UZPM Founder Rustam Gilfanov Forms the Winter Technologies Group

MOSCOW, May 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ —

Rustam Gilfanov, the founder of the Ural Plant of Deicing Materials (UZPM, Perm Territory), is forming a new business community aimed at creating and developing sustainable growth of existing production sites, including with the involvement of external players. The created structure will be supervised by the management company Winter Technologies Group (WTG).

The main activity of WTG is to combine the best global and domestic practices and competencies in the field of winter technologies, as well as the development and implementation of the most effective solutions.

“The situation in 2020 has shown that traditional production models do not always allow us to respond promptly to challenges. Many large and medium-sized companies found themselves hostage to their own contrivances, which set the task for the owners to revise their asset portfolios, moving to a more mobile system. In the current conditions, the sharing economy solutions are gaining an important role, as large industrial parks are operating, by providing residents with a whole range of services – rent, consulting, logistics, engineering, research and others. By creating our community, we are aiming to introduce this model into Russian conditions, assessing its prospects and relevance in the interests of our companies and partners.” – said Rustam Gilfanov, UZPM founder, chairman of the WTG Innovation and Strategic Development Council.

WTG is an ecosystem of companies united by common values and mission for the successful development of each company and the entire group.

Remaining independent and self-reliant, partners of the business community create a comfortable business environment within the community for each enterprise, relying on the principles of partnership, mutual respect and compliance with the law.

One of the tasks of the WTG is to support successful Russian projects, primarily in the field of winter maintenance, and bring them to the global level.


Winter Technologies Group (WTG) is a community of companies combining the world’s best competencies and technologies, and specializing in the development and implementation of innovative solutions to create a comfortable and safe life in winter.
