Interim Governor of the Irkutsk Region Igor Kobzev visited the largest sawmill in the region, Ind Timber.


At the meeting, Igor Ivanovich discussed with the company's management the participation of the enterprise in waste disposal and forest protection, and also noted that the enterprises of the timber industry should be engaged in reforestation.


In this direction, Ind Timber cooperates with the Russian Forest Association, which is engaged not only in industry, but also in social projects.


Another social project was the launch of our own production of medical masks, which was also discussed with Igor Kobzev during his working visit.


«Back in April, there were not even 100 cases in the Irkutsk region, — says Alexei Zhelneyev, president of the Russian Forest Association. — Now the situation is more serious, so we decided to launch our own production of masks, thanks to which we will also create more than a hundred jobs. At the stage of testing and training personnel, we produce more than a million masks a month, and in the future we plan to increase their number at least twice».
