Krichev and Bobruisk cities in Mogilev Oblast region of Belarus will get two new garment manufacturing factories during the first quarter of 2018. These two new units will be set up by Belarusian branch – Sharm Premyer of Russia-based knitted-goods manufacturer Sharm. The company will use the unused premises of rubber goods factory of the Belarusian tire maker Belshina for its factory in Krichev which will incorporate state-of-the-art equipment. Seamers are also being prepared and trained.
The second unit in Bobruisk may be housed in a rented building. These two manufacturing units is expected to create about 600 jobs and produce around 5,00,000 ready-made garments on a monthly basis, collectively. Goods manufactured here are to be exported to Russia from where it will be distributed through proprietary outlets.
Tatiana Andrushchishina, Director of Sharm Premyer says, favourable business terms, skilled workforce, good logistics and proximity to the Russian border made Mogilev Oblast as the obvious choice to set up these factories for the company.”
These two garment factories will manufacture products such as T-shirts, trousers, skirts, shorts, sweaters, breeches, polo shirts and tank tops to cater to the new millennials. Sharm Premyer has been manufacturing in Belarus since 2006 where their three manufacturing units produce around 2,50,000 garments every month.
