Modern machinery will be used at production. 200 highly-qualified staff will work at the site. The majority of key technological operations is going to be automated that will reduce cost of manufacturing. In addition all TVs to be produced will go through rigorous quality control.

Novgorodskaya SEZ has a unique location between Moscow and Saint-Petersburg that, in combination with the Alabuga’s experience in investment attraction and management, makes Novgorodskaya SEZ more appealing for investment and the state.
Alabuga uses the best world practices, which contribute to the active and efficient growth of the site, creating a favorable investment climate for the Russian industrial sector development.
