German company SARSTEDT to Become Resident of Maryino Industrial Park

During the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum 2018 a trilateral agreement was signed on the construction of a new production facility at Maryino Industrial Park.

Maryino Industrial Park is an organised industrial territory in the Petrodvortsovy District of Saint Petersburg. The project is being implemented by VTB Group with the support of the Government of Saint Petersburg.

SARSTEDT Group, a German based family owned medical technology company, is acquiring a land plot of approximately four-hectare in size for industrial use in Maryino Industrial Park to build a new production facility. Total investment in the project will amount to at least RUB 750 million. The start of construction work is scheduled for 2018 and the commissioning of the plant is no later than end of 2019.
The new production facility will be equipped with state-of-the-art production equipment. At the new plant SARSTEDT will manufacture primarily blood collection systems meeting CE standards. The locally manufactured products will be supplied to medical institutions in Saint Petersburg and other Russian regions. After commissioning, approximately 40 highly productive jobs will be created over the next years.  

The agreement on the construction of the new production facility on the territory of Maryino Industrial Park between the Government of Saint Petersburg, VTB and SARSTEDT was signed by the Governor of Saint Petersburg Mr G.S. Poltavchenko, the President and Chairman of the Management Board of VTB Bank Mr A.L. Kostin and members of the SARSTEDT Executive Board Mr. Timo Schretzmair and Mr. Rainer Schuster.

“After a long selection process that almost took more than one year we believe that our decision to invest in Maryino Industrial Park provides us with all the advantages we have been searching for: proximity to our clients, access to qualified personnel, a well-developed infrastructure and a highly professional management team from VTB Development and the City of St. Petersburg to support our localisation.” said Timo Schretzmair and Rainer Schuster of SARSTEDT.


Maryino and Group of Companies “Sevcable” Signed a Cooperation Agreement

The group of companies “Sevcable” plans to set up production in Maryino Industrial Park. According to expert evaluation, investments into the new plant may amount to RUB 2-3 billion. 

On August 28, the developer of Maryino VTB Development and the group of companies “Sevcable” signed a cooperation agreement, featuring a possibility to accommodate production facilities to make cabling and wiring on the territory of Maryino Industrial Park. This agreement is bringing into life the deal made by “Rosskat” and “Sevcable” companies at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2017.

According to Artem Pidnik, CEO of GC “Sevcable”, experts assess the amounts of investments into a new plant’s setting up at about RUB 2-3 billion. He emphasized that it would be possible to announce a more precise amount of investments after approval of project requirements and design specifications for construction of new production facilities, approximately in October, 2017. At the moment, the enterprise is engaged in joint design of superconducting materials and use of composite materials in cabling and wiring products with “Rosnano” company and plans to expand the range of products at the expense of manufacturing not only cables but also other electrotechnical products.

Currently, GC “Sevcable” jointly with “Rosskat” company determine production facilities, technologies and the area of the land plot required for the new plant. At the moment, the group of companies “Sevcable” occupies the area of 14 hectares in Kozhevennaya line of Vasilyevsky Island, however, thanks to implementation of the Lean Manufacturing Program and updating, they’ve managed to decrease the required facilities down to 10 hectares. “We plan to use only the state-of-the-art world-class technological equipment at the Maryino venue, because of that the required production area should decrease as well as the area of the land plot. We’re sure that the new production site will become the first step to setting up a plant satisfying the Industry 4.0 requirements”, says Mr. Pidnik.

“We want this project to become a successful example of a plant’s transfer from the so-called ‘grey belt’ of the city to an industrial park, where it will be comfortable for production to develop. Land plots in Maryino are fully provided with road and transport infrastructure. The city planning documents were finalized and approved. All that allows after the deal for purchase of the land in the industrial park is made, to immediately start plant designing and fully bring the project into life in 1.5—2 years. Because of that I’m absolutely sure that “Sevcable” will manage to keep the time-limits, and we will help with that,” comments Alexander Parshukov, JSC VTB Development Director for investments.

We remind you that Maryino is the only in St. Petersburg industrial park in the greenfield format. The first stage of the project is 97% filled in. In 2015, the first manufacturing enterprise – the plant of Finnish paints and coating producer Teknos – started operation on the territory of Maryino, in May 2016, the plant of Russian-French DIPO auto parts company was commissioned. On May 24, 2017, the logistic complex of the “Admiral-Terminal-SV” group was opened. “yo-AUTO”, “Diesel-Energo” and “TechnoEXIM” are among the residents of the project.


Maryino is one of the leaders of the national rating of the production sites

Maryino Industrial Park was included in the top 3 of the rating of investment attractiveness of industrial parks and special economic zones. The leading positions were also taken by two projects from Tatarstan, in total 76 sites from 33 regions of Russia are represented in the rating. 

Expert Holding Analytical Center has prepared a rating of the investment attractiveness of operating industrial parks and special economic zones of Russia. The study is based on the analysis of 29 parameters divided into six groups: management company services, location, resource cost, proposed benefits, cooperation with the residents and characteristics of the location region. 

