Cherepovets (Vologda region) – Alexander Gilgenberg has been appointed as General Director of Apatit. Alexander has worked at PhosAgro enterprises since 1999. Prior to today's appointment, he held the position of First Deputy General Director of Apatit.
Vladimir Davydenko, who previously headed Apatit, will now oversee the technical development of PhosAgro enterprises.
PhosAgro CEO Andrey Guryev said: "These changes in the management structure of our production assets will enable the Company to take on the challenges we face at the current stage of our development. PhosAgro’s recently-announced Strategy to 2025 calls for a large-scale investment programme of USD 3 billion. This requires direct personal control over investment activities, which will be carried out by Vladimir Davydenko with his enormous professional experience in this area. As First Deputy General Director of Apatit for technical development, he will focus on the construction and modernisation of production facilities using best available techniques."
By 2025, PhosAgro plans to increase its production of fertilizers and feed phosphates to 11.7 million tonnes, which is 25% higher compared to 2018. The strategy also calls for the range of fertilizer grades produced by the Company to expand from 39 in 2018 to 50, including new high-performance brands with bio-additives.
