There is also the largest manufacturer of aluminum rolled products in Naberezhnye Chelny, which can produce a profile according to the matrices of the enterprise. Thus, this allows Lunga PLC to use its own developments. Besides, the largest anodising plant in Russia is located in Naberezhnye Chelny (anodising is a protective decorative layer on the surface of metals — editor's note). The placement of production in the auto city helps to avoid logistics costs.
The company opened on June 1, 2022. During the first month of summer, more than 150 LED complexes were shipped to Kerch. About 36 million rubles have been invested, after joining PSEDA, it is planned to invest another 27 million by the end of this year.
