The factory will be placed on 3 hectares of the territory. The project also envisages setting up ancillary sites. The construction works are already underway, and after completion, it will be able to produce 200 one-ton pitchers, and after a year the productivity will increase from 5 to 7,000 pitchers.", noted Aleksandre Chinchaladze.
