BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeraete GmbH opened a new washing machine factory in St. Petersburg, Russia. The factory will produce Slimline-brand washing machines, which are designed to be narrower than most European washers.

The new plant has an annual production capacity of some 350,000 appliances. BSH invested about 33 million Euros in the plant, which now has about 250 employees.

The new plant follows the opening of a refrigerator factory in 2007 and opened a distribution center this year.

"All our facilities here in St. Petersburg produce according to strict German quality and environmental standards," said Dr. Kurt-Ludwig Gutberlet, BSH CEO at the inauguration ceremony. "As of this year, the site is also certified according to international ISO standards for quality and environmental protection. And that's a good fit with the goals of the Russian government: By 2020, it wants to create economic growth without increasing energy and resource consumption."

The first appliances produced at the new plant will be available in Russia in September of 2012. Slimline washing machines are produced to satisfy Russian market demand for washing machines that are narrower than European washers and fit into the relatively small standard Russian apartments.
