Kelechek LLC is a manufacturer of energy efficient windows, doors and installer of modern heating systems that was established some 20 years ago and is located in Bostery, a village in the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan.
To balance out the mostly seasonal business in the regions and to increase its market share against foreign imports by expanding its local production facilities the company opened a manufacturing facility in Bishkek in 2018.
The company applied for a KyrSEFF loan to finance the US$ 224,295 investment. With these funds, the company purchased a new automated and energy efficient PVC window and door production line. In January 2020, production commenced at the new site.
With this investment, the company increased its production capacity for window production from 15m² to 300m² output and PVC doors from 5m² to 100m² per day. Additionally, the products are now of much higher quality, 25 new jobs were created and the health and safety of workers was improved.
The implementation of the project reduces the energy consumption of the facility by 34%, with specific primary energy savings of 315.7 MWh per year while increasing production efficiency, and reduces harmful CO2 emissions by 16.3 tonnes per year.
After the successful project verification, the company receives a grant of US$22,295 from the European Union (IFCA).
