Raw Material Base

Availability of raw materials resources had played a key role in planning of the factory’s construction. Derussa Factory is situated in the West of Vologda region which is rich in forest resources and sawmill plants. Forests take 69% of the territory of the region (about 10 million hectares). The most valuable are coniferous species, which are our main raw material. Raw material base of soft wood exceeds 16 milliard of cubic meters, including 0.86 milliard of cubic meters of soft wood; performance stock is 776.5 million of cubic meters, rated wood cutting – 22.3 million of cubic meters per year. Resource capabilities of Vologda forests are inexhaustible, which allows us to extend the volumes of timber harvesting without any environmental damage.
