Acron management met with the governor of the Perm region

In Perm, the regional governor Dmitry Makhonin met with the management of the Acron Group. The working meeting was attended by the company’s Vice President Vladimir Kantor, General Director Vladimir Kunitsky and General Director of Verkhnekamsk Potash Company (VPC, part of the Acron Group) Alexander Pupov.

During the meeting, the parties discussed the progress of the project for the development of the Talitsky section of the Verkhnekamsk potassium-magnesium salts deposit, socio-economic cooperation and issues of industrial cooperation with regional producers.

Dmitry Makhonin noted that the Perm region has been cooperating with the company for several years. The project to develop the Talitsky site is, first of all, important from the point of view of creating new jobs – after the start of production, about 2 thousand employees will be able to work here. In addition, the implementation of the SPIC will increase the export of mineral fertilizers and contribute to the development of industrial cooperation between the largest manufacturer and local enterprises.

Vladimir Kantor stated that this is the largest project in the history of Acron Group – the total investment volume will be $2.7 billion, of which $1.3 billion has already been invested. Construction of the mine and surface complex facilities is in full swing, with plans to begin production of potassium chloride in 2026. It’s important that Acron Group’s strategic project is being implemented taking into account the potential of the region’s industrial enterprises. Contracts worth 16.6 billion roubles (approximately $172 million) were concluded with companies in the Perm region.

Recall that in 2019, VPC, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Perm region, within the framework of SPIEF-2019, signed a special investment contract on the creation of industrial production “Development of the Talitsky site of the Verkhnekamsk potassium-magnesium salt deposit in the Perm region with a capacity of 2 million tons of potassium chloride per year.”
