The project will be carried out within the free economic zone. The groundbreaking ceremony of the future factory ‘Crimea Shoes’ was held on Wednesday.

Construction will be carried out at a site in the town of Yevpatoria in Crimea. The project consists of three phases; the first commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2016.

“It is planned that in the factory unique equipment will be installed, advanced production lines will be introduced, and resource-saving technologies will be implemented.