Maryino Industrial Park implemented by VTB Development scored 27.97 points out of 55. This is one of the highest results which guaranteed Maryino a leading position in the rating. As its authors note, "sites with similar results we combined into classes, AA – the most attractive parks, C – the least attractive ones. The group of the most attractive parks scored 25-27 points, the arrangement of parks within a particular group does not really matter from the point of view of a potential investor, they are all approximately equal." However, among the 7 sites from the AA class, Maryino and the Ulyanovsk industrial zone "Zavolzhye" only closing the top part of the rating belong to the greenfield format. 

Note that the ranking of industrial parks and special economic zones is aimed at providing investors with an initial guide for choosing the production location.


Governor’s Warehouse in Maryino

Gov. Georgy Poltavchenko has opened a new warehouse facility in Maryino. 

On May 24, the opening ceremony of the Admiral Logistics Group Warehouse was held in Maryino Industrial Park. The event was held as part of the city investment project tour the Governor held before the opening of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. The Governor was present at the opening ceremony of the new facility. 

“A year ago we signed an agreement on cooperation in implementing this warehouse project. It is very important that the warehouse will become an integral part of Maryino Industrial Park. City authorities will provide maximum support to these projects,” Georgy Poltavchenko said. 

The Government of St. Petersburg has been a strategic partner of Maryino Industrial Park since the early days of this project. According to Mikhail Zaytsev, Deputy Chairman of the North-Western Regional Center and Senior Vice President of  Bank VTB, the Maryino project reflects the goals of the government seeking to create and develop modern industrial infrastructure and relocate city enterprises from the city’s downtown area. “Maryino industrial park is a ready platform for enterprises in many fields and industries. Residents of the Industrial Park enjoy fully ready-to-use engineering and transport infrastructure, and the business infrastructure of Maryino, which includes a logistics facility of Admiral Company,” the expert said. 

The warehouse facility of A+ class is located at the northern border of Maryino Industrial Park on the land plot of 4.4 hectares, which Admiral Logistics Group had acquired in 2013. Construction of the new facility started after an investment agreement with the city administration was signed at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2016. Admiral Group had invested RUB 1 billion into the project, and the planned turnover is assessed at RUB 800 million per year. 

Admiral Group is one of top five major Russian regional operators of 3PL logistics market, which includes customs services and consignment storage. The company concludes consignment storage contracts with major international corporations. The Maryino warehouse complex is intended for non-food products with a narrow passage shelving system, which allows to use the space most effectively. At the moment of its official opening, the warehouse was filled to half of its capacity of 20,000 square meters. 

The facility, which was launched on May 24, is one of the first several logistics projects that Admiral is going to invest RUB 3.6 bln until 2020. The investor, recognized as one of strategic investors of St. Petersburg, intends to build a total of 4 energy-efficient warehouse facilities with the total area of over 60,000 square meters. The company’s plans also include a distribution center 12,000 square meters in area.


Maryino Welcomes Finnish Business

In the beginning of April, Maryino Industrial Park’s team presented localization opportunities in St. Petersburg to Finnish manufactures.

On April 4-5, representatives of big Finnish business, interested in launching and expanding production facilities in the North-West of Russia, visited industrial parks of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region. The events were held on the initiative of VTB Development JSC and supported by YIT Corporation, the Consulate General of Finland and Finnish-Russian Chamber of Commerce. The business tour started from the seminar “Finnish companies’ experience in their facilities accommodation in the North-West of Russia, with industrial parks as an example”. St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region investment and industrial potential was presented as its part. Maksim Meyksin, the Chairman of the Committee for Industrial Policy and Innovations, emphasized the importance of coordinated operation of the city and areas in facilities location to attract industrial investors. However, Maryino Industrial Park is still the only ‘greenfield’ area within St. Petersburg borders. The project was presented by its Director, the Managing Director of VTB Capital Asset Management Vladimir Vishnevsky and Artem Andreev, the Director for capital construction of Finnish plant Teknos that had been successfully localized in Maryino.

Mr. Vishnevsky drew attention to the fact of Maryino Industrial Park’s creating an up-to-date industrial area for a wide range of production facilities, including foreign. “We have realized the best European and Asian industrial practices in Maryino in order to meet the requirements of potential residents. But surely the deal with a foreign company became the test for our product’s quality. It helped us to try legal and organization procedures in the course of preparation process for their repetition in future. Thus, in 2012, we started negotiating accommodation of a plant of Finnish paints and coatings producer Teknos, and the project was commissioned in June, 2015”, the expert said.

