At the production site of the correctional institution, a working meeting of the colony leadership with a manufacturer of shoes and workwear was held. During the meeting, the issues of attracting convicts to work in the framework of the production and supply of products for the needs of the customer were discussed.
It was noted that convicts employed in production have seniority – the time of work is taken into account when calculating the pension. Money is withheld from the wages of convicts to pay off claims, pay alimony and fines imposed by a court verdict.
It should be noted that recently the demand for the products manufactured in the institution has been growing. This is due to the fact that the quality of the goods meets all the requirements. The colony has the necessary equipment for the production of footwear: presses, machine tools, sewing machines.
In order to demonstrate the production capabilities of the institution, familiarize with the range of products, available free production areas, a by-pass was organized around the workshops and areas located in the production area of the institution.
During the meeting, positive results were achieved. An agreement was signed for the production and supply of products – shoe uppers. The approximate amount of the contract is 6 million rubles.
Currently, the institution has installed 14 pieces of sewing equipment, 2 presses and a machine with numerical control. In total, it is planned to attract 25 convicts at this site, working in 2 shifts.
It should be noted that the main industries in the institution are: light industry (clothing and footwear production), woodworking, production of building materials, lumber, food production (flour, cereals). Products made at the site for the production of paving slabs, curb stones, decorative tiles, and paving stones are in great demand.
