PJSC “Azot” (Cherkasy) will be the first one in Ukraine to offer mineral fertiliziers in sling bags to farmers
PJSC “Azot” (Cherkasy) has begun the construction of a line for packing ammonium nitrate in sling bags. The total value of this investment project is UAH3.7 million.
It is expected that the new line will be put into operation in late March – early April. The line will be as automated as possible and at the first stages will allow packing up to 300 tons of products per day. The design and commissioning of the line is part of the new production and marketing strategy of the company.
Sling bag is a voluminous soft package which you can use to quickly transport large consignments of products and protect the mineral fertilizers produced from the effects of atmospheric factors. Sling bag literally translates as a “bag for bags”. The large package is made of laminated polypropylene, which holds 21 bags (50 kg each) and is tightly closed.
The premises for the new line are being built from scratch on the territory of the M-9 ammonium nitrate production facility. PJSC “Azot” (Cherkasy) will become the first Ukrainian producer of mineral fertilizers to offer consumers this type of packaging.
PJSC “Azot” (Cherkasy) is a member of Ostchem, the largest chemical holding in Ukraine, that brings together companies producing nitrogen ferilizers: PJSC «Azot» (Cherkasy), PJSC «Rivneazot» (Rivne), PrJSC «Severodonetsk Azot Association» (Severodonetsk). The Ostchem distribution is represented by Ostchem Retail and “UkrAgro NPK”, a network of distribution warehouses.