“One fifth of the company’s employees from all over the world are employed at the Teknos plant located in Maryino Industrial Park and investments in it have reached EUR 20 mln”, Mr. Andreev commented. “We clearly understood the desired result even before the start of the project and selected the land plot according to the fundamental for us ‘transparency issues’. It implied a clear understanding of the land plot’s purpose, linked up mains, and specific features of dealing with the city administration, energy supplying, approving, city-planning, sanitary, environmental and other organizations. Only three plots from more than 20 areas in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region examined by us, were found suitable. Maryino`s offer was the best taking into account the results of due diligence. Over the years of joint work we never faced misunderstanding of our requirements and always got qualified and timely assistance from the managing company in the course of our project’s implementation. That’s very important”.

The second day of the business mission focused on tours over the most attractive for localization areas. In particular, a few dozens Finnish manufactures examined the Maryino Industrial Park area, its provision with access to utilities and Teknos production premises, warehouses and the R&D center.

We remind you that besides Teknos, Franco-Russian DIPO plastic machinery company was also successfully localized in the first Maryino stage. It was commissioned in 2016.


Maryino is a risk-free localization formula

Maryino Industrial park and SCHNEIDER GROUP an international consultant providing foreign companies in Russia with the back office services signed a cooperation agreement contributing industrial investments.

On the 27th of March, Maryino Industrial park and SCHNEIDER GROUP held a roundtable dedicated to business establishment and development in Russia. At the event «Business formulas: a risk-free localization» companies signed the agreement targeted towards collaboration in order to attract new industrial companies in Saint Petersburg.

«Production location of foreign companies in Russia is often difficult because of misunderstanding of local market conditions and legislation. Maryino and SCHNEIDER GROUP cooperation setting the stage and offers safety access to Russia`s market. It means providing a full site preparation for creating of manufacturing enterprises, an assistance in a building design, construction and future exploitation on our part. For SCHNEIDER GROUP it includes business advice from market entry support till legal matters with a focus on migration, labor and corporate law, » commented signing of the agreement the Vice President of VTB Bank (PJSC), Alexander Olkhovsky.

SCHNEIDER GROUP CEO Ulf Schneider noted that in seven years Russia grown from 120 to 40 place on several points including tax system in World Bank Rating. It made country more attractive for business localization in comparison to Germany. However, Russia saves bad positions about building permit that frightens a number of potential residents. «When German companies go to Russia to manufacture products, of course, they are looking for a ready infrastructure. Industrial parks and in particular Maryino are a decision that can increase fascination of localization, » said the expert.

«We have repetitively pass over a concatenation from a site selection to a factory launch with a foreign manufactures – Finnish Teknos and French DIPO. Our experience and a full site preparation allow effectively simplify and reduce the cost of standard phases of project realization, » noted Capital-Energo, LLC CEO Anatoly Neganov.

«In Maryino Industrial Park under VTB Development JSC management we see a reliable partner that show itself positively at work with foreign producers. We are determined to promote it among our clients. I`m sure that many western companies assessing possibilities for localization in the Northwest of Russia will be interested with the project» summarized Mr. Schneider


Paint R&D at Maryino

TEKNOS has opened an R&D center at Maryino Industrial Park. 

The TEKNOS plant opened at Maryino in June 2015, becoming the first production complex to start up at the industrial park, and TEKNOS’ first greenfield enterprise in Russia. 

The plant’s R&D center occupies 300 m2 and is fitted with state-of-the-art laboratory equipment. The main tasks of the R&D center are the development and adaptation of formulations for industrial and architectural-construction paint-and-coating materials and powdered paints, the investigation of new kinds of stock, the adaptation of the properties of paint-and-coating materials to consumer requirements, and the accompaniment of plant products under their introduction into the production processes of customers. 

Having its own R&D center lets TEKNOS successfully implement the full cycle of operations at the enterprise, from research and engineering to the production of paint-and-coating materials and their delivery to consumers. 

TEKNOS is one of the leading European producers of paints and coatings and the acknowledged sector leader, thanks, among other things, to the constant expansion of the capacities of its corporate R&D centers. The creation of an R&D center at the park confirms the company’s seriousness in localizing production in Russia.


New success of Maryino

Maryino has added to its list of awards with a special jury prize from the first federal competition in the area of real estate – the PROESTATE AWARDS 2016. The industrial park, which was implemented by VTB Development, was named the “Project of the Next Decade.” 

The PROESTATE AWARDS 2016 is a special competition devoted to the results of the development sector over a 10-year period and rating the most interesting and financially-successful projects among investment companies, architecture studios, designer agencies and construction organizations. 

VTB Development emerged as the leader in terms of the number of prizes collected at the PROESTATE AWARDS 2016. The company was the only player on the Russian real-estate market to receive praise from the professional community for each of the projects put up for the competition. 

Maryino Industrial Park won the special jury prize as the “Project of the Next Decade” in the nominating category “Industrial Real Estate.” 

The multifunctional complex European Embankment was the winner in the nominating category “Best Unfinished Project of the Decade.” 

Russia’s only public-administration business quarter – Nevskaya Ratusha – was among the finalists in the nominating category “Best Office Real-Estate Project,” and shared the status of “Best Architectural Project of the Decade” with another Moscow-based competitor. 

