Glavkosmetika is our Unique Plant, of which We are Particularly Proud

Candidate of Medical Sciences, Head of DRC Group of Companies

Opening new production facilities in Russia, particularly associated with innovative components, is one of the main economical and political priorities of our country. Building a new plant is a truly nontrivial process, it is a labor-intensive process requiring patience, courage and appropriate mental determination along with material possibilities and confidence in the future as well as in the success of the business in general. 

The plant is located in the ecologically intact location within the city of Udomlya in the northern part of the Tver region where the water parting takes place between the Baltic and Caspian seas, between the sheds of the Volga and the Neva rivers, in an area of many swamps and chains of hills forming a ridge in the north, on the shores of Pesvo and Udomlya lakes which are connected by 180 meters wide duct.

Within the industrial structure of the region the main role belongs to atomic energetics presented by Kalininskaya NPP (98% of the whole volume of the commercial manufacturing of the Udomlya District, 70% of the whole electricity produced in the Tver Region and 2.5% of the commercial output of the Tver Region). A long-term and complicated process of project development and building took several years. As a result, we have built one of the best and modern plants in our industrial field, not only in Russia, but outside Russia, too, a plant which successfully operates being modified and additionally equipped for more than 10 years. During the project development phase we have taken into consideration the best world-wide experience of organizing similar objects. Special attention has been drawn to the energy saving and enviroment preserving issues. For example, using a system of large windows in the facilities allowed decreasing electric power consumption.

During the production phase we use one of the best and safest types of plastic – PET G and special mono-filaments from the leading European manufacturers. The main supplier of the monofilament used to produce R.O.C.S. toothbrushes is the internationally acknowledged leader of the production segment – PEDEX company (Germany). The equipment used to manufacture R.O.C.S. toothbrushes is being designed and supplied through an exclusive request by the leading German manufacturers such as ARBURG and Zakhoransky.

The manufacturing process is ISO and GMP certified by the French company Afnor which is the world-leading auditor. Strict sanitary and hygiene standards were implemented (applicable for the manufacturing of plastic products for household purpose) The manufacturing processes are mechanized to the fullest degree.

Such aspects are of special importance for we manufacture products intended for children and we are the absolute leaders in this field. The manufacturing process itself is also unique. We have designed optimal technological and logistics routes within our manufacturing facilities, which allows using the facilities to maximum effect.

It is of particular interest to state that we perform independent designing of toothbrush colour layout based on the experiments conducted with the use of safe coloring pigments in our own laboratory. Which is why most of the colors one can find in the range of R.O.C.S.® toothbrushes are unique. It is important to note that (within our manufacturing process) a method of triple filament tip polishing is applied which prevents the development of mechanical damage to the dental enamel, restorations and gingival tissues trauma.

Plastic materials used in the manufacturing process meet the global and European quality and safety requirements applicable for toothbrush manufacturing. Our plastic products undergo multiple tests of toxic and microbiological safety along with a number of technological tests carried out in the Central Scientific Research Institute of Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery (CSRI DMS).

In November 2014 the Russian Dental Association have awarded the R.O.C.S. brand with approval marks (including toothbrushes for children and adults). In our opinion, this is one of the most important events of the R.O.C.S. brand of  the year of 2014.

Using the best global experience, strict adherence to standards and regulations along with the willingness to do the best quality products – this is our philosophy and the key to our successful development. For today personal oral hygiene products manufactured by R.O.C.S. brand and by our other brands are being sold not only in Russia.

* Today “Glavkosmetika” is the only industrial manufacturing facility within the Post-Soviet countries and beyond, which has its own high-technology base.
Having a manufacturing facility located in Russia allows for effective interaction with dentists nation-wide and engaging them (together with engineers and designers) for developing new toothbrush models, for testing its efficiency and safety and CIS countries, but in many other countries, including England, Japan, Germany, Finland, Turkey, etc.
