The division has also assumed responsibility for the company “Tomskneftekhim” and the task of cooperating with the enterprise NPP “Nefekhimiya”, which should increase the company’s operational efficiency and determine the strategy of sites’ development.
Sergei Komyshan has been appointed as the Head of the new division. This expert has, to date, worked at SIBUR as the Deputy Director of the Plastics and Organic Synthesis Division. The commercial unit of the Division shall be headed by Andrei Frolov, Deputy Director for Sales, who previously held a similar post in the Plastics and Organic Synthesis Division.
In terms of sales and marketing, the Division’s management is inheriting the key values of SIBUR: customer orientation, innovation, and a transparent partnership approach. Together with products from the polyolefin series, the Base Polymers Division will benefit from receiving a good part of the managers that focus on these segments, thereby allowing the employees to focus more on achieving customer satisfaction. SIBUR shall continue to pursue its strategy of increasing its share of direct contracts, as well as increase the use of open sales tools, including electronic trading platforms.
The establishment of a new division should not entail increased staffing levels and is not associated with business growth. Job vacancies in the Base Polymers DIvision shall be primarily filled with people who are already employed by the company.