“VTB Development definitely deserves each of these awards. The company submitted to the competition not simply successful developer projects, but also the results of their implementation for specific territories and the positive changes that they are making to the life of the city. Maryino facilitates the development of Petrodvortsovy District, expands its infrastructure, and gives local residents good-quality jobs; Nevskaya Ratusha transformed an abandoned tram park into one of the city’s latest sights, attracting business, investments, locals and tourists. The European Embankment should emerge as one of the most ambitious projects in the country and complete the architectural ensemble of the Neva embankment area in the historical heart of the city,” says the General Director of PROEstate Events, Vice President of the Russian Managers’ Guild, Pavel Goncharov. 

More than 220 applications were submitted for participation in the competition in 22 nominating categories; the winners were picked by the jury, comprised of the most prominent figures on the Russian real estate market.


Maryino expands its list of sectors

As of July 2016, Maryino Industrial Park, Petrodvortsovy District, can accommodate not only manufacturing facilities, but also enterprises in the food-processing, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries. The latest phase of the project’s development was prompted by the St. Petersburg City Government’s updating of its Land Use and Development Rules. 

30 June 2016 saw the entry into force of the St. Petersburg Land Use and Development Rules (PZZ), approved by City Government Resolution No. 524 dated 21.06.2016. Pursuant to the amended PZZ, Maryino Industrial Park was classified a multifunctional subzone for production and warehouse facilities and engineering infrastructure with the code designation TPD2_3. According to the new urban-development regulations, aside from other sectors, Maryino can also accommodate enterprises in the food-processing, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries, which will expand the group of potential industrial-park residents. “Expanding the list of sectors and companies was can attract to our industrial park will definitely lend new impetus to the project’s development. Phase-one Maryino, spanning 58 ha, is already 97% occupied by residents. The new PZZ entered into force at virtually the same time as the conclusion of phase-two site development for the project, that is, at the best-possible time for us and potential residents. We’re open to new clients and ready to help them choose the right plots in view of the restrictions imposed by sanitary-protection zones,” notes Investment Director at VTB Development, Alexander Parushkov. 

According to the Head of St. Petersburg’s Petrodvortsovy District, Dmitry Popov, “the new phase in the development of Maryino Industrial Park will add an extra jolt to the investment attractiveness of St. Petersburg, which is the general objective of Strategy-2030. Implementation of the project is already having a positive impact on the economy of Petrodvortsovy District. A long-vacant territory has gained modern engineering infrastructure, and become attractive from the standpoint of advancing industry, creating new jobs, and boosting budget receipts.” 

As you may recall, on the eve of the PZZ update, Maryino Industrial Park gathered the top executives of companies in the food-processing and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as representatives of retailers in the Russian Northwest, for a discussion of the needs of production enterprises in changing economic conditions. Within the scope of the roundtable, conversation touched on the growing need for new-format distribution centers for retailers, which could spring up at industrial parks.


Maryino among the 4-best infrastructure projects in Russia!

On 17 June 2016, at a session at the 20th Anniversary St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), the results were tallied in a competition for the best investment project “Development Award 2016.” The Maryino industrial project was named one of the four-best infrastructure projects in the country. 

The “Development Award 2016” competition received 303 applications from 62 RF regions. The award encompassed eight nominating categories. Within the scope of the “Best Infrastructure Project” category, the key criteria were the stated objectives and achieved results of the project, observance of the timetable for its implementation, the nominee’s achievement of a multiplicative effect for the development of related sectors in the region and the country as a whole, and the project’s social and ecological significance.

It’s held for the purposes of stimulating investment activity and fostering a favorable investment climate in Russia. Eligible to participate in the competition are Russian legal entities. The competition welcomes both projects financed by Vnesheconombank, as well as other projects complying with competition criteria.


Maryino: open dialog with retailers and enterprises in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries

On Tuesday, 31 May, Maryino Industrial Park assembled the top executives of food-processing and pharmaceutical companies, as well as representatives of the retail industry from the Russian Northwest, for a discussion of their production operations in the changing economic conditions and the joint formulation of responses to these challenges. 

The meeting was attended by the co-owner of TD Real – Fresh Food Pavel Klyuchnik, General Director of TC Land – Dmitry Chtetsov, Technical Director of Losevo Group – Nikolay Ilyuschenko, General Director of MB NPC Tsitomed – Alexander Khromov, Commercial Director of NTFF Polisan – Dmitry Borisov, Member of the Board of Directors of the Metrika Building-Materials Chain – Alexey Khrabrov, and Head of the Office of the St. Petersburg Entrepreneurs’ Ombudsman – Konstantin Timokhin. Maryino Industrial Park was represented by the Managing Director of VTB Capital Asset Management – Vladimir Vishnevsky, and the Investment Director at VTB Development, Alexander Parushkov. 

