INTELMAS Joint Venture
Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor entered the world of entrepreneurs with years of R&D experience and knowledge of high precision technologies. In the late 1980s, Mr. Kantor used his experience as head of a Russian-U.S. joint venture called INTELMAS (Intellectual Materials and Systems).
INTELMAS supplied computers to the USSR/Russia and was one of the pioneers in developing the country’s computer networks, the first of which was installed at the Academy of Sciences.
In 1993, Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor came to the helm of Acron agrochemical company. Under his leadership, Acron has become a world-leading producer and distributor of fertilizers. The Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs have recognised Acron as ‘Best Russian Enterprise’ ten times.
Today Acron is a large holding producing over 40 chemical products, with an annual output exceeding 4.1 million tonnes. Acron owns and operates three agrochemical facilities: JSC Acron (Veliky Novgorod, Russia), JSC Dorogobuzh (Smolensk region, Russia) and Hongri Acron (Shandong province, People’s Republic of China). The Holding also owns CJSC North-Western Phosphorous Company, with subsoil licenses to mine apatite-nepheline ore deposits, a sales arm called CJSC Agronova, the rail transportation operator CJSC Acron-Trans and two terminal complexes, LLC Andrex (Kaliningrad region, Russia) and AS BCT (Port of Sillamäe, Estonia).
The Russian market has been a high priority for Acron, and the company supplies its products to all farming regions in the country. Acron’s products find a ready market in more than fifty countries on almost every continent. The Holding’s key markets are China, Western Europe and South America.
