Abacus expands into Moscow

Abacus Lighting visited the Interlight conference in Moscow last week to announce plans for its new Russian business to build a plant in St Petersburg and open a new office in Moscow 2011.

This expansion will happen at a time when Russia, as a nation, is pursuing several ambitious construction projects in preparation for the Olympics in Sochi in 2014 and the 2012 international APEC summit.

‘Abacus is looking at how we can best support exciting developments in Russia including the Olympics and the 2012 APEC summit in Vladivostok,’ explained Andrew Morris Richardson, board director. ‘As leaders in lighting, we manufacture lights and lighting structures for projects ranging from road schemes, retail, airports and major sports grounds so we’re well placed to help the Russian government strengthen the infrastructure in these areas.’

Abacus opened a Russian office in St Petersburg in March this year and intends to open a Moscow office in the first quarter of next year.  The company’s presence in Russia represents an important staging post for the lighting firm’s global ambitions and continued development into Eastern European markets.