As Alexander Parushkov noted, industrial parks are an element of infrastructure existing for residents in the format they require. “It’s important for the management company to understand market demands, look for specific partners and offer a design that’s fully adapted to the individual request. Joint dialog between representatives of the production community and industrial-park management companies makes it possible to formulate a common vision of the sort of facilities sought after by the market, and offer just such a product to producers and retailers,” stressed the expert. 

Roundtable participants discussed the current situation and the conditions created by the region for the expansion of their projects, and also shared their strategies for the implementation of import-substitution programs. However, the main focus of the discussion was further prospects, including the need for new-format distribution centers, which could spring up at industrial parks. 

“The anchor of the Maryino Industrial Park is provided by manufacturing facilities, whose specifics and requirements we understand. But over the past 4–5 months, major retailers and enterprises in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries have experienced such a surge in demand for the development of production and warehouse projects, distribution centers that we simply have to take them into consideration. All the more so, since companies in this sector are a priority in the import-substitution program, and Maryino is St. Petersburg’s only greenfield industrial park, offering fully-developed land plots with urban-planning documentation,” commented Viktor Vishnevsky.


Maryino Industrial Park celebrates its 5-year anniversary with an award

VTB Development has celebrated the five-year anniversary since the start of construction of Maryino Industrial Park. The Project Director, Managing Director of VTB Capital Asset Management JSC Vladimir Vishnevsky, and Investment Director at VTB Development, Alexander Parushkov, marked the jubilee at an award ceremony hosted by the St. Petersburg Division of the American Chamber of Commerce. Based on the voting tally of the AmCham Executive Committee, the project was presented with the Significant Achievement award for business development and high standards of business ethics. 

Every year, the St. Petersburg Division of the American Chamber of Commerce presents awards to five members that have had the greatest impact on the economy of the Northwest Region over the previous 12 months. Every company is announced the winner in one of the nominating categories – “Investor of the Year,” “Innovator of the Year,” “For Social Responsibility Achievement,” “For Significant Business Success,” and “For Efficiency.” 

The AmCham Executive Committee named Maryino Industrial Park the best project in the nominating category “For Significant Business Success,” highly praising the park’s contribution to the development of St. Petersburg industry and the efficient work of the park’s management company in creating opportunities for the localization of production and promotion of the region at the international level. 

VTB JSC Investment Director, Alexander Parushkov, emphasizes that the past year was truly a banner year for Maryino. “We completed the phase-one site development of the project, constructed a building for the management company, became the only industrial park in St. Petersburg to be represented as a site for production localization at the Import Substitution Center, and received several foreign and domestic missions and delegations. But the most important event was the launch at Maryino of its first production facility. In 2015, a plant was commissioned for the Finnish company Teknos, producing a wide assortment of architectural-construction, domestic, rust-resistant and powder paints. It’s Teknos first greenfield enterprise in Russia, with investments in its construction and equipping of roughly EUR 17 mln, and the facility currently supports more than 100 jobs,” comments the expert. 

Maryino is a long-term project, designed for growth in production volumes within the territory of the industrial zone. At present, phase one of the industrial park is more than 80% occupied, with companies such as Teknos, DIPO, Admiral-Terminal SV among its residents. 

“Exactly five years ago, on 13 April 2011, an agreement was signed marking the start of the engineering development of 130 ha in the Petrodvortsovy District of St. Petersburg. Our city has always been an industrial center of national – if not international – significance, and the goal of our industrial park is to create all of the necessary conditions for the continuation of this tradition. As the Project Director, I’m gratified that our efforts are being recognized – both by the residents choosing Maryino for the accommodation of their production facilities, as well as by our business partners, including the American Chamber of Commerce. In just the past few months we have received several awards. In December of last year, the St. Petersburg City Government named Maryino “Investor of the Year” for its implementation of the best site-development project with investments of up to 3 billion rubles. And just this February, the Association of Industrial Parks presented us with the first certificate in the Russian Northwest confirming conformance with the national standard for a period of three years,” notes Vladimir Vishnevsky, Project Director, Managing Director of VTB capital Asset Management JSC.


Visit by the General Consul of the Netherlands

On 3 March, General Consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in St. Petersburg, Hans Wesseling, made an unofficial visit to Maryino Industrial Park. 

Mr. Wesseling discussed opportunities for the localization at Maryino of international companies with the project’s management team. 

The meeting concluded with a tour of the Maryino site, during which the Investment Director at VTB Development JSC, Alexander Parushkov, discussed the unique features of St. Petersburg’s only greenfield industrial park and emphasized its advantages for the accommodation of industrial and logistics enterprises. 

“Maryino residents include the international companies Teknos and DIPO, whose successful experience in localizing production at the industrial park is garnering us the attention of other foreign companies and diplomatic missions. In general, these visits advance our objective of strengthening economic ties. Today, it’s much more advantageous not to import products, but to produce inside Russia,” says Mr. Parushkov. 

The Kingdom of the Netherlands provides Russia with plastics and plastic products, paper and carton, footwear, equipment and mechanical devices. These kinds of production facilities can be easily accommodated at Maryino Industrial Park.


