Who We Are

LLC “SWISS KRONO”, a company member of Swiss Krono Group, was established in December 2000. At present, the company includes three production branches located in Lviv Region – Kamianka-Buska Town, in Ivano-Frankivsk Region – Broshniv-Osada Township and in Kharkiv Region – Solonytsivka Township.

The history of the company development started in 2000 in Kamianka-Buska Town. The existing chipboard production line was fully modernized here, “Dieffenbacher” two-platen press and the first line for chipboard lamination was installed. And already in February 2002, the first SWISS KRONO particle board was produced. In several months, the first “Siempelkamp” laminating line was put into operation, and three years later second laminating line was put into operation. For the worktops production a postforming line was installed at Kamianka-Buska plant in 2008. In January 2012 SWISS KRONO first and only in Ukraine started production of OSB/3.

In 2004, LLC “SWISS KRONO” acquired the plant in Broshniv-Osada. During 2004-2005, three more chipboard laminating lines were added to the existing line of chip board production. In 2006, the whole production line was modernized and today, the plant in Broshniv-Osada is the most powerful production facility of LLC “SWISS KRONO”. Also in this year a power generating unit for effective utilization of wood waste was constructed here. This modernization allowed significantly reduces gas consumption in chipboard production.

In 2006, the plant in Solonytsivka merged with LLC “SWISS KRONO”. Significant investments into production facilities of this plant allowed to put into operation one more chipboard production line – “Dieffenbacher” single-platen press, “Siempelkamp” laminating lines and VITS decorative paper impregnation line.

At present, LLC “SWISS KRONO” is the leading producer of chipboards and other products on the basis of chip board (melamine faced chipboards and worktops) in Ukraine, and also is only inside the country producer of OSB boards. The current production facilities of the company comprise over 700 thousands cubic meters per year, 100 thousandas cubic meters of which are OSB/3 boards. There are 6 board laminating units with the capacity of 40 million sq.m. per year. Apart from these, the company produces 1.5 million sq.m. worktops per year and impregnated decorative paper.

Almost 800 employees contribute to the company success.

Optimal location of plants allows the company to react to the internal market needs flexibly and to manufacture its products in the close proximity to the customer. Small distances from storages to the borders and availability of company’s own access gauges open broad prospects for export of finished products to the neighboring and far-abroad countries.
