In July 2021, the international holding WR Group was expended through the establishment of a new subsidiary, the WR Engineering LLC. The engineering company headquartered in Moscow will complement the holding’s service portfolio in the field of EPC projects (engineering-procurement-construction).
Until recently, the WR Group consisted of the business units WR Certification and WR Logistics. The new business division WR Engineering is intended to meet the demand of WR Group Holding’s major industrial customers for EPC contractors.
The main activities of the WR Engineering LLC are focused on engineering design, planning and construction project management of industrial plants and production facilities in Russia. Construction progress control, field supervision and technical consulting are additional services of the newly founded engineering company.
“Our goal is to support customers of the WR Group Holding in their complex investment and construction projects in the oil and gas, chemical, mining and other industrial sectors from A to Z” – explained Wadim Rosenstein, the CEO of WR Group Holding. “We have been present on the global market with our certification, logistics and customs services since 2014. The new company WR Engineering will create additional benefits for our clients.”
Andrey Bleskin, a graduate engineer, has been appointed to the position of the head of the new division and the managing director of WR Engineering LLC. Bleskin has extensive experience in the industrial sector. One of his projects was the design and construction management of Zapsibneftekhim, the largest modern petrochemical complex in Russia. Prior to founding WR Engineering LLC, which has become part of the WR Group Holding, Bleskin held the position of Chief Operating Officer in the WR Certification division.
WR Engineering LLC has successfully passed the certification procedures according to the national and international standards. The company’s quality management system meets the requirements of both Russian GOST and international ISO standards. The company is a member of two non-profit self-regulatory organisations in Russia. WR Engineering LLC holds SRO licences from the National Alliance of Building Designers GlavProjekt as well as from the Association for the Promotion of Restoration and Revitalisation of the National Architectural Heritage “Architectural Heritage”.
