As part of the measures taken in this regard, "Azertexnolayn” Limited Liability Company was given residential status of the Sumgait Chemical Industrial Park on December 23rd, 2013. Currently, three production enterprises of "Azertechnoline” LLC- Steel Pipe, Polyethylene Products and Technical Equipment Plants run in the area of the SCIP.

Casting plant, processing, models and engineering work is carried out by the workers in accordance with demands. There are two large 5 tons induction furnaces at the metal smelting plant. We mainly produce water valves, valves and their parts, as well as many fields of iron. In every stage, products are checked by employees of the quality management system.

Then number of employees will be 250 : " 98 percent of employees are local staff. As, local staff has specialized in this field over production for more years. Our plant has been provided with more modern equipments, so, specialists, invited from abroad give extension courses for local employees. After 1-2 months, cadres successfully finishing trainings begin to work at the plant. Moreover, different vacancies on this field are regularly posted in the official website of the Sumgait Chemical Industrial Park as well as the vacancies are sent to state employment offices and employment centers.
