MKR LLC is a joint venture between Russian-Swedish OCC and German candle manufacturer Müller. The factory with a total area of 320,000 square meters located in the Tammisuo industrial estate of the Vyborg District became operational in late 2013. A total of RUB 450 million was invested in the project. The factory makes street, molded candles, and tea lights from wax.