Certified Maryino

Maryino Industrial Park has earned a certificate of conformance with the national standard GOST R 56301 – 2014 “Industrial Parks. Requirements” for a period of three years. On 24 February, the Association of Industrial Parks (AIP) presented the confirming document to the Project Director, Managing Director of VTB Capital Asset Management Vladimir Vishnevsky. 

Under the management of VTB Development JSC, Maryino Industrial Park underwent voluntary certification according to a system approved by Rosstandart in September 2015. According to the new rules, the only parks eligible to apply for the certificate are operating industrial parks whose management companies have the legal capacity to offer the park’s assets to its residents, and whose land plots have the appropriate designation and capability for connection to the respective power-supply, gas-supply, water-supply and sewerage networks. 

Maryino is St. Petersburg’s only greenfield industrial park. Its territory spans 130 ha. Maryino Industrial Park offers potential residents the purchase into ownership of fully-developed land plots for the construction of modern production enterprises and logistics complexes. 

“Certification according to the national standard is a formal process, but important to use from the standpoint of confirming Maryino’s conformance with all of the standards outlined by GOST. Once most of the country’s industrial parks undergo certification, I believe this document will have the same importance as a person’s passport – serious companies won’t consider uncertified parks. As of today, the territory of Maryino Industrial Park is equipped with all of the required utility networks, running to the edge of each plot offered for sale. Our residents include both Russian companies and enterprises with international capital – each of them underwent detailed procedures of on-site legal and technical analysis before being accommodated at Maryino, which confirms the high quality of our product,” says VTB Development Investment Director Alexander Parushkov. 

In 2013, Maryino has been certified by the Association of Industrial Parks according to the previous system. 

At present, Maryino Industrial Park is 81% occupied. Among our key residents: the Finnish paint-and-coating producer Teknos, the Russian-French autopart maker DIPO, and the Admiral-Terminal SV Logistics Group. 

“Certification is done on a voluntary basis and does not constitute grounds for the receipt of state support. The certificate of an operating industrial park is confirmation of recognition on the part of the expert community and industry professionals,” say AIP representatives.


Maryino Industrial Park – the best site development project in St. Petersburg

The St. Petersburg City Government has praised the contribution made by VTB Development JSC to the socio-economic development of the city. Maryino Industrial Park, under the company’s management, received the “Investor of the Year” award. Maryino was recognized as the best project in the area of site development with investments of up to 3 billion rubles. The award ceremony was held in Smolny’ Svetovoy Hall within the scope of the concluding meeting of the Governor’s Investment Council on 29 December 2015. 

“Investments in industrial projects require experience and certain competencies: unlike most other ways of investing money, they are more long-term and depend to a greater extent on public policy. In today’s environment, the development of special economic zones and new production sites is becoming the key to economic recovery. Maryino is a critical growth center – not just for St. Petersburg, but for the Northwest Region as a whole. The strategic objective of the project – creating infrastructure for the industrial development of St. Petersburg,” says the Vice President of VTB Bank (PJSC), Alexander Olkhovsky. 

The “Investor of the Year” award was founded by the St. Petersburg City Government in 2015, and the first honorary plaques were given to companies implementing projects of the greatest importance to the development of St. Petersburg in 2010–2014. Vying for awards in six nominating categories were over 30 competitors, representing various sectors of the local economy. 

According to the Investment Director at VTB Development JSC, Alexander Parushkov, unlike high-yield residential development projects, site development for industrial use at Maryino opens other avenues for economic growth. “Enterprise accommodation at industrial parks represents the most promising direction for industrial development in Russia. Specially-organized zones attract residents with their engineering and transport infrastructure, centralized facility management, and possibility of synergy with other companies. That said, the consolidation of production at certain locales provides economic growth for the region and an additional influx of investments,” says the expert. 

Maryino Industrial Park has been actively growing since 2011, when phase-one site development began. Since that time: engineering and infrastructure development has been completely prepared across a territory spanning over 60 ha, park residency has been taken up by several Russian and international enterprises in various industrial sectors, and an administrative building has been erected for the management company. Thus, Maryino became St. Petersburg’s only greenfield industrial park. It occupies 130 ha in the city’s Petrodvortsovy District and is geared towards the accommodation of modern production enterprises and logistics complexes. 

“We’re creating conditions for the accommodation of production facilities, which will in turn create new jobs in Petrodvortsovy District. This provides an opportunity to employ the locals, allows them to avoid making daily trips to the downtown core or other districts of St. Petersburg, and eases the load on the city’s transport system. Today, Maryino supports more than 150 jobs, and with the launch of new production sites – this indicator will climb dramatically,” says Project Director Vladimir Vishnevsky. 

