About company

Wool scouring factory located in the village Ilyich of Gomel region began its activity in 1963. The main objective of the factory was to provide the light industry enterprises of Belarus with raw material — a wide range of scoured wool. Factory production was steadily increased, reaching its peak by the mid-80s of more than 10,000 tons of scoured wool per year. However production fell gradually and didn’t reach a thousand tons of scoured wool per year, that did not allow to maintain an acceptable economic condition of the factory.

In 2007 belarusian-irish Ilyich Wool Washers Ltd. was founded and it bought the industrial complex of the factory and took several measures to increase the load of the enterprise and achieve its economic stability.
