Ukrgiprobum developed a feasibility study for the construction of Kyiv Cardboard Factory, including the installation of two K-19 cardboard machines, each of which was capable of producing 70,000 tons of cardboard per year, and additional production of 29,000 tons per year of printed cardboard boxes.
The technical plan for Kyiv Cardboard Factory is developed as a part of Tripilskiy Industrial Site, and funds are provided for land reclamation.
Land reclamation is fulfilled for the construction of the factory. This construction is mandated to the State Supply Committee of the USSR. Production volumes are increased up to 200-220 thousand tons of cardboard per year, and the production of tissue is planned. A joint management was created for the construction of the cardboard and paper mills.
The plant “Kievpromstroy” was chosen to be the general contractor for construction, and construction of the plant and residential areas begins. On February 1, the first pile was driven into the foundation at the main building site. In November began construction of the printing production plant.
The company was renamed into Kyiv Cardboard and Paper Mill. Construction of Kyiv Cardboard and Paper Mill in Obukhiv (40 km from Kiev) was a part of a larger program of the USSR State Supply on the use of raw materials.
