While AFT has been active in Russia for about 30 years, strong growth in recent years led to the decision to open our own sales representative office in order to better meet the needs of our clients.
The new location in Saint Petersburg will strengthen AFT's presence and position in the Russian and CIS markets for pulp and paper wear parts and equipment, as well as allow us to explore these markets for new opportunities. The Saint Petersburg team is led by Roman Smorgunov, Sales Manager and Julia Babenko, Head of Administration, who will be responsible for managing all operations and support functions.
As we aim to further expand our presence in the pulp and paper industry in Russia, the new office will provide better service to our existing clients as well as boost AFT sales on a global scale.
The office is located in the VANT business center on the Neva River and offers dedicated space for meeting with clients, partners, and our sales and delivery specialists who will be pleased to provide any support related to sales in Russia, CIS countries and the neighboring states.
