Wielsbeke, Belgium -- Beaulieu Flooring Solutions (BFS) is set to increase production capacity for vinyl rolls at its JUTEKS Russian plant. The addition of a second production line, scheduled to come on stream in second quarter 2020, will also create new job openings.

The JUTEKS Russian plant is one of the most modern manufacturing facilities for vinyl rolls in the world, with a current production capacity of over 30 million square meters per year and an in-house laboratory. From its location in Kameshkovo, Vladimir region, a wide network of distributors serves customers in the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other CIS countries, as well as in Turkey and the Middle East.

Since acquiring the JUTEKS Russian plant in 2012, BFS has invested in supporting manufacturing capabilities with a local design studio for the creation of regionally-tailored designs, the acquisition of a local distributor, and an extensive warehouse complex for raw materials and finished products. New warehouses were opened in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and in Astana, Kazakhstan, in 2018.

“Vinyl Flooring continues to be one of the top choices for floor covering in our countries,” said Jure Zupin, managing director, JUTEKS Russia.

James Neuling, vice president, BFS, added, “The decision to invest in more capacity at the JUTEKS Russian plant is a great way to mark its 10-year anniversary and also our confidence for the future. Beaulieu Flooring Solutions’ expansion and investment push is at full speed. In 2018, we increased our capabilities with two new flooring companies – Beaulieu Canada and Beaulieu Australia – and we’re very enthusiastic about announcements on the horizon for 2019.”
