The history of the birth of the Borisov DOK goes back to the first decade of the 20th century. At that time, there was a continuous swampy forest on the territory of the future plant. In 1911, the merchant David Solomonovich Berman rented a piece of land from the nobleman I.Kh. Kolodeev for a period of 18 years for the construction of a sawmill. The place was chosen well: the bank of the river. Berezina, which made it possible to float timber and ship lumber, 1 verst from the Novo-Borisov railway station.
By the beginning of 1912, a brick boiler house building was built for two steam boilers, which served one two-cylinder steam engine with a capacity of 120 horsepower. A sawmill was built next to the boiler house, in which two sawmills brought from abroad, four hand-feed circular saws with wooden frames, and two pendulum saws were installed.
The plant was put into operation on March 1, 1912 with 25 workers. The work schedule was intense, the working day lasted 12 hours. The average wage was 30-35 kopecks per day. At that time, not bad money (for 3 rubles you could buy a heifer, a house in the village - for 100 rubles.)
The production brought the manufacturer a large profit, which made it possible to expand the plant. A chip shop appeared for two machines, a cooper machine with six drum tables for cutting cylindrical riveting. The button shop, which existed for one year, as it was unprofitable. But at its base, a plywood workshop was launched with two peeling machines and one steam press. In 1913 Berman's sawmill employed 148 workers. In the same year, another plant for two sawmills belonging to Laskov appeared on the territory of the plant.
After the revolution of 1917, the owners of the factories emigrated, both factories passed to Zemsnab and received one name - "Woodworker". During the period of German and Belopolskaya occupation, in 1918-1920, the plant was practically inactive and officially began to function on August 15, 1921 as part of the 13th group management (LesBel association).
In 1925, the plant began to be called the Komintern woodworking plant, and a year later the name was changed to the Komintern plant.
By 1929, a railway line was laid to the territory of the plant and a furniture workshop was built, which a year later was steadily producing 300,000 bent chairs from maple and ash per year.
After the Great Patriotic War, the enterprise experienced a rebirth, as it was completely destroyed during the occupation. Post-war life dictated new conditions. The national economy needed a huge amount of wood products. The enterprise was moving by leaps and bounds in the direction of manufacturing home interior items.
By the half-century anniversary of the plant in 1962, the furniture workshop had grown into a modern furniture enterprise with advanced technology of that time. They produced multifunctional cabinet furniture.
In 1971, the production of the Astra living room was launched, which began to be exported. At that time, this furniture set was the dream of any housewife. In the same year, the enterprise became part of the Borisovdrev Production Association as a branch and a new sawmill was launched, where 4 modern two-story sawmills, a chipper were installed, and the main technological operations were mechanized.
1974 - a new finishing department with two lines of coating machines was put into operation.
1988-1989 - a gas pipeline was laid and a gasified boiler house.
In 1993, a workshop for the production of thin medium-density fibreboard (MDF) was launched. In the first years of operation, the shop produced no more than 300 thousand tons. m2 of slab per month. In 2004-2005 the packaging of finished products and the supply of chips (raw materials) to the workshop were mechanized. Optimization of production processes allowed the workshop to reach the maximum production volume. Already in 2008, the production of fiberboard was 2,000 thousand m2 per month.
Medium Density Fibreboard is a sheet material obtained by hot-pressing a dry mass of wood fibers with the addition of chemical additives and formed into an endless carpet. The plates have a double-sided smooth surface, thickness from 2.5 to 4.0 mm. Depending on the physical and mechanical parameters, fiberboard is divided into grades TSN - 30 and TSN - 40.
Since 2003, on the basis of TSN-40 fibreboard boards, the production of boards lined with film material has been launched at the Barberan laminating line made in Spain. In 2009, in order to increase the output (to meet the increased consumer demand) and expand the size range, the second line of the Barberan company was launched with automated loading of plate packages and sheet feeding.
