About Gilan Pacific Construction
GILAN-TN Construction Materials, operating in Azerbaijan as Pacific Construction, produces a range of construction materials and chemicals for the domestic and export markets. Incorporating numerous Gilan companies, Pacific Construction has established numerous partnerships designed to secure the development of international business co-operation for Azerbaijani companies.
Pacific Construction operates primarily in the following areas:
- Construction chemicals and paint production
- XPS Insulation Board production
- Gilan Sandwich Panel production
- Gilan Gypsum production
- Gilan Calcite production Construction of the main Pacific
Construction complex commenced in 2007, and since that time the facility has grown to incorporate numerous industrial projects.
Construction Chemicals And Paint Production
The construction chemicals and paint production unit was opened in 2009 and is situated on a 3000m² site equipped with specialist equipment sourced from Germany and Turkey. The construction chemicals and paint production unit consists of three departments:
Powder Production Field
The powder production field manufactures cementitious construction chemicals, including: tile adhesives (sebond, paraflex); insulation materials (izolir 901, 902, UV); joint fillers (Ardol flexar); concrete supplements (paskret st100 tx, F, T); and concrete thickeners (arcon)
The facility features two production lines; two packing/wrapping machines (1kg and 5kg joint filler production range); 80 tonne raw materials bunker; high-pressure loaders; dehumidifier; and a 27m-high steel silo. Total powder production is 30,000 tonnes per annum.
Concrete Admixtures and Finishing Products
The concrete admixtures plant produces B-Component (liquid) concrete admixtures; PVA-based insulating materials; in addition to freeze-thaw admixtures (Melkret 800, 200 K, Lubrand Antifreeze) and retarder admixtures (Melkret 500, 200). The facility produces 11,000 tonnes of plasticisers, super-placticisers, accelerators and other polymer-based concrete admixtures yearly. The products are marketed to construction companies and concrete producers, enabling the optimisation of concrete mix design and enhancing concrete aesthetics.
Paint Production Facility
The paint production facility produces water-based emulsion paints, including the production for Marshall paints (under license from the international company, AZKO-NOBEL). Importing raw materials from countries including Turkey, Iran, China and Russia, the facility produces 4,500 tonnes of paint annually.
Pacific XPS Insulation
Pacific XPS Insulation manufactures XPS (expanded polystyrene) panels at a purpose-built 1,500m² production plant. The panels are designed to enhance building envelope thermal efficiency, and have been proven to reduce heating costs by 45–50 per cent. The plant produces 30,000m³ of panels per annum.
Gilan Goranboy Gypsum
Gilan Goranboy Gypsum incorporates the latest advanced production facilities that maximise safety and minimise environmental impact. It produces myriad gypsum-based products such as plaster with aggregate, building gypsum, prime plaster, space fillings, plasterboard and coving. The factory ranks amongst the largest gypsum building materials plants in the Caucasus.
The quality of the products produced by Gilan Goranboy Gypsum have been confirmed by independent experts from Russian, Turkish and German laboratories and on-site laboratory equipment ensures that the products comply with international standards and achieve the required certification.

Gilan Goranboy Calcite
Gilan Goranboy Calcite specialises in the preparation of gypsum mixtures. Supplied with raw material from the Gilan Calcite Field, the plant has a daily production capacity of 250 tonnes of minerals. Of the total amount, 100 tonnes are utilised by Gilan Goranboy Gypsum; 50 tonnes by other Gilan production facilities, including Pacific Construction; and 100 tonnes are marketed to other enterprises.
Gilan Sandwich Panels
Sandwich panels are two structural board layers surrounding an insulating foam layer. The board may comprise either sheet metal or oriented strand board (OSB), and the internal foam comprises either expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam or polyurethane (PE) foam.
The panels can be used to replace numerous conventional building components, such as studs and joists, insulation, and both vapour and air barriers. Buildings constructed using sandwich panels will have higher insulating properties than standard structures, thereby reducing operating costs. They also reduce construction time.
International quality panels
The panels facilitate the efficient construction of energy-reduced, modern, residential buildings and office blocks. All sandwich panels are constructed using the latest technology on an Italian-built production line. All panels are produced in accordance with international standards under the supervision of qualified specialists. All raw materials satisfy international standards.
The plant produces various panel types with thicknesses ranging between 40 and 60mm; the factory also manufactures fireproof panels. The panels are manufactured to supply both local and export retailers, who are assured of continuous stock.
