In 2009, Cimbria Unigrain secured the first of two large orders from the Ukrainian grain and seed exporter Nibulon. The order worth EUR 20 million covered eight silo facilities for storing, drying and loading grain and seed.
The Ukrainian customer however was obliged to borrow at a high interest rate in Ukraine to finance the major equipment purchases, which in turn created uncertainty regarding the order for the Danish supplier.
Nibulon is Ukraine's largest grain and seed exporter and a high-growth company. Nibulon uses Cimbria Unigrain's equipment to extend and standardise its storage and transportation facilities by the rivers of Ukraine and the Black Sea.
Cimbria Unigrain has supplied equipment to Nibulon since 2003 and was naturally keen to maintain the good customer relationship.
