“Group of Companies “Titan” takes its origin since November 20, 1989, when Mikhail Alexandrovich Sutyaginsky created Youth Center “Titan” (MC “Titan”) by the Komsomol committee of PO “Omsknefteorgsintez” (ONPZ). In compliance with the Statutes, major fields of the organization’s activities were “development of industrial and social activity through creation and support of amateur, production, cooperative and other associations”. In its first years the company was engaged primarily in trade and procurement work.
1992 - 1997
MC “Titan” began to master new fields – cargo transportation and developer business.
on the basis of Youth Center “Titan” limited partnership “West-Siberian Trade and Industrial Company “Titan” (ZSTPF “Titan”) is established. ZSTPF “Titan” was preoccupied with renovation, construction, making of construction materials and upholstered furniture, retail and wholesale trade in foods, realization of VAZ automobiles. Wholesale trade in petroleum products becomes the most promising field of activity. Freight transportation sector continues to develop, in this period “Titan” was given membership in Association of International Automotive Freight Carriers (ASMAP).
1994 can be regarded as the starting year for the formation of “Titan” as a petrochemical producing structure. On the basis of production capacities of public company “Omsky Kauchuk” was created CJSC “ECOOIL” (ZSTPF “Titan” – among the founders), Production of oxygenic additive for motor fuels – methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) – becomes the main field of activity of the new company. On August 19, 1995 the first tonne of MTBE is produced.
Since 1998 ZSTPF “Titan” – general investor and shareholder on public company “Omsky Kauchuk”.
Direction of freight transportation and filling stations is separated in the company as a detached business – company limited “INVESTHIMPROM” is created.
Widening of activities and constantly increasing need in carrying out construction works, rise of expenditures on this article in the budget define decision of “Titan” to create proprietary construction company – company limited “Omsk Construction Company – 2000” (OSK-2000). Company is engaged in production of general construction works, erection of buildings and installations. In the same year “Titan” expands geography of its presence in Russia and registers enterprise “Bash-Titan” in the city of Ufa which is occupied with realization of liquid and gaseous fuel.
“Titan” continues to expand geography of its presence. In 2003 on the territory of Azerbaijan (the city of Baku) “Group of Companies “Titan” establishes a subsidiary which produces petrochemical goods. At the same time a subsidiary with foreign investments is created on the territory of Ukraine. This company also becomes an operator on the petrochemical goods market of Ukraine and CIS.
GC “Titan” receives first certificate of VIP-client of Sberbank of Russia.
Growth in the sales volumes, widening of supplies geography, increase in the need of proprietary RTCs and base of equipment define decision of the “Group of Companies “Titan” to create its own enterprises in the market of railroad transportation and leasing. Enterprise “Titan-VKM-Trans” is created. In the same period “Group of Companies “Titan” starts realization of a new investment project – construction of own thermal power plant on the base of the enterprise “Neftehimservis”.

Having analyzed the existing production capacities, raw materials base, demand of the world market, “Group of Companies “Titan” starts realization of a new investment project on petrochemical market – construction on the territory of Omsk region of a 180 thousand tonnes per year polypropylene plant. In may 2005 a subsidiary, company limited “Omsk Polypropylene Plant” (“Poliom” Ltd.), is created, its main sphere of activity is production of plastics and synthetic resins in initial forms. Project of the plant construction is carried out with attraction of funds of state corporation “Bank of Development and Foreign Economic Activity (Vneshekonombank)”. According to the schedule, polypropylene plant is to be started in 2011.
Formation of one of the major fields of the company development starts – the agro-industrial sphere. After the start of realization of construction of biochemical complex on deep processing of grains in Kazakhstan, “Group of Companies “Titan” makes decision to create the similar, but more powerful production facility in Russia. In January a subsidiary company limited “APK-Titan” was registered for the work on the markets of plant growing and animal breeding, which means creation of raw materials base for production capacities of the future biocomplex.
Within agroindustrial investment project of the “Group of Companies “Titan”, the first complex on deep processing of grains is opened on the territory of CIS, in Kazakhstan, named “Biohim” (the city of Tayinsha, Pavlodar region). One of the products of “Biohim” is bioethanol – intermediate product which is used for the making of ethyl tertiary-butyl ether (ETBE), high-octane ecologically pure additive for motor gasoline.
Joint enterprise «SILICIUM KAZAKHSTAN» is created in Karaganda (the Republic of Kazakhstan) for the making of metallurgical and polycrystalline silicon.
Another subsidiary, company limited “Titan-Agro” is created (the company which is realizing project of biocomplex construction on the territory of Omsk region).
