Orisol First Training Centre in Russia will Open on the Basis of "Obuv Rossii" Footwear Factory
"Obuv Rossii" Group of Companies and one of the world's leading producers of automated sewing systems – Orisol Company – have agreed to open the first and the only training centre of Orisol in Russia. The centre will be located on the territory of "Obuv Rossii" factory in the city of Berdsk of Novosibirsk Region. It is planned to complete the equipment of the centre by October 2016. Specialists of footwear companies will be trained in the centre to work with automated sewing systems. Investments of "Obuv Rossii" in the launching and equipping of the centre will be 20 million rubles.
Orisol is an Israel company, one of the leaders of the world market producing sewing complexes along with Pfaff of Germany. Its production is based in Israel and on Taiwan. Orisol produces machines of new type that are equipped with software and make the footwear sewing process fully automatic. The production rate of Orisol systems is 5-6 times higher than that of usual sewing machines. They make it possible to produce complex footwear models with a large number of details of different texture materials, as well as to achieve high quality of the final product.
The training centre will have the following equipment: three automated sewing complexes by Orisol (with sewing fields of different sizes), a milling machine with computer control for the production of pallets, a set of software and additional instruments. This will allow the students of the centre to master modern production technologies and further introduce them at their enterprises.
"Orisol hasn't had its own training centre in Russia. Our partners and clients who purchased equipment had to travel to foreign factories and to our production on Taiwan to acquire key skills of work with automated systems. Now we'll have a full-value site in Russia where one can not only see the operation of equipment but also independently under the supervision of "Obuv Rossii" specialists produce and test footwear samples", says Abe Steinbach, vice-president of Orisol.
Regular training will take place at least 4 times a year, plus training on request. A training program is now developed that will be presented to potential clients in September 2016. "Obuv Rossii" will form a team of technologists-teachers who will teach specialists of footwear enterprises to work with new machines.
"We appreciate the fact that Orisol has chosen our company as a partner to open a training centre in Russia", says Anton Titov, Director of "Obuv Rossii" GC. "The Russian footwear production has now large potential, since there is a huge domestic market in the country, and the ruble devaluation has given a price advantage to local enterprises. Now many factories in Russia start to modernize their production and start to use new technologies, which make it possible to highly increase the production rate, to produce more complex assortment, and to increase the quality of the final product".
"Obuv Rossii" factory that is located in Novosibirsk Region is equipped with modern equipment, including Orisol sewing systems. A two-year program of modernization of the cutting-and-sewing shop of the company started in April, the amount of investments will be 300 million rubles. The first stage was the purchase of two sets of new automated sewing complexes by Orisol and an embroidery machine that were delivered to the enterprise in early June. This will allow the company to double the production capacity of the sewing line in 2016-2017, up to 200 thousand pairs of footwear per year.