We should note that this is not the project’s first award. In 2014, the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence was bestowed on Maryino as the best development project on the Russian real estate market in the nominating category “Industrial Real Estate,” and was also among the winners in a competition sponsored by the RF Ministry of Industry and Trade for RF industrial projects. Another high-profile by VTB Development – the Nevskaya Ratusha public-administration business quarter – is also the holder of several prestigious prizes: the CRE Awards St.Petersburg 2014 in the nominating category “Multifunctional Complex,” the “golden” certificate from the national eco-standard GREEN ZOOM and an RMDG certificate witnessing the conferring of Class-A status to a commissioned business center. What’s more, in 2014, at the presentation ceremony for CRE Saint Petersburg and the Federal Awards, VTB Development JSC was named “Developer of the Year.”


Maryino Industrial Park: 2015 results

The team at Maryino Industrial Park has tallied the results for 2015. Over a cup of coffee on 22 December, the project’s top-management greeted residents on the approaching holiday and shared the milestone events over the outgoing year. 

In 2015, the first manufacturing complex was launched into production at Maryino Industrial Park. On a site spanning 2.6 ha, a plant began operating for Finland’s Teknos, which produces a wide range of architectural-construction, residential, rust-resistant and powder paints. The enterprise marks Teknos’ first greenfield project in Russia – investments in its construction and equipping totalled approximately EUR 17 mln, and the facility currently provides more than 100 jobs. 

Work is currently underway on completing stage-two site development at Maryino Industrial Park. The work includes the construction of utility networks and a road network, and the equipping of a third checkpoint at the entrance to the industrial park.
May 2015 saw the commissioning of a newly-constructed administrative building, currently used for the accommodation of Capital-Energo staff, the holding of presentations and hosting of business meetings. 

In September 2015, Maryino Industrial Park became a resident of the Import Substitution Center: the project was showcased at the St. Peterburg stand as a key site for the localization of production within city limits. 

Maryino actively supports international and interindustry relations. Over the course of 2015, the industrial park was visited by foreign delegations from Germany, Turkey and the Philippines. 

In August 2015, Maryino hosted a meeting among enterprises in the automotive complex of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region. The event, organized in conjunction with the National Association of Autopart Manufacturers (NAAM), was held at the initiative of Maryino Industrial Park with the participation of the St. Petersburg Committee for Industrial Policy and Innovation. Within the scope of the meeting, entrepreneurs from Russia, Taiwan, Germany, Poland and other countries discussed prospects for the localization of automotive-cluster facilities and autopart-supply enterprises in St. Petersburg. 

For Maryino Industrial Park, 2015 was marked by a number of agreements expanding the range of services on offer for residents. In May, a cooperation agreement was signed with A-Plus Development for the purposes of arranging for the possibility of facility construction according to the build-to-suit arrangement, i.e. reflecting the individual needs and technological-process specifics of each manufacturer. The high level of site development and approved urban-planning documentation make it possible to complete facility design and construction within a span of just 18 months.

In the fall, a cooperation agreement was concluded with St. Peterburg Technopark OJSC. Within its scope, the companies will implement joint projects for the support of entrepreneurship and the development of innovational and industrial infrastructure in St. Petersburg. 


Maryino Industrial Park and St. Petersburg Technopark: innovation and partnership in the interests of the region

Maryino Industrial Park and St Petersburg Technopark have signed a cooperation agreement. Within its scope, the companies intend to implement joint projects for the support of entrepreneurship and development of innovational and industrial infrastructure in St. Petersburg, as well as to pursue productive interaction with the concerned departments of the municipal administration. 

The Project Director for Maryino Industrial Park, Vladimir Vishnevsky, believes that this kind of cooperation will have a positive effect on the city’s investment attractiveness and improving the entrepreneurial environment as a whole, since attracting funds into the regional economy requires the alignment of business and government objectives. “Partnership assumes maximum openness and the consolidation of efforts, the offering by the municipal administration to the business community and investors of projects and initiatives that are not just relevant for a single company, but are also capable of becoming the grounding strategy for the development of St. Petersburg,” says Vladimir Vishnevsky. 

“Cluster development excludes competition – it intensifies and augments the advantages of each company within the alliance. In the current conditions, we have to search for growth points inside the country and act as a common front,” notes Andrey Sokolov, General Director of St. Petersburg Technopark. 

As you may recall, Maryino Industrial Park is being developed in the Petrodvortsovy District of St. Petersburg. It’s an organized industrial zone, fully developed for the accommodation of modern manufacturing enterprises. St. Petersburg Technopark was founded in 2008 for the support of the city’s high-tech companies. The Technopark’s first project was the Ingria Business Incubator, which is one of the largest such business incubators in Russia today. The Technopark has since entered new levels of the regional innovation ecosystem, launching the Center for Cluster Development and Prototyping Center.


