZ:
We pay particular attention to increasing Kazakhstan’s content. Thus, today, 70% of the raw materials and equipment we use were produced in Kazakhstan. The demand grows due to the high quality of the product. Russia is one of the largest importers.
The plant’s largest workshop manufactures the LED bulbs that consume 4-5 times less power compared to incandescent lamps. The enterprise produces around 40 types of lamps. The plant manufactured goods worth over 1 billion tenge last year and plans to increase capacity by several times in the near future.
SERGEY LUKINSKY, LED LIGHTING PRODUCTION MANAGER:
The quality of our products is higher than of the Chinese analogues. We purchase light-emitting diodes in Germany. We use American ‘Krin’ LEDs and the Turkish brand ‘Osram’. These diodes are characterized by good ratio of lumens per watt. It is the best in the world, we can say.
Zhambyl gypsum plant is gaining momentum. The enterprise became a pioneer in perlite manufacturing to ensure Kazakhstan’s competitiveness in the global market. This material is used not only in construction but also in agricultural industry. The plant managers are planning to export Kazakhstani perlite to other Central Asian countries. The project is worth 2.5 billion tenge.
YERMEK MOMYNOV, WORKER:
This workshop’s capacity is 7 tons of perlite. You can see production stages on the screen: calcite crushing, drying. The third department sorts the product. The market’s demand is 0.160 micron fraction – the amount that we produce.
Last year, Zhambyl gypsum plant won in a nomination "The Best Product of the Production Value" in the ‘Altyn Sapa’ competition. The enterprise manufactures over 300,000 tons of raw materials per year.
BOLAT TALASBAYEV, VICE PRESIDENT, ZHAMBYL GIPS:
The manufacturing has a 100% degree of automation, the highest environmental friendliness, which meets the most stringent requirements. We have launched production of expanded perlite as an additive for dry mixes. It will be used in agriculture and oil industry.
