OAO Domostroitel Krasnaya Polyana, Russian Federation
DOMOSTROITEL is a furniture producing factory, one of IKEA suppliers of solid wood articles. The factory is situated in Russia, in the south of Kirov region, in a very picturesque place on the left bank of the Vyatka river – Krasnaya Polyana. OAO Domostroitel The Vyatka river The history of DOMOSTROITEL dates back to 1944, when a house-building factory was founded. This explains the name of the factory: in Russian “Domostroitel” means “house-builder”. Since 1967 the factory started to produce container-houses for the regions with winter temperature – 30 ºC. In 1981, due to development of oil and gas industry, the factory started to produce container houses for regions with temperature up to - 50 ºC.
The factory developed into a large-scale enterprise with 3 main directions of production: • - sawmilling and woodworking, • - house-building and • - production of soft fiberboard. • In 1992 the factory became an open joint-stock company. Panel production started since that year. Deliveries of different articles to domestic and foreign markets developed.

One of the biggest issues for the factory is wastes utilization. Earlier wood wastes were used for soft fiberboard production, but in 2006 this production was closed as it was not profitable and caused environment pollution. • There are installed two presses for production of wood briquettes which are very popular for houses heating. We sell briquettes to different countries in Europe. OAO Domostroitel Briquettes press Briquettes
