Description

Description: 

The Ukrainian company was established on the basis of a former building materials factory in the city of Slavuta, Khmelnitsk region, Western Ukraine. The main activity is the production of granular calcium ameliorates used for acidification of soil and as a calcium fertilizer in agriculture.
The Company’s production premises are located on 2 hectares of industrial land and also has a reserve of another 7.3 hectares of land under lease contract until 2024 with the option of purchasing it from state authorities or further lease period prolongation.
Also in September 2019 the construction of additional warehouse for finished goods with a total area of 600 sq.m was launched. As of 01.10.2019 there are 22 employees in the company. The main manufactured product is a floured granular chalk.
The first batch was produced and sold in March 2017. For the period 2017-2019 annual production output was increased from 1’500 tones up to 6’000 tones.
Granular calcium ameliorates are in high demand due to the mass acidification of soils in Ukraine. The company carries out a set of measures to ensure production with its own raw materials, namely, extraction and processing of raw materials.
One of the main problems of plowed land in Ukraine and not only (most European countries - Belarus, Poland, Denmark, England, UK, Germany) is a decrease in fertility caused by acid degradation or soil decalcification, resulting in a significant deterioration in physicochemical soil properties, reduction of available forms of biogenic and alkaline-earth elements for plants. The company is looking for partners under joint-venture agreements.
