Present on the Russian market since 1994, Porcher Industries decides to move closer to its customers and markets. On December 18, the industrial group, specialized in technical textiles, inaugurates a new plant (Porshe Sovrememiye Materialy), in Koryakovo, 80 km from Moscow.

This new manufacture (the 13th for the group) is dedicated to the production of high performance fabrics, including industrial and aerospace applications. Victor Bourkov, Sales Manager for the Russia  and CEI area : "we will manufacture high performance carbon fabrics. They are used in the design of aircraft such as the Airbus (Porcher Industries is qualified for the Airbus A350 programme) but also in the manufacture of building reinforcement fabrics. “



Henri Brosse, Porcher Industries Group Managing Director explains the decision to reinforce the presence of the company in Russia: "In the Automotive and Defense field for example, Russian manufacturers are turning away from traditional materials – steel and aluminium. They are now interested in composite material, which is a durable, lighter and more corrosion-resistant material. We have an expertise of more than 50 years in the technical textile weaving. Our expansion is therefore legitimate for the Russian market."



Florent Dumel, plant manager of PSM:  "we have a surface of 3000 square meter. The production team, 10 people, has been trained in 2012 in Le Grand Lemps (Isère, France), our French plant specialized in weaving of carbon".  Porcher Industries plans to produce 10 tons of fabrics in 2013 and plans to produce over 200 tons in 2017.
