Russian-slovak manufacturing of medical equipment was opened in the Moscow SEZ

The new enterprise for production of the medical equipment was opened on July 1 at the site of SEZ Technopolis Moscow. The event was held in the framework of the working visit of the Slovak and Russian officials, with the participation of the President of the National Council of Slovakia, Andrej Danko and the Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, member of the Committee on health, Alexander Petrov.

Russian-Slovak company Chirana+, localized in the capital, will produce anesthetic devices and ventilators.

"There are 130 high-tech companies work in the SEZ, 59 of them have the status of a SEZ resident, and about 15% are with foreign participation. SEZ provides more than 5.5 thousand jobs in Moscow, and this figure will only grow. In particular, now the SEZ is filled by 77%, by the end of 2019 we expect 100% filling”, - said Vladimir Efimov, the Deputy mayor of Moscow for economic policy and property and land relations. 

"Today Moscow provides the most comfortable conditions for the localization of foreign production. Thanks to the Government support measures, foreign investors can count on high-quality engineering and production infrastructure, logistics, special tax regime and much more. Localization of Russian-Slovak production in the city will not only bring more than 174 million rubles of investment, but will also create more than 30 new jobs for citizens", - said Alexander Prokhorov, the head of the Department of investment and industrial policy of Moscow.

According to Vasily Shimko, CEO of Chirana+, the production of anesthesia and respiratory equipment and ventilators in Russia will allow to introduce modern European technologies and quality standards, reduce the delivery time of equipment and logistics costs, as well as reduce the cost of production, while maintaining high quality products. 

The equipment will be supplied to medical institutions in Russia, and negotiations are underway with potential partners for export to the Middle East.
