On the agenda - professional training
President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov held a meeting on human resources issues with resident companies of the Special economic zone "Alabuga". Now factories of the SEZ employ over 4,500 people. It is expected that by 2020 the SEZ plants will create about 16,000 jobs. "The demand for manual workers is ever growing, particularly for specialists. Therefore we have to predict in advance the necessary amount of qualified staff, what colleges should be involved for future specialists’ training", - said Rustam Minnikhanov.
Starting from January of the current year to solve personnel issues of the resident companies we launched a human resources center project of the SEZ "Alabuga". Now the human resources center supports and provides training in 15 most demanded specialties. In 2014 for such purposes we involved more than 20 educational institutions.

In 2015 almost 2,100 people will also have various training courses primarily long-term training in secondary vocational education institutions.
Discussion of personnel training issues for future manual workers’ jobs involving high-tech machines and automated lines continued at "Interskol" plant producing a wide range of power tools. High degree of automation and robotics in the long term will meet up to 40% of the existing demand in Russia for the most popular groups of high-quality professional power tools, particularly drills, rotary hammers, angle grinders and rechargeable appliances.

ROCKWOOL to reconstruct facades
Sberbank building at Peterburgskaya St., 28 in Kazan has acquired a new look after the recently completed renovation of the facade. The authors of the project had a creative approach to the choice of materials to create a truly original style of the building. It seems to be composed of two parts: the first floor facade is made of granite, and second and third ones are faced with ecological and fireproof ROCKPANEL panels made of rock wool introduced by ROCKWOOL company.
ROCKPANEL is a unique material that allows to experiment with forms, colors, facade curvings, offering a wide choice of decorative panels for every taste. In Sberbank building reconstruction project ROCKPANEL plates were used not only in facades, but also as a window framing and roofing boarding. Due to material’s moisture resistant qualities and its weatherability there was no need to apply peak flashing. Another property of the panels – stone’s strength and durability that makes ROCKPANEL an optimal solution for facades at any level of complexity.
The reconstruction of Sberbank continues a series of landmark projects in the Republic of Tatarstan using ROCKPANEL. Among them - insulation and facade facing of the first international school in the Volga region - Alabuga International School and Kazan Technopark "Navigator Campus."
