The goods of Tirotex are also sold in Poland (a new Trading Center has been opened there recently), in the Scandinavian countries and even in the USA. But the share of the Russian market is small due to double customs registration. But we are doing our best to establish cooperation with colleagues from Ivanovo, participating in specialized exhibitions held in Russia and presenting ourr products there."

During the visit to Tirotex the guests even witnessed the launch of a new digital printing REGGIANI machine.

The guests appreciated high quality of Tirotex produce. "All that we have seen here, is admirable. The produce of your company should be sold on the Russian market, it should reach the Russian consumers, no matter where they live. We will work on this together with the Transnistrian parliament. Such high-quality products will compete with any products supplied to Russia from other countries," - said Artem Turov.
