Arkalyk Poultry Plant Aims to be Among Leaders07 November 2011
KAZAKHSTAN - The Arkalyk poultry plant is going to become the largest in the country with a projected production output of 300 million eggs per year.
Before the end of 2011, it will reach its intended capacity. Now, this major investment project in the Torgai region has become a powerful source of tax payments.
According to Caspio Net, the plant’s cost of three and a half billion tenge is almost used up completely and the result is obvious. The plant has 450,000 birds with 300,000 of them being hens. Every day, the company produces up to 280 thousand eggs. Now, it is expecting more chicks to be delivered to the facility.
Aleksei Kan, Poultry Plant Director said: "We are now also building two more chicken runs. They will be equipped with brand new German equipment, which will help us reach our project capacity. Now, we are completely satisfying the demand in the city and our products are in demand around Kazakhstan."
Before the end of this year, the company is set to reach its design capacity of 700 thousand heads and 300 million eggs a year. In 2012, the population of birds will increase to one million with two hundred more jobs to be provided by the company.
Temirzhan Tuleubayev, Mayor of Arkalyk said: "Having more jobs and a new production plant will increase the amount of taxes paid to the budget. This year, we are to reach over 100 million tenge compared to last year."
Thanks to this production plant, the region has implemented another social project as a nursery school was renovated in the neighbouring village.
