Phosphorit Industrial Group

Today we can definitively state that the first few years of the 21st century were the beginning of a new, fruitful stage in the life of Phosphorit Industrial Group. During this time, the enterprise in Kingisepp became a key element of EuroChem Holding. The creative input of the personnel and their responsible attitude towards work allows us to produce high-quality goods that are demanded at both the Russian and the international markets. Our employees are real professionals with responsible attitude to work, generational succession and respect for traditions. I am convinced that today we have high potential, both human and technological, to maintain the leading position in the sector. A key to the development strategy of Phosphorit is its social policy. We have experience of working with the local administration, as well as with budget organizations. Over many years Phosphorit, the Administration of Kingiseppsky district and the Government of Leningrad Region sign agreements on socio-economic cooperation, according to which the enterprise is obliged to support priority charity projects – education, sports, healthcare. Over the last 15 years, almost 400 million rubles were allocated by the company in aid of such projects.
