News agencies about the opening of “CSP BZS”
The first to react were these three news agencies: BelTA, Prime-TASS, Mogilevnews.by. The news was published online before the guests took their seats at the banquet tables.
In his interview to BelTA the Minister of Architecture and Construction of the Republic of Belarus Anatoly Cherny emphasized the significance of the plant for the construction industry and the country as a whole: “It is a really momentous event for the construction industry of the region and of Belarus… Now that we have our own cement-bonded particle boards, we will be able to considerably reduce the costs of residential building erection, boost the construction and increase the export of building materials”.

Mogilev news agency Mogilevnews.by, in its turn, reported of the residential buildings which had been built in the regional center using VST technology:
“VST technology is very popular in Europe today, particularly for its quality and cost effectiveness. Several buildings, including residential buildings, have been erected using this technology in Mogilev as well – two rental houses on Altayskaya street and multistory apartment buildings in Kazimirovka residential area. Several buildings have been built using the same technology in Brest and Bobruisk. But the cement-bonded particle boards for these buildings were imported from abroad, mainly from Russia”.

“CSP BZS” plant was built in the premises of the former meat packing plant. The plant with its outdated equipment could not beat the competition and had to be closed. The plant facilities had been abandoned for several years before the investors came who were willing to restructure it. Eventually the office and manufacturing facilities were reconstructed and renovated, and the imported equipment was installed” — Mogilevnews
News portals did not send their reporters, however they delivered an informed story of the opening of “CSP BZS”
The second in their prompt response to the event were 8 news portals (21.by, doingbusiness.by, infobaza.by and others), the most popular of which is TUT.BY. The portal did not send its correspondent, however it provided an informed story of the plant to its readers. And it has quite a few readers – about 1 mln. unique visitors a day. I would like to site a passage from the publication in BelTA news line:
“CSP BZS” JLLC was established for this investment project by JSV “Belzarubezhstroy” (85% investment) and VST Building Technologies AG (15% investment) – Prime-TASS
“The investment project was financed by own funds and foreign investments. There will be 200 jobs when the plant reaches its full production capacity (60,000 cub. m per year). According to the perspective development plan, the production capacity is to be increased to 100,000 cub. m per year. CBPB plant construction is the first step of Belarusian-Austrian integrated program; the second step will be construction of VST permanent shuttering manufacturing facility” - BelTA.
Timber for the production of CBPB will be taken from the Belarusian forestry, cement will be supplied by Krichev cement plant, aluminum sulphate and water glass will be supplied by the Belarusian manufacturers. – Prime-TASS
The product will be produced for the domestic market (75%) and for export (25%). The first batches of products have been sent to Brest and to Austria – Prime-TASS
Printed media: “Fall in line!”, “Under the flag of the Republic of Belarus” and “New plant in Krichev expands the horizons of Belarusian construction sector”
