VKG Acquires Cinder Block Production Facility

TALLINN( – Oil shale processing giant Viru Keemia Grupp announced April 11 that it has purchased a production line formerly owned by Silbet Plokk, a bankrupt Kohtla-Järve company that manufactured cinder blocks for construction. VKG’s management said the acqusition was strategically beneficial because the raw materials used to make the cinder blocks are the same as those produced as waste material in shale processing.

“From the perspective of sustainable shale processing, success can only be achieved when the production fully utlizes all the organic and mineral potential of the shale,” the company said in a statement.

Before its bankruptcy, Silbet Plokk was one of the larger employers in the industrial town of Kohtla-Järve.

“Our goal is to find synergies between the two industrial complexes and the re-establishment of nearly 200 jobs that the company once gave the region,” said VKG CEO Priit Rohumaa.

The eight companies that make up VKG employ approximately 1,600 people.
