In February, 1984 the site have reached capacity of 10 000 ton per year to be packed in large packaging and 50 000 tons per year to be packed in small packing. During stable operational period of the late 80's and early 90's, production of synthetic detergents of brands "Saltanat", "Era-A", "Slavyanka" and "Lotus" was mastered, which brought profit to the enterprise. On March 8, 1995 due to the lack of certain types of raw materials and working assets the production was stopped.
              In May, 2000, detergent’s plant was purchased by Kazphosphate LLC in order to launch it after a long idle time.
New affiliate was established on the basis of the production of detergents, which main activity is the manufacture of various industrial products and consumer goods on the basis of mineral processing.
