Advantages of doing business in Moscow
The company notes that technoparks are an important incentive to innovation. Technoparks offer their residents tax reliefs, access to a unified infrastructure and special attention by the city to their problems. One technopark may accommodate residents working in different economic sectors: IT, medicine, energy. In addition, technoparks are an effective platform for an open dialogue between companies manufacturing innovative products and the city government. Among other advantages, the company’s top management noted specialised website: unified information sources increase potential customers’ company awareness.
All the equipment used in manufacturing HTS is unique and high tech. Unlike its competitors, the company develops and manufactures 80% of its technical equipment. It can rapidly and independently expand its production facilities. Since the demand for HTS products is growing by the year, the company intends to expand production. Before the end of 2017, the company plans to have the full HTS tape manufacturing cycle at Slava technopark.
