Bitsevskaya Factory, JSC
“Bitsevskaya Factory” JSC specializes in production of felt shoes and has more than 150 years of experience in this field. The company actively developed in the Soviet era and does not reduce the growth rate today. The factory has released more than 26 million pairs of felt footwear from the 1950s to the present day.
In 2004 “Bitsevskaya Factory” acquired “Krasny Oktyabr” (“Red October”) felt footwear factory in the town of Kalyazin in Tver region. As a result, the production capacity of the factory has been increased by more than a half. The factory in the town of Kalyazin had a major overhaul of industrial and office premises. Equipment of Bitsevskaya factory was moved to Kalyazinsk. Equipment of “Krasny Oktyabr” has been repaired, reconfigured and upgraded for production of boots by technologies of Bitsevskaya factory. There was a lot of work on training and retraining of personnel to manufacture felt footwear according to “Bitsa” quality standards. Thus, the two mills were united in a single one, combining powers and all achievements of two oldest enterprises of felting industry.
