VESCO History

1961

Druzhkivka Ore Mining founded as an independent enterprise. It consists of Novoraysky and Veselovsky (transferred from Chasov-Yarsky Ore Mining) clay quarries, and Bantyshevsky moulding sands quarry.

1967

Veselovsky quarry was withdrawn from the Druzhkivka Ore Mining. Enterprise begins to work independently and provides raw materials for factories and plants oriented to light, porcelain, ceramic, glass, radio engineering industries and other branches of the national economy.

1993

The state enterprise Druzhkivka Ore Mining transformed into the Open Joint-Stock Company Druzhkivka Ore Mining.

1994

1996

The Closed Joint-Stock Company Ogneupornerud was established.

2002

Company obtained international certificates of compliance with the requirements of the ISO 9001 quality management system and the ISO 14001 environmental management system. That means the indication of the quality of the supplied products of CJSC VESCO to European standards.

2006

Financial and Industrial Group System Capital Management (SCM) founded the United Minerals Group (UMG) holding for the operational management of clay assets: CJSC VESCO, OJSC Druzhkivka Ore Mining and Ogneupornerud CJSC.

2014

The measuring laboratory of PJSC VESCO has reached a new level in the study of the chemical, grain-size, mineralogical composition of clay, changes in its linear dimensions in drying and roasting. Investments in new equipment and employees training went to more than $ 2 million.

This work is carried out for them in the laboratory of PJSC VESCO, and the customer receives not only comprehensive information about the clay, but also recommendations on the selection of the most suitable type.

2015

The enterprise "Firm Donkeampromsirye" became part of the clay assets of UMG. The start of development the Mertsalovo station (Dobropolsky district) allowed solving problems with the shipment of clay by rail, and minimizing the risks arising in the process of delivering raw materials to customers.

2016

UMG transformed into investment company with assets under management of $ 400 million.

2017

By the end of the year, the company reached a record sales volume for the period of operation of clay enterprises - more than 3 million tons.

2018

VESCO has commissioned 2 new overburden groups. Investment in the project amounted to more than 100 mill UAH. The implementation of this project made it possible to increase the volume of overburden operations due to the increase in sales volumes, without attracting additional forces of contracting organizations to the development of their fields. Stacking complexes at the site for the preparation and shipment of finished products were modernized in 2018, which made it possible to increase the production of finished products (clay blending) by more than 20%, guaranteeing high quality and stable clay characteristics.
Public Joint-Stock Company Druzhkivka Ore Mining was reorganized into Private Joint-Stock Company Druzhkivka Ore Mining.
