Franck Muller is said to have invested $2.82 million (£1.74m) in the makeover and modernisation of a Minsk-based watch manufactory.
Franck Muller representative Ege Tibin said the Swiss brand had been investing in its manufactory, the Minsk Watch Plant, for several years and plans to invest another $800,00 (£495,000) in the retooling of the factory by the year end.
According to the Belarusian Telegraph Agency, Andrei Stempen, chief engineer of Minsk Watch Plant, said that thanks to the investments the factory had managed to considerably improve the quality of its end products.
The manufactory has renewed the outdated equipment and is said to be in the process of mastering the production of silicate glass for watches. Minsk Watch Plant has also outlined plans to manufacture sapphire crystal in the future, which will be the first time it has been produced in the country.
