RT-Khimkompozit Creates Aerospace Technology Cluster in Kaluga

RT-Khimkompozit holding has launched the process to create a cluster to manufacture parts and structures of polymer composites for aerospace industry in Kaluga Region.     For the first time the idea to establish the center of excellence was announced in October 2013 at a conference dedicated to the 25th anniversary of Buran shuttle flight.  

The core element of the new cluster will be Tekhnologia, Obninsk, a member of RT-Khimkompozit.  High R&D potential and well-developed infrastructure of the company make it the ideal candidate to host the hi-tech center of excellence.

RT-Khimkompozit top managers believe that the fact that Tekhnologia was selected as the anchor company of the cluster is a sufficient proof of the highest hi-tech competences of the holding company. .

At the kick-off meeting the initiative group has taken a decision that the new establishment legal form would be a non-for-profit partnership. The group is currently preparing required documents.
