Strategic interests of the Group embrace different spheres of activity: manufacturing of food products, construction, machine-building, financial markets and provision of some types of services. Major business directions of “Borodino” Group of Companies are structurally divided into divisions. The Group finds good opportunities for investment, purchasing the assets, underestimated due to assumed risks, low liquidity, demotivation or lack of demand on the part of market participants. The Group stakes on the long-term perspective in order to take full advantage of the whole investment potential. Investment philosophy accepted determines the Group’s position at the market today, and further on it is going to play an important role in the successful activity of the corporation.
The formation of Borodino Group of Companies started from the launching of beverages and foods production. The first production facility of the Group was the plant Spaso-Borodinskie Vody in Mozhaysk. In 1993 the Group acquired a small bankrupt enterprise and turned it into a modern regional beverage producing plant. In order to meet the growing demand, GC “Borodino” decided to commission new facilities and, thus, to expand the output of beverages. In 2002 the Group acquired another plant in the unique region of Kislovodsk – Kavminvody. That same year the construction of a beverage bottling plant – Borodino-Orenburg was launched.
In 2000 GC “Borodino”, having established itself on the beverage market, decided to launch food production, namely confectionary and various types of preserves. At this time the Group purchased the confectionary producing plant Mona, the Medynsky plant Russkoe Morozhenoe, and the Kondrovsky meat processing plant, further redesigned into to preserves-making plant Sovprodprom. In 2003 Syr-moloko plant as a component of the Group, the former Grayvoronsky milk processing plant, launched the production of butter “Krest`yanskoe”, condensed and dried milk. To meet the Group factories production process needs in all the live stock products the service of collective farm in Belgorod region was enlisted in 2005.
The structure of the Group and all its facilities production chains either include Armenian canning plant Borodino, earlier Ararat-Canning, - manufacturer of tomato paste. Today the plant produces various fruit and vegetable preserves, as well as semi-processed products in the form of concentrates and purees.
To expand the production of confectionary, a confectionary plant in Volgograd called “Slavyanka” which had been in the business for over seventy years was acquired in 2004. The manufacture performed in Moscow plant “Mona” was transferred to that site.
The trade and procurement company Borsnab specializes in sales and purchase of raw materials and supplies to meet the Group facilities needs.
Borodino Trading Houses are assigned for selling the whole range of food products manufactured by the GC plants. Today these Trading Houses also successfully operate in five Russian cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, Kislovodsk and Orenburg. GC Borodino introduced its creation and development project of chain store Productoria on the retail food market in 2012.
The foundation of machine building division was laid in 2000. Due to the lack of Russian food equipment producers, the Group decided to settle an industrial facility at the territory of “Spaso-borodinskie vody” plant, dedicated to making of filling lines primarily for its food division production plant need. The foundation of the facility dedicated to food equipment manufacturing started with the purchasing of metal-working machinery. A year later the specialists of “Borodino” GC mastered the production of spare details, in two years they started to produce some parts of the lines for affiliated companies of the Group.
By 2004 the Board of Directors of the Group had already firmly decided to have a machine building division, in order to produce on its basis food equipment without changing the profile of the company. The plant which fitted mostly the idea of realization was “Savelovo machine building plant”, which was in crisis and needed new management. “Savelovo machine building plant” is an introducer and creator of unique metal-processing , including numerically-controlled machinery and working centers, universal lathe and milling metal-cutting machine tools for different industry. In May of 2004 “Savelovo” joined the group and reinforced the the platform of the machine building division. The Group, not changing machine building profile of “Savelovo” plant held restructuring, diversification and technical, re-equipment of the plant. A new plant, producing and projecting modern packaging equipment for Russian food industry “Bormash” was created on a part of “Savelovo” production area.
In 2007 the management of the Group accepted strategic program of development of machine-building business. The idea itself is based on the transmission of innovative technologies of the West to the territory of Russia through buying the purchase of leading companies of the world market.
In order to improve positions on the packaging and food equipment market in April, 2007 the Group purchased 100% of shares of a leading European producer SBC Bottling and Canning (Montechio Emilia, Italy). Aiming at advanced technologies implementation in Russian machine building, the Group acquired 85,7% of shares of “Jobs” company (Italy, Piacenza), the world leader of working out and manufacturing Hi-Speed 5-axis milling machines, used in aerospace and automotive industry. “Jobs” integration in machine building division will make it possible to strengthen the Group’s leading positions in the machine building sector of the market.

In April 2008 restructuring of investment and construction business of the Group was completed. Due to expansion of activity at this market three self-sustaining autonomous divisions: development division, construction division and telecommunications division. The new structure is more suitable to the specifics of the branch. In its plans the Group intends to take the leading positions in the sphere of unique projects sale at the market of elite and business-class real estate, and also to become one of the leaders in the segment of industrial development. The essence of development division’s activity is to manage investment projects of the Group in the sphere of real estate.
On the whole, the activity of the development division implies the following: the choice of economically effective lproject, purchase or leasing a land plot for housing, attachment of project to the plot, coordination of all require utilities, search and attraction of investors, selection of contractors, financing and control over the process of project performance.

Commercial real estate determines a lot of management versions with one final goal – profit obtainment.
The division intends to expand industrial development – designing and turn-key construction of industrial and storage designation in Russia, the CIS and abroad. In Russia this sector has rather high expansion potential both due to the inflow of foreign investment targeted at the establishment of new large enterprises, and to the development of Russian enterprises requiring significant modernization and expansion of capacities. At the same time the number of soviet-period buildings, suitable for re-development, is decreasing. Thus, manufacturers usually have to concentrate on construction “from zero” – from foundation to the roof.
