By the unanimous decision of the general meeting of members of the Association of enterprises of deep processing of grain "Soyuzkrakhmal", LLC "Khimprom" became a member of the Association. Over the past years, the company has been one of the largest enterprises producing specialized chemical products on the Russian market. Since 2015, Khimprom has been producing modified starches.
Khimprom LLC was founded in 2003. The main activity of the company is the production and sale of a wide range of chemical products for the oil and gas sector; The company strives to develop and expand its product line, as well as to improve product quality.
In 2015, Khimprom launched the production of modified starches for use in the oil and gas industry. Technological lines were purchased and installed on the basis of domestic extrusion equipment of Almaz LLC with a total production capacity of up to 250 tons per month.
In 2016, as part of the strategy for developing production and increasing the output of finished products, Khimprom entered into an agreement with Sintez LLC on cooperation in the production and sale of modified starch for the oil and gas industry. The production site is located in Berezniki, Perm Territory. The developed transport infrastructure and proximity to direct consumers allows us to meet the needs of customers in a short time with minimal logistical costs.
Since 2019, about 100 million rubles have been invested in the development of production. The bulk of the investment was aimed at increasing production capacity and automating the technological process for the production of modified starch, as well as expanding warehouse space for storing raw materials and finished products, which made it possible to increase production volumes to 600 tons per month. “Khimprom LLC plans to increase production capacity up to 2023 tons of finished products per month by the end of 1000,” - notes the general director of the company "Khimprom" Minibaev Vildan Vagizovich.
The company has implemented international quality management standards. Khimprom LLC is certified according to the ISO 9001-2015 quality management system. There are currently 30 employees in the modified starch production area.
According to General Director Minibaev V.V.: “Over 7 years, the company has gone from pilot production of starches to large-scale production of high-quality starch products.” Modified swelling starch "Reamil" developed for the needs of customers is used to reduce the filtration rate of drilling fluids of various salinity. "Reamil" is used in the process of drilling directional and horizontal wells, including in the intervals of opening productive layers.
Since 2022, Khimprom LLC has been developing a new direction in the field of chemical additives for the production of dry building mixes. The developed product WellFix MS is a chemically modified potato or corn starch for special purposes, used for the production of building and finishing materials. WellFix MS modified starch acts as a thickening additive in the production of various building mixtures: adhesives, plasters, fillers, decorative finishing mixtures. WellFix MS creates and maintains the structure of the mixture by adjusting the rheological properties of the mixture and maintaining its consistency. Facilitates comfortable work with the mixture, preventing it from sticking to the tool. Mortars made with WellFix MS modified starch are easy to apply on horizontal and vertical surfaces due to their high stability and slip resistance.
“Of the total volume of starch sold in 2022, 82% was supplied to the domestic market of the Russian Federation, and 18% to neighboring countries - to the Republic of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan”, - adds Minibaev V.V.
The increase in export volumes was facilitated by the decision to register in 2021 a subsidiary of Khimprom LLC in the Republic of Kazakhstan - Khimprom KZ Company LLP. The Kazakhstan subsidiary Khimprom LLC delivers to the market of Central Asia and the Middle East both its own products and products manufactured by partner enterprises.
