Kemira: Tikkurila opens a logistics and customer service center in Mytishchi near Moscow

22-04-2009: Tikkurila, which is responsible for Kemira's paints and coatings business, is opening a new logistics and customer service center in Mytishchi near Moscow. The resulting more efficient supply chain will give a competitive edge to Tikkurila as soon as the market picks up, according to the company.

The construction work of this approximately EUR 20 million investment was started in August 2007 and was completed in 2009. Operations came on-stream in January of this year. The building volume is 86,600 m3, and the floor area totals 9,900 m2, of which 5,400 m2 is taken up by warehouse operations and 4,500 m2 by office premises. The storage capacity of the warehouse is 7,500 pallet places or 3.0 million liters of paint.

All Tikkurila's activities in the Moscow area, including sales, marketing and warehousing, have already moved into the premises. The center also houses facilities for customer training, which is an integral part of Tikkurila's marketing.

Tikkurila has five paint factories in Russia. Products from these factories are sold under the brands of Teks, Finncolor, Gamma and Ohtek. The company has also been exporting paints and coatings to Russia for decades under the Tikkurila and Tikkurila Coatings brand names. The new logistics and customer service center aims at considerably improving Tikkurila's service level in the Moscow area.
