Citec has received an order from the Russian company NPF Metallimpress LLC for the process design of a paint production facility for their end-customer Jotun. The facility will be built in the Leningrad region, Russia.

Citec is responsible for delivering the preliminary and basic design for the complete industrial process, process ventilation and process electrical supply of the production facility. This cross-border cooperation project involves mechanical and process design experts in Citec’s local offices in Russia, Sweden, Finland and India.

“Two of the main reasons we received this order was our successful cooperation in the previous industrial project with this customer, as well as the fact that we have a local office with experts in Moscow”, says Magnus Forsbäck, General Director for Citec Russia.

The end-customer Jotun Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of paints, coatings and powder coatings. Their product range includes products to protect and decorate surfaces in the residential, shipping and industrial markets. Jotun’s headoffice is in Sandefjord, Norway.

Jotun is planning to build 30 new paint production facilities within the next decade. “We are very pleased to receive this order to take part in the creation of this paint production facility for Jotun, as this is hopefully the first of many joint projects”, says Hans Paulsson, Director, Process Industry & Manufacturing, Citec Group Oy Ab.
