Employees speak about the Company

Tatyana Ryabova
Category 2 Process Engineer at Chief Process Eng. Dept.
"The Company continually improves the work conditions"
From 2004 to 2008 I studied at the Novodvinsk Industrial College, and I had on-the-job training at APPM's biological treatment laboratory. I loved the job immediately, and tried to do the best I could. I was excited to learn from experienced employees. At first I was offered employment for the period when other employees were on summer vacation, and then I got a permanent job. At the same time I continued my education, and I went to the Pulp and Paper Technology department at the Lomonosov Northern Arctic Federal University, and during the final years I already stood in for Chemical Engineer at the Bio Treatment lab. In 2013 I was invited to join the Chief Process Engineer department as a category 2 process engineer, where I am still working and I love it. APPM supports people who are keen to get more training and to grow. The Company continually improves the work conditions, adopts advanced, cutting-edge technologies, and appreciates the workers' successes. It's important that we have this great team with whom you can quickly resolve any complicated challenges that may arise. We always welcome new talented and hard working employees. Join the team.
Alexander Churakov
CHP-3 Shift Supervisor
"The Mill's management highly values and supports their employees"
I made the decision that I would work at the Mill when I was still a school student. In the choice of trade, I followed in my father's footsteps, he's an Arkhangelsk Technical University graduate of the Thermal Power Engineering department. I joined the Company in 1999 and immediately I delved into the work routine, and I enjoyed great support from the team in achieving our common goals. I started out as an auxiliary operator. I was excited about the work, every day brings something new at the APPM. It's important that the management highly values and encourages their employees. If you do your job diligently, you can always feel the support. The Mill is an advanced talent pool. It has everything for young professionals to grow in their trade, to build a successful career, for personal development.

I am from Novodvinsk and I have always wanted to work for APPM, and I am glad that everything has worked out for me! Now my main goals are to gain new knowledge, information, and professional experience. The Mill is a great place for career growth and development. The Company's social policy is impressive as well, it does not just cover the employees but also their family members.
