The history of formation and development of OJSC "Beryozastroymaterialy"The company started its history on the 2nd of January, 1967, when "Beryoza plant of construction materials" was founded. At the time of creation in the enterprise structure included:
- Brick factory in "Beryoza" (Beryoza) with production capacity of 8140 thousand bricks per year;
- Tile plant (Beryoza) with production capacity of 850 thousand units per year;
- Brick factory "Kabaky" (Kabaky village) with production capacity of 4070 thousand bricks per year;
- Lime factory (Kabaky village) with production capacity of 2,400 tons per year.
In 1975 the enterprise organized a workshop for production of garments.
At that time the plant employed 254 people and a dormitory was build for 232 places, with a sports hall.
At the same time a plant for the production of frits was built and put into operation, the main expensive component for glaze preparation.
In 1992 the plant of mineral wool products was commissioned. The main item is the building of mineral wool piercing mats (with the capacity of 230 thousand m3 a year).
In accordance with the order of the Ministry of architecture and construction of Belarus in 1995, the association was subordinated to the Ministry and renamed into the state production enterprise "Beryozastroymaterialy".
In 1999 the first line for the production of ceramic tiles began to operate on the factory of mineral wool products. In the same year we mastered the production of broaching packages from mineral wool, a department for the production of ceramic friezes was organized at ceramic tiles plant and a new canteen was opened for the company employees.
In 2001 the company started reconstruction and modernization of production of ceramic tiles.
In 2002 ceramic tile workshop № 3 was upgraded: a new Italian press and glazing line were installed, as a result the capacity of the workshop increased from 350 thousand m2 per year to 540 thousand m2.
In 2003 reconstruction of the workshop № 1 started. Instead of two lines with the total volume of 450 thousand m2 of ceramic wall tiles a year, one line for production of floor tiles with capacity of 1 million m2 per a year was installed. Two lines for the production of ceramic wall tiles with a total capacity of 1 million m2 per a year were dismantled in the workshop No. 2. Since mid-August on one of these lines there was installed and put into operation the line for production of ceramic tiles with the capacity of 1.5 million m2 per year.
In 2005 the company has implemented the quality management system based on international standards ISO series 9000:2000. The sales volume of ceramic tiles was achieved at the level of reconstructed production capacity.
In 2008 the line for production of ceramic tiles of bigger size (25x35cm) was installed with using of the innovative technology of single firing. The line capacity is 3 million m2 per a year.
In June 2011, the line for production of insulating materials was removed in favor of increasing the volume of production of ceramic tiles. In December 2011, on the vacated areas it was planned the start up of a new SACMI line for the production of tiles.
In early 2013 a line for production of porcelain was launched.
