Ak Gaýa Economic Society, the producer and trader of construction materials in Turkmenistan, exports its dry building mixtures to the CIS countries, in particular, to Russia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan.
In an interview with Business Turkmenistan at the exhibition dedicated to Turkmenistan’s 30th independence anniversary in Ashgabat, the company’s representative said the Ak Gaýa’s plant, located in Turkmenbashi etrap of Balkan velayat, is capable of producing 100,000 tons of building materials per year.
The company produces four types of plasters: perlite gypsum plaster, finishing plaster, molding gypsum, and machine applied gypsum plaster. Materials are packed in bags of 30 kilograms.
The company purchases the main raw materials from local producers, while importing chemical additives from Germany, Turkey, Ukraine and South Korea in order to improve the quality and effectiveness of building mixtures.
