In Kazan, under the chairmanship of Prime Minister of Tatarstan Aleksey Pesochin, a meeting of the commission for considering applications for the conclusion of agreements on the implementation of the activities of the PSEDAs “Naberezhnye Chelny”, “Zelenodolsk” and “Chistopol” is to be restrained. Representatives of manufacturing companies talked about the developments and application prospects of their projects in the PSDEA.

Thus, the project of Smartmodul PLC is aimed at the manufacture of modular buildings, structures in Naberezhnye Chelny, said its founder Aydar Usmanov:

“The project is new, the company was created quite recently. It is planned to invest about 24 million rubles during the period of its implementation. It’s expected to create around 98 jobs — that’s the number of people I think we’re going to hire by 2024. We’re going to gradually increase production volumes.

The company will help you figure out how to produce modular structures, in what time frame, how much it will cost. The founder invests his own funds in the project. Usmanov explained the choice of Naberezhnye Chelny by the fact that he himself grew up in this city – the founder always had a desire to start a business here.


Konstantin Naumov, the technical director of Lunga PLC, which produces aluminum lighting poles, explained the profitability of investments in Naberezhnye Chelny’s PSEDA:

“A number of tax advantages and administrative preferences can reduce the burden on the administrative apparatus, respectively, it is possible to devote more effort to production. Less cost for production start-up, production support and maintenance.

There is also the largest manufacturer of aluminum rolled products in Naberezhnye Chelny, which can produce a profile according to company dies. Thus, this allows Lunga PLC to use its own developments. In addition, the largest anodizing plant in Russia is located in Naberezhnye Chelny (anodizing is a protective decorative layer on the surface of metals – editor’s note). Placing production in the automotive city avoids logistics costs.

The company opened on June 1, 2022. In the first month of summer, more than 150 LED complexes were shipped to Kerch. About 36 million rubles have been invested, after joining PSEDA, it is planned to invest another 27 million by the end of this year.

“Immediately after becoming residents of PSEDA, we buy equipment, start production. We have 200 jobs. Our project is obtained entirely from borrowed money.

It is calculated that construction organizations will purchase products. For example, according to the “Our Yard” program, implemented in the republic, curbs and cobblestones are constantly in demand.


Director of Energoinnovation PLC Ilnur Mubarakshin said the company’s project involves the production of switchboard equipment and the production of other plastic products. The company has been a resident of the PSEDA since December 2020. He explained his presence at the meeting by the need to modify the existing agreement.

“We are very happy, at all stages of submitting applications, we have been actively helped and encouraged by the [republican] Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Finance and AIR.

It is expected to reach its full design capacity in 2023, the development of new types of products is planned for this year. There is an increase in the number of jobs in the company.


Mubarakshin notes that there are many manufacturers of switchboard equipment, but because this type of business covers electrical equipment so widely, there is enough work for everyone and everyone finds their field.