Thin fibreboards lined with film materials are a wide range of wood decors reproducing the natural wood texture that is fashionable today, widely used for the production of middle-class doors, wall panels, furniture, etc.
From 2004 to 2015, a phased reconstruction of the sawmill and processing industry is being carried out:
-for a more thorough sorting of roundwood and accurate accounting, an automatic sawlog sorting line for 30 pockets was launched;
-two streams were organized for sawlog sawing - one on the basis of the LINCK milling line; the second on the basis of sawmill frames "Mohringer" and "Esterer" made in Germany, with the installation of an automatic line for filing sawn timber "Optimes" in the stream;
-for cutting sawlogs with a diameter of more than 60 cm, an AKE vertical band sawmill and a slab processing machine were installed. An automatic sorting line for raw lumber with 16 pockets ensures their sorting by size and direction of processing, followed by the formation of drying bags;
-a trimming and repacking line was installed;
-the drying facilities have been completely renewed – ten automatic drying chambers of Secal and Muhlbock firms have been put into operation;
-a drying chamber of the Hildebrand company was put into operation and the volume of simultaneous loading of lumber for drying amounted to 1,200 m3, which completely covers the need for production.
In 2007, a site for processing low-grade sawn timber was organized with the installation of an optimizing miter saw "OptiCut 200" and a line for splicing billets along the length with a mini tenon "GreCon", Germany.
In 2008, instead of the Tramles planer, a high-performance planer "Profiles" from Ledinek, Slovenia, was installed with a feed rate of lumber for processing - up to 100 m/min.
To expand the range of planed products in 2011, a longitudinal milling machine “Powermat - 500” from Weinig, Germany was installed. The modernization of production allowed the enterprise to start producing various molded products - 24,000 m3 per year.
At present, the range of planed products manufactured by JSC "Borisovsky DOK" almost completely covers the volume of finishing profiles used in construction for both external and internal decoration of buildings and premises with a thickness of products from 12 to 45 mm. The invaluable advantages of natural wood as a facing material for exterior and interior decoration of a house make it possible to consider this material almost indispensable in many respects.
In 2006, the enterprise organized the production of glued beams and houses from glued beams. The equipment of Ledinek, Smidler, Dimter firms, mounted in a single technological line, makes it possible to produce both glued structural timber with a maximum section of 600x220mm, and profiled (wall) timber - with a thickness of 72 to 220mm and a length of up to 13m. Adaptation of the architectural design for production is carried out directly at the enterprise using the Cadwork software.
In 2011, for the purpose of deeper processing of wood and expansion of the range, the enterprise organized the production of "Garden Houses" from an array of planed moldings with a wall thickness of 18 to 68 mm. For cutting cups on the wall details, a modern Auer Twin machine made in Austria is installed simultaneously on both sides. For a complete set of houses with windows and doors, it was purchased and built into a single technological flow - a Unicontrol-6 machine made in Germany.
Simultaneously with the reconstruction of the sawmill shop in 2004, the production of fuel wood pellets (TDG) was organized. In connection with the growth of consumption and the diversified energy policy in Europe in 2010, a workshop for the production of fuel wood pellets was built at the plant with the installation of an additional granulator from Munch, manufactured in Germany, with a capacity of 1.5 tons per hour. An aspiration system for collecting and transporting dry chips from the processing shop was installed to ensure the rhythmic supply of raw materials for the production of TGG.
Fuel wood granules are the granulated wood pulp, alternative to traditional energy carriers - oil and gas. Environmentally friendly type of fuel.
Starting from 2010, along with the production of consumer goods, the enterprise, having acquired logging equipment - Timberjacr forwarders and Timberjacr harvester, having leased the forest fund, has mastered the process of harvesting standing timber.
In 2010, a centralized area for the production of wood chips from technological raw materials was organized on a new, high-performance chipping machine Vekoplan made in Germany. The line provides for the grinding of all types of lumpy waste, which are formed during the processing of wood.
