ALABUGA WINS A SILVER
On March 2nd, 2014 the most sporty representatives of construction companies from Kazan, Almetyevsk, Yelabuga, Nizhny Novgorod and Ulyanovsk took part in a first all-Russian mini-football tournament held in an indoor arena of the "Central stadium" in Kazan.
According to tournament rules, 20 teams were divided into groups of five. "Alabuga" suffered a loss at the beginning that, however, did not break its fighting spirit. The team went to playoffs where “Alabuga” met an Almetyevsk Pipe Plant.
A normal-playing time wasn’t enough to figure out the strongest. The participants had to face a "football roulette" followed by a series of penalties. “Alabuga” scored 3-2 and won.
The semi-final game with a Tatarstan team "StroyPodryad" turned out to be rather emotional. Both teams played aggressive, but a normal-playing time didn’t define the winner. To the SEZ "Alabuga" fans’ joy, after a series of six-meter kicks the team was shortlisted.
In this match for the title of "KazanStroy 2014" cup holder the Special economic zone counted experienced players of BASE. As noted by all the spectators during the game there were many scoring chances throughout the game, but fortune favored the competitors: 2-0. A second place and a silver medal among twenty teams – is a good result showed by “Alabuga" team.
The emotional intensity of the game was awesome, I want to thank once again all the hosts and the participants, it was great!

SEZ Alabuga 2013
SEZ "Alabuga" 2013: Global brands, ready industrial facilities, "Tri Medvedya" International school and membership in international associations
The Special economic zone "Alabuga" steps into a qualitatively new level of infrastructural development thanks to the projects recently launched here in 2013.
Construction of industrial parks "A Plus Park Alabuga" and "Synergy", where investors may rent out modern ready production modules, significantly improved the attractiveness of the site for a pool of companies the financial models of which do not presuppose the construction of their own facilities. The SEZ "Alabuga" has made its first step into the development of social infrastructure – the managing company has started the construction of rental housing and an international school "Tri Medvedya."
Multinational companies, namely 3M and Armstrong have started construction on their sites. Globally known companies-leaders in their respective market segments are expanding their Russian branches by opening new productions. As mentioned by Tim Koenig, CEO "3M Russia", only production facilities in the country will make the company successful in the Russian market.
The upward trend in investment and new production facilities by the residents indicates an increase in trust in Russian special economic zones in general and, particularly, in the SEZ "Alabuga". For example, in 2013 "Ford Sollers" began an ambitious project – construction of an engine plant, claiming $ 200 million of additional investments. Holding company "Alabuga Fiber" run by Leonid Melamed (final construction phase of the factory "Alabuga - fiber" for the production of carbon fiber), has invested almost 1.5 billion rubles into two new projects: a factory for the production of fiberglass pipes "Amitek" and production of composite materials "NTSK - Alabuga".
Thus, in 2013 “Alabuga” has approved 8 new resident companies, including "Huhtamaki Foodservice Alabuga", "Vertical- Alabuga", "Gabriel-Chemie Alabuga", "Hygiene Technologies", "KamGeoTeks" "Engineering Center "Interskol", "NTSK - Alabuga", "Amitek" and "KKT - Syntez." These companies will invest into their projects in the SEZ "Alabuga" about four and a half billion rubles. Current residents "Ford Sollers Yelabuga", "Alabuga Motors" and "Hayat Kimya" also made amendments in the existing Agreements and increased their investment volumes. Therefore, these companies will invest nine and a half billion rubles. Thus, in 2013 "Alabuga" current companies attracted almost 14 billion rubles, totally contracted investments - 105 billion rubles. In 2013 residents have created 1274 jobs, currently there are 3,800 people employed.
In the past year "Alabuga" became a part of two professional associations: American Chamber of Commerce and Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce, which will help the company to build confidence and establish investment cooperation with American and Italian business circles.
Establishing a partnership with leading Russian media holding "Vedomosti" and "RBC" is invaluable, as informing large and medium business about the opportunities for locating production in the SEZ "Alabuga" is of a great importance. From now on anyone may check the news about the managing company, factory launch ceremonies and emergence of new residents from newspapers, magazines and television screens, which once again confirms the information transparency of the Special economic zone.
Employees are definitely the main capital of any company. The SEZ "Alabuga" is aware of the importance of investment in human resources. This year over hundred young people have been trained in various areas in the managing company of the SEZ "Alabuga". Top interns, who had courses in foreign universities and colleges, now are being employed and are working in the SEZ “Alabuga”. Starting from this year a resource center has opened its doors to residents. The center is aimed at assisting companies in finding, training and advanced training of specialists.
