Kievguma is one of the largest manufacturers of rubber products in Ukraine. Despite more than 90 years of history, the company is constantly modernizing and looking for ways to improve working efficiency at all levels.

Kievguma has started working with the Center for Resource Efficient and Clean Production

That is why Kievguma has started cooperation with the Center for Resource Efficient and Clean Production. Specialists of the Center conducted a detailed inspection of production and recommended a number of technical solutions aimed at improving efficiency of energy usage, informs the Railway Supply referring to the manufacturer.

“In search of ways to improve our energy efficiency, we started working with the Center for Resource Efficient and Clean Production. Our main goal is to reduce the cost of production and the opportunity to offer the most competitive price while maintaining high quality of products. So if we cannot influence the cost of raw materials, we can optimize energy costs, and that is what we are doing now. To do this, we have attracted specialists in this field and we are actively working with them” – comments R&D Director Volodymyr Kripkyi – “In addition, employees of the Center, conducting an inspection of our company, noted that Kievguma is a production with high standards.”

Kievguma has already started implementing the provided recommendations. Additionally, the Center’s experts will conduct a series of practical courses for the company’s employees.
