Segezha Group – Official Partner of the Siberian Logger Championship

Segezha Group, an international timber holding company (a subsidiary of Sistema PJSFC), became an official partner of the VII regional qualifying competition Siberian Logger. The championship took place on 3–4 June this year in Divnogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Krai.

Divnogorsk Technical School of Forestry Technologies held the competition for logging machine operators (harvesters, forwarders, fork loaders) and wood fellers. More than 30 logging specialists took part in the competition. The Mayor of Divnogorsk expressed his gratitude to Segezha Group for providing sponsorship support for the championship.

‘Support for the Siberian Logger by major woodworking enterprises of the Krasnoyarsk Krai in tandem with the Ministry of Forestry will contribute greatly to the development of the human resources in the timber industry,’ says Olga Shirman, Head of the Forest Industry Department of the Ministry of Forestry of the Krasnoyarsk Krai. ‘Demonstrating professional skills, exchanging experience and assessing participants’ skills and competencies at the regional level all enhance the prestige of the logging industry. It also helps improve the main business processes of the industry.’

The winners of the regional competition will represent the Krasnoyarsk Krai at the VI Russian Championship ‘Logger XXI century’ this August.
