Spanish Manufacturer to Relocate from Russia to Kazakhstan

Following the recent closure of its production facilities in Russia, where it was the country’s largest manufacturer of sanitary ware, Spanish company Roca is to open a plant in Kazakhstan.

The announcement was made following a meeting on 10 April between company representatives and Asel Suankulova, Deputy Director of the Department for Attracting Investments and Marketing of JSC National Company Kazakh Invest.

Roca, which annually sells 500 units of products throughout Central Asia, has already established an office in Almaty and plans to open a new logistics centre to export its products to nearby countries.

The Spanish company has been assured of Kazakhstan’s support through investment initiatives including access to local raw materials, such as kaolin and quartz to produce its ceramic wares.
