11 january 2018
In the run-up to the New Year, on December 28, 2017 the festive event took place at the Palace of Arts in Bobruisk, which was devoted to the New Year celebration and 45-th Anniversary of Belshina JSC.
Forty-five years ago, on the last day of the year, the first stage of the Industrial OTR Tire Plant was put into operation. That event became the birthday of the Society. Alexei Yakovlev, Director General of Belshina JSC noted in his speech:
“Those were 45 years of labour and achievements, 45 years of moving forward. It was the whole epoch, epoch of the people who devoted their lives to creation of a glorious name “Belshina”.
One of the most distinguished events of 2017 was the accomplishment of implementation and operational commissioning of the greatest investment project for the giant OTR production, which resulted in output of the first trial tire with 63 inch rim seat diameter. It was the first tire in the history of the Republic of Belarus and even the countries of the former Soviet Union, designed for the biggest mining dumper in the world.
We could reach a significant improvement in quality of our all-steel tires produced at the PC & TBR Tire Plant. This year we designed and launched production of tires with 17 and 18 inch rim seat diameter for the first-ever Belarusian passenger car. We have started preparatory works to implement a new investment project at the Industrial OTR Tire Plant and supplies of new equipment had already started.
Thanking to your valorous labour and management efforts we could reach a significant growth of production volumes. We attained increase of exports, entered into new market outlets. Our plans for 2018 are extensive. Certainly, we shall continue our technical modernization, quality improvement and development of new markets”.
During the forthcoming concert program the staff members of Belshina enjoyed the songs of Inna Afanasyeva, Alexei Hlestov, Marina Devyatova and other Belarusian entertainment stars.