Maryino’s potential revealed for Finnish industrialists

On 1 October, at the Helsinki office of the Finno-Russian Chamber of Commerce, business representatives of the two countries discussed prospects for import substitution in Russia. 
Evgenia Butorina, Chief Analyst of the Investment Department at VTB Development, told her Finnish and Russian colleagues about Maryino Industrial Park’s potential for residents in the context of the localization of foreign enterprises in Russia. Evgenia Butorina was speaking at the event with an analysis of today’s import-substitution situation in the area of state procurements, and chatted with representatives of potential members of the Finno-Russian Chamber of Commerce. Evgenia noted that for Finnish businesspeople, the primary interest is generated by existing measures of state support for investors and industrial enterprises in Russia and St. Petersburg. The successful experience of Finland’s TEKNOS, which was the first to launch production in the amount of over EUR 17 mln at Maryino Industrial Park in July 2015, confirms the interest of Finnish business in localizing in St. Petersburg. 
According to the chief analyst, potential investors conduct regular monitoring of recent developments in Russian industrial legislation and are interested in getting up-to-date information from Russian business representatives. The joint events held by the Finno-Russian Chamber of Commerce are intended to improve the commercial and production cooperation of its participants. Maryino Industrial Park is a member of the Finno-Russian Chamber of Commerce. 
As you may recall, the most comfortable conditions for production localization have already been created at Maryino Industrial Park. Engineering and transport infrastructure has been fully developed, title to land plots has been formalized, and urban-planning documentation has been approved.


Maryino Industrial Park welcomes a business mission from Finland

On 30 September, Maryino Industrial Park was visited by a business-mission delegation from Sebu, Finland.

Russia’s largest manufacturing plant for Teknos paints launched at Maryino Industrial Park

The new production site sits on a land plots measuring 2.6 ha, which the company acquired back in 2012. The new enterprise’s specialization: the production of industrial rust-resistant paints and coatings used in the petrochemical industries, the construction of infrastructure facilities, and the painting of commercial vehicles and special equipment. 

The new plant is also expected to produce materials for the timber-processing industry. 

By year-end 2015, the Teknos site at Maryino will be the home to both operating enterprises – Teknos Deko LLC and Teknos-Okhtek – currently located in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region. 

At stage one, the production capacity of the new plant will amount to 10 mln liters of liquid paint and 2,000 tons of powdered paint per annum. Teknos has invested over EUR 17 mln in the construction and equipping of its Maryino plant. The enterprise represents Teknos’ first greenfield project in Russia. The plant is expected to become the largest Russian-based plant of a company that owns its own production facilities in seven countries of the world. 

“According to our plans, by 2018, 100% of the industrial paint under the Teknos brand intended for Russian consumers will be produced in St. Peterburg. Imports will only consist of general-construction and household-use products,” notes the company’s General Director, Anton Chepulis. Within the next few months, the new plant is also expected to launch an R&D laboratory, tasked with adapting current formulations to the raw materials of Russian production. 

Teknos was the first resident at Maryino Industrial Park to go into production. In October, another resident of Maryino Industrial Park – a subsidiary of the French Plastic Omnium holding – is scheduled to launch phase-one of its plant for the manufacture of plastic fuel systems.


Maryino Industrial Park expands its range of services

On 26 May 2015, Maryino Industrial Park hosted the signing of a long-term cooperation agreement between the park’s management company, Capital-Energo LLC, and the development company A-Plus Development. 

Pursuant to the signed document, Maryino Industrial Park and A-Plus Development confirmed their intention to cooperate for the purposes of improving the park’s competitiveness and investment attractiveness, as well as in terms of offering high-quality professional services to the park’s current and potential residents. 

The primary aim of the agreement lies in achieving Maryino Industrial Park’s capacity to construct production facilities according to the build-to-suit principle, i.e. reflecting the individual needs and technological-process specifics of each particular resident. 

“Or main task consists of helping Maryino residents to conduct their business with maximum efficiency in our country and our region. The build-to-suit deal removes material risks from the industrial park’s residents – particularly those who lack local experience in design and construction – and makes it possible to concentrate their financial and human resources on their core business. This is precisely why we settled our choice of partner on A-Plus Development – they have the most extensive build-to-suit construction experience in the region, notes Vladimir Vishnevsky, Managing Director of VTB Capital Asset Management CJSC, and Project Director for Maryino Industrial Park. 

In providing this service, design and construction is undertaken according to the customer’s technical specifications, thereby allowing a manufacturing enterprise to alleviate itself of the developer-phase risks and wind up with a facility that fully conforms to all applicable requirements in terms of technical characteristics, planning solutions and engineering loads. “I’m confident that this partnership has every chance of success – Maryino has all of the essential utilities and a prime location, while our company boasts a wealth of area-specific experience – in 2014 alone, we concluded six contracts for the construction of industrial facilities spanning a total area of more than 135,000 m2 and finished the construction of a logistics complex at Shushary – all build-to-suit. This format is ideal for companies that want to be able to use a facility that fully conforms to their technological processes,” says Pyotr Gavyrin, General Director of A-Plus Development. 

We should note that the build-to-suit service will be offered as a supplement to the standard offer for the acquisition into ownership of a land plot with utilities at Maryino Industrial Park. The next steps towards implementation of the agreement’s provisions will entail the formation of a working group for the discussion of joint projects.
